A Domino Favorite: Buenos Aires

Domino: Buenos Aires

This story about Maria Noel's Buenos Aires apartment ran in the June 2006 issues of Domino Magazine. I remember immediately falling in love with this upholstered bed...

I love how the blue reading lamp is attached to the headboard.
Very undesignerly.
The black and white chairs in this photo below are wonderful....

This little settee with the grouping of old Japanese prints is lovely. (I love settees, maybe because I've spent so many years living in small spaces in expensive Los Angeles.)

And here's Domino's Buenos Aires shopping guide.

The San Telmo neighborhood looks so charming!

I've been enjoying revisiting my old issues of Domino here on Sundays. Today's post was especially a welcome distraction. I'm facing a major decision this week regarding my father, who was recently diagnosed with a terrible bone marrow disease.

I will keep you posted. I promise.

(Just click the photos above if you want to see them large on my Flickr page! All the credits are there as well.)

I love the illustration on the room divider! The Domino-Articles are very inspiring, I should check if they sell in Europe too - I've never heard of it before :-)

I adore how the colours in the screen match the colours in the headboard. THAT seems like good design to me.

I've been away and I'll try to catch up on my reading soon.

I am envious of that rooftop garden!

Hurry up and come to Buenos Aires! It is still really affordable for tourists.

The spaces we can control, like the rooms in our homes, can be such a source of comfort when so much outside seems beyond our best efforts to manage. I'm praying for your father with all confidence that our inspiring Englishmuse will find a way to place of balance and serenity.

I had a subscription to Domino and was sad that they discontinued the mag. Maybe they will come back like Victoria did. I like the pic of the street performe

I'm in love with the whole first photo, the bed of course and especially the beautiful screen and the lovely bed cover. I absolutely ache inside with desire.

I wish you and your family didn't have to go through such difficult times, Tina. I hope it will all somehow end up well. I will think about you. xoxo

Getting a house of your own is a lifetime achievement and a home mortgage helps you in achieving this milestone much earlier than it would otherwise have been possible. In fact, the first home mortgage is also filled with a lot of emotion. A home mortgage is really something that makes dreams come true. See also Buenos Aires Apartments

Thanks for the article
