Looks like an ocean theme to me with the waves in the paver stones, blue color - ahhh! I really dig the balcony with the pretty blue flowers, too!

It looks like the shopkeeper might be Greek and he was homesick for the colors of the window shades on Mykonos.

By the way, we have posted photos of Portugal this week on our Viva la Voyage travel photos site. I hope you find them of interest and deserving of your wonderful country.

Such a lovely photo! The elements all complement one another: floor tile, vivid blue building and grill work.

Beautiful architecture and details.

Hilda said...

Amazing color! And I agree with everything that Leif said.

This is really good - I love that old fashioned blue. The wavy floor is like Op Art - it seems to move.
Cheers.

Now this is a color that would certainly attract me and make me want to check out what is inside. Very nice.

Gorgeous photo. Even the flowers are blue, and I love the pattern in the pavement.

That is one of the nicest "blues" I've ever seen. Sure will get one's attention. Love the balcony, too.

I think before I post another floral picture, I'd better check with you to find our the proper name! You're amazing!

What caught my eye in the portal shot was the design of the walkway but once I got up close I so admired the row of flowers complimenting that stunning blue facade.

Beautiful blue, and such an interesting walkway.

Very blue indeed! The kind of cobblestone in the sidewalk reminds me of Brazil, where it's also very common!
God bless you!

I love it!! I love the wonderful blue, I love the balcony and I love the sidewalk pavers. YUM!! MB

Just 'blue' is an understatement. I love how the decor from the mosaic floor tiles right up to the balcony flowers compliment each other.

Joan Elizabeth said...

That's tiles with a new modern twist. I like it.
