Lisbon’s Beautiful Tiles

In Lisbon, it seemed, every second building was decorated in beautiful, colourful, patterned tiles; some well-kept and polished and others faded, implying a lost grandeur of sorts. The tiles – azulejos – in all their psychedelic glory imbued the city with a sense of cheer and enthusiasm. Art on every corner, a rainbow with every glance skywards.

I want to wear these prints on my dresses, drape my tables in patterned cloth and hang tile-print curtains in my bedroom, just so I might transport a little piece of Lisbon’s vivid gaiety with me.

    Oh wow! What a way to brighten up a street – I know what you mean about wanting to take it all with you. Can you imagine a skirt with a print like that? You couldn’t <i> not </i> be happy wearing it.
