One of the housewares shops on my must-do list this trip is the super stylish airedelsur. Its founder Marcelo Lucini’s apartment in Buenos Aires was published a while back in several magazines but it’s still one of the chicest around so let’s revisit it, shall we?
I’ll let you know if anything tempted me in his shop!

I’ve never watched Extreme Homemakover. (Is it still on the air?) For some reason I was never drawn to it which is strange considering how much I love makeovers. Well, in any case, there’s a Swedish version and this is the host, Hanna Wessman in her own home.
At this point, I’m pretty convinced everyone in the entire country of Sweden has great taste and lives in understated, bright, white, beautiful but relaxed homes!

Why I Love It: First, the knock out architecture. It was designed by James Evans, a protégé of Louis Kahn and renovated by Robert Dean, an architect who once worked for Philip Johnson. Second, I love that it’s a happy story for the family who rebuilt everything after the house was destroyed by fire. Last but not least, glass houses usually tend to be minimalist and stark in decor and that is generally what works for the architecture. But this house goes to show that color, traditional elements and layers can work in a midcentury home. In fact, what drew me to this house initially were the colors and layers in the top image, especially that blue shelf. As I read about it, it was no wonder: it’s a lacquered linen bookshelf designed by my hero Albert Hadley.
