Before settling down in his apartment in an 18th-century townhouse in Lisbon, the wayfaring Interior decorator Pedro Espírito Santo had spent time working with the chief curator at Versailles, dressing up the Portuguese army headquarters in Mozambique, and tending to a horse farm in Brazil. His home, profiled in the latest issue of Architectural Digest, is naturally a marvelous confluence of these experiences. After outfitting the place with modern comforts like an English cast-iron tub, shower, and a proper bedroom, he filled it with eye-catching objects and pattern-mixing furnishings—18th-century azulejos tiles, Brazillian artwork, and vintage bergères are just some of the eye-candies to discover.
