Portugal-born Melita Silva and her husband journey to her native country twice a year in search of the vibrantly colored ceramics—vases, pitchers, candleholders, and more—that help define sun-drenched, Mediterranean decors. Alongside arresting pottery you'll find antique furniture, table linens, and quilted bedding. The next best thing? A trip to Portugal to hand-pick the pottery yourself.
