ANA CORDEIRO & A LISBON STOREFRONT


The amazing thing about blogging is the way your location ceases to matter when it comes to connecting with people all over the world.  I have met some great people, whether or not we've ever come in contact face-to-face as yet. The opportunity to connect over common views, taste or interests isn't limited by geographic status and there's no lack of diversity. A few months ago, I ran across the work of a particular designer, before I was even aware of her identity. I kept seeing photos of her bright and clean design aesthetic popping up and had to pin them to my Pinterest board.  I received an email from a designer asking for details on commissioning a few paintings from me and when I visited her website, I realized it was HER! Ana Cordeiro. Ana is based in Lisbon, Portugal and is a very talented designer and entrepreneur who runs both a bricks and mortar shop and is soon opening an online design business/web shop. She was recently featured in Adore magazine and her elegant and colorful work is popping up everywhere! 
I so enjoyed painting her charming (pink!) storefront above. 


Ana is a lovely woman with a ton of flair. She likes to mix gorgeous color with clean, classic lines and plenty of white. An infusion of "happy" in any space. My kind of decorating!
Take a look at some of her work below......






Please take a few moments to stop by Ana's website here
If you're interested in having me capture your storefront, home or a little vignette on paper or canvas, please contact me here for more details and pricing.

I will definitely now need to take a look at her website. Fresh is the PERFECT word to describe her aesthetic and I love the smattering of pink/green!

Oh wow! My kind of decorating too! I LOVE all these rooms so much. And your painting of her shop is to die for! You should put that one in your shop too. Love blogging. Love the connections we make! Woo-hoo! Happy Monday, Anne!

I love Lisbon and the details of the city. Take a look at this piece... inspired in the hand-painted tiles around the city. Amazing, isn't it?
