Architectural Digest Spain

speaks to me.

In Spanish. So I can't understand what she's saying. But I can make out the pictures just fine.

And some of them make my heart race. Luckily for me, the blogger known as The Decorator undoubtedly felt the same symptoms, because she scanned and posted pictures of Marcelo Lucini's apartment in Buenos Aires. 

For me.

When I see this space, it reminds me how I want my own decorating project to evolve - every piece a treasure and a story behind every piece. And for Marcelo, every piece a perfect detail. Gems. Seeing them all strengthens my resolve to be mindful of what I put into my home. No fillers. Only those things that mean something to me.

My pieces won't be important. No provenance. No design treasures. But simply meaningful to me.

(OK, so I could be imaging that's how he furnished his home, but it sure feels that way to me. And I'm going on that.)

According to the New York Times, after 15 years in banking, the Buenos Aires-based Marcelo Lucini decided to leap from the corporate realm into a more creative one. Inspired by Argentina's abundant natural resources and craft-making traditions, he started Airedelsur, a line of stylish home furnishings made from local materials. Although Airedelsur is sold at stores like Bergdorf Goodman, you'll save a lot of pesos by going directly to the source - (definitely worth it to take a peek!)

  4. I´m an architect and every space I see I look it as a project. Last year I travelled to Argentina and rented furnished apartments in buenos aires and all the time I though new ideas to redecorate the place!
