Located in Torres Vedras, Portugal, this 19th century townhouse has been dramatically updated with geometric, lacquered swathes of bold color. Yet, what look to be original details remain - in moldings, banisters and ornamental plaster ceiling work. Creative? Most definitely. But I can't decide if the contrast is enough to save me from the feeling of stepping into a Lichtenstein painting or Pee Wee's playhouse.
Are the updates working, or are they distracting from the original character of the house? I would love to hear what you think!
