Robin's grandfarther Clough Williams-Ellise started building his dream village 80 years ago on the coast of Wales, the village part Italiante design and part salvaged and recycled architectural features. The colourful village has been a mecca for the famous and curious for four decades. Robin, managing director of the estate lives with his wife Sian in a house, also designed by his grandfather, on the edge of the village. Sian, trained as a graphic designer is now involved in the retail side of the village, and was influential in the redesign of the interior of her home and says that it was created to be an organised space so that she can keep track of her busy life with three children, it also features liberal applications of the village's own registered colour, Portmeirion green. writer vinnylee@btinternet.com
