STONE HOUSE: FAFE MOUNTAINS | PORTUGAL


We had heard about this place some time ago yet didn't quite think it was real when we first saw the picture. We've always been intrigued by the weird and wonderful and this is about a quirky a place as you'll see. It's nestled between two large natural rocks deep in  the Fafe moutains, Portugal. Although it's been in the press quite recently, the house was built some 37 years ago. Due to the current press, the area has seen a large increase in the foot traffic and the current owner has had to vacate the property. Not ideal.
We remember seeing, probably about 10 years ago, a tiny property for sale in the Telegraph. All one could see from the shot was a old wooden door within the face of a cliff. The property only had a 3/4 rooms carved into the rocks with obviously limited light but there was something so intriguing with this and have since been fascinated by things along these lines. There's a hotel, in Italy (from memory) which is based on the face of a cliff which we'll be looking to add shorty!! Exciting times

INTERIORS: HOLLAND PARK BY ALEXANDER WATERWORTH INTERIORS















Alexander Waterworth Interiors were asked earlier in the year to re-furb a newly purchased Holland Park property for a young Belgian/Italian angel investor. The refurb included a complete new garden and roof terrace, brand new bathrooms, bespoke joinery units/furniture and specifying all furniture, lighting and materials throughout. The client had quite a quirky edge and we rather enjoyed the shopping trips with the client, purchasing items including an old plane exit door which has been turned into a wall lamp to a antique barbers chair recently upholstered in a Kilim fabric.  interior design alexander waterworth. james waterworth interior design. waterworth james interiors. james waterworth interior design. alexander waterworth interiors. interior design colours. . waterworth james

CARTAGENA, COLOMBIA : PHOTOS BY ALEXANDER WATERWORTH INTERIORS





ALEXANDER WATERWORTH INTERIORS PHOTOS  

We were fortunate to have 3 days in Cartagena, Colombia, not so long ago. Obvious influences of Spanish colonial architecture really makes the old town one of the most beautiful places we've visited, that and the incredible colours throughout which we tried to capture in these photos but they don't quite to it justice. A large fort overlooks the old city walls which is well worth the visit with it's vast proportions and incredible views over sea.
