Interview By:
— Tell us a bit about Flattered please.
Miguel: “Flattered is an attempt to create something cozy and warm, different from the hotel chains. A place where people can feel at home, yet at the same time they can experience cool design.

There are five apartments for rent in total and we live only a few minutes away, so we can provide the attention our guests deserve.”

— What are the facilities like in each apartment?
Miguel: “The apartments are fully equipped to be self-catering. We have kitchens with all the appliances one needs as well as unique items that aren’t standard. For example, the dishes and the cups are all from secondhand shops, and the soaps in the bathrooms are from a very old, traditional Portuguese company.

We offer a daily cleaning service and breakfast. We have a agreements with friends who teach yoga onsite, offer massages, babysitting, as well as guided tours to Porto.”

— How would you describe the style of the apartments?
Miguel: “One of the things behind the project was flexibility to accept more than two people in each apartment. The apartments were all open spaces originally. They were loft-like apartments. The idea was to offer an extra bed without intruding into the space. We eventually settled on wooden boxes that are a little higher than the floor, with a drawer bed that is concealed underneath and can be pulled out.

Otherwise there are furniture items from vintage stores, pieces of classic design, as well as new pieces. There’s a bit of everything. It’s an eclectic mixture.”

— And you also show artists’ work in each apartment?
Miguel: “In each apartment there are three, four or even five pieces by different artists. A friend of ours is a graffiti artist and he prepared a piece for us and told us about another artist, and it kind of started from there.

The idea is to have these pieces for a period of time and then rotate, so different artists can exhibit their pieces. And they are all for sale. We provide a catalog for people to look at. I think people enjoy this new way of acquiring art, living with it for a while and maybe deciding to buy it.”
