If you are headed to Portugual this Summer, we're hoping that you’ll fall in love with the good weather, the fresh fish and the marvelous beachy feel of its two major cities, Lisbon and Porto. Inspired by the arrival of a typical Portuguese Summer, we would like to highlight 3 decor trends that are *absolute* must-haves in 2018. Here they are:
With almost 1800 km (1118 mi) of coastline, it’s not surprising that Portugal is truly inspired by the sea and overall nautical imagery. So this Summer we are truly falling in love with home accessories featuring boats, ropes and knots. For example, at LX Crafts Co you find a boat windchime, a decorative metal boat on a wood base or even our Rattan Stool, which combines knots with our traditional wicker baskets.

Aqua & Turquoise Decor
Speaking of nautical, do you know what else we are crazy about this Summer? Turquoise, which is one of the trendiest colors of this time of year. Take a little bit of the ocean vibe into your home with the help of turquoise accessories like our Ballsta Glass Vase or our Aqua Bud Vase. You can decorate them with dried flowers, a light potpourri or our personal favorite to keep up with the nautical theme, sea shells.

Holidays mean suitcases!
And when you think of travelling and holidays… you think about suitcases, which are also a pretty cool home decor accessory. Aside from using old suitcases as an accessory, you can re-purpose them as a table / storage box. Along with the suitcases, we are also in love with old, wooden boxes which are great for storage and a simple way of creating a distinct decor feature in your home.
