This Portuguese Vintage Modern Home is a STUNNER

This Vintage Modern Home is The Definition of Monday Motivation

Nestled in a small village in inland Portugal is our pick for this week’s Monday Motivation. This Vintage Modern home checks off all of the boxes for Macnab Style design, and then some. We would love to crack open a few bottles of Portuguese Wine with lead architect Filipe Saraiva and pick his brain about his creative process. We admire the use of natural raw materials, and also that it’s a little lofty. Click on each image to enlarge into a gallergy, and enjoy a little bit of house porn.

The exterior is a perfect mix of dark materials contrasting beautifully with exposed wood. Design styles like this are often seen here on the West Coast, so it’s awesome to see this spreading.

How’s this for leisure space? We love the idea of being able to see your car from inside the Vintage modern home. This is a high quality space to enjoy your favourite records and throw a party. Although if it were up to me I would love this to be a killer minimalistic work space.

The living areas of this Vintage Modern home are heavily reminiscent of Jordan’s loft in Mount Pleasant. The concrete floors, high ceilings, and an abundance of natural light make this the perfect area to relax and enjoy the ambiance. The contrast of soft colours in the interior are very pleasing to the eye. The open concept layout makes the entire area feel extremely roomy.

A small set of wooden stairs lead you upstairs to the loft style library/workspace. Also on this level are the bedrooms which retain the consistent vintage modern theme of minimalism, high ceilings, and natural light.

Outside of the living room is small patio unlike anything we have ever seen. This design allows the owners to enjoy the warm Portuguese environment, while also not getting roasted in the sun. The steps lead right into the driveway, offering an additional entrance to the Vintage Modern home.

Our last stop in the tour around the vintage modern home is the garage. The garage built with a high ceiling, and the frosted exterior offers plenty of privacy. As mentioned before, the glass bay-style door to the den is one the highlights of the house.
