Streets of Lisbon | No Apathy Allowed

If you’re a design geek, it’s perhaps nearly impossible not to fall in love with Lisbon’s architecture and the colorful tiles (azulejos) that adorn so many of the buildings.  A huge highlight for me was simply getting lost in the winding streets and snapping away to my heart’s content.  Since I told you all about my visit in my last post, I’ll keep this post short on words and long on photographs.

Amazing, right?  Inspires me to further explore Portugal, like Sintra and Porto!  For even more pictures from my time is Lisbon, click on over to my Flickr album and my Instagram account.

Would you decorate your home with these colorful tiles?  What was your favorite building in Lisbon?

    I have a shot of those very same small turquoise pattern tiles! I so love Lisbon. I can’t wait to read about your trip there. The photos are so beautiful, Mandi.

    So beautiful!!! It really makes me want to go back there. Definitely check out Sintra – from what I remember, that was my favorite from my trip. And I really want to go to Porto!
