PANTONE 2021: FALL WINTER COLOURS
Every year we see a change in the way we design our spaces and new colour trends come forward. This year with harsh changes in habits we saw a shift in our priorities that made us stay more time at home. Since the on-going pandemic gives no signs of actually going away we feel the need to invest more in creating a beautiful environment for the place we still spend more time at, our home. These changes in society are reflected in the new colour trends for 2021.
Urging for some sense of warmth and brighter days, we can observe a lot of soft nudes but also happy brighter colours.

Most decorating books focus on one designer; the rest focus on one period, one trend, one room. This book, for the first time, has the big picture: ALL the names everybody must know from the entire 100-year history of interior design.

RESTAURANTS WE COVET
The worlds finest luxury restaurants: In this issue, CovetED featured the cuisine of the world. We present you some of the best Michelin starred restaurants, where sea flavours meet fine dining.
OCEAN RESTAURANT, WHERE SEA FLAVOURS MEET GRANDIOUS FINE DINING
Ocean, Vila Vita Parc, Porches
With spectacular Atlantic views, Ocean offers the perfect combination of sublime food, seamless service and an atmosphere of casual elegance, and has held two Michelin stars since 2011 – a tribute to Hans Neuner and his team. The decor, based on a palette of blue and golden shades is the reflection of peaceful seaside scenery, and the magnificent corals which fill up one of its sidewalls, as well as the Murano crystals resembling medusas by the entrance, are a clear clue to the inspiration behind Ocean’s philosophy.
CovetED had the pleasure of visiting Ocean Restaurant for the second time to meet the new executive Menu by the Chef. Entitled “Discovering Portugal”, the executive Menu promises to bring a new definition to the Portuguese traditional flavours.
THE INSPIRATION THAT COMES FROM THE SEA
Gastronónimo Fortaleza do Guincho
The French-inspired cuisine and school, which had placed the Fortaleza do Guincho restaurant, on the world map of gastronomy gave way, surprisingly, to a young Portuguese chef, Gil Fernandes the youngest Portuguese chef in a Michelin star restaurant. CovetED had the pleasure of meeting the chef and to taste the contemporary served in this coveted restaurant in the Guincho road.
