At Home in Buenos Aires

hotel home buenos aires
Home in Buenos Aires has won the 2007 Wallpaper Design Award in the category Best New Hotel. And for a reason, this gorgeous boutique hotel oozes style. Home, designed by architects Rodrigo Cunill and Juana Grichener, is located in Buenos Aires’ hip Palermo Viejo neighborhood. Owners Tom Rixton and his Argentine wife Patricia O’Shea felt that there was a lack of suitable accommodation in Palermo Viego. They wanted their friends and family to visit, and therefore created Home.

The hotel’s décor is a eclectic mix of old and new, mixing vintage French wallpaper, Danish furniture and wool rugs from Chili, with custom made furniture like the watambu-wood beds. Every single room is decorated with great taste. I especially love the shades of apple-green and lemon that are consistently used in all spaces.

  • Going to Buenos Aries would be something, let alone staying here! I love the first room shown… the framed wallpaper, the clean lines of the furniture, and the accent of color from the vases… gorgeous.

  • I love the whole idea of giving us styling tips. That’s fantastic. Would love it if you would do this regularly. I am sure it takes a lot of time but maybe every few weeks. So helpful for your readers!

  • Thanks! I really enjoyed making this post (yes, it did take some time…). I will make it a regular feature on the style files.

    ps, did you know that the butterfly chair was invented by three architects from argentina? i just found that out, might be something of interest to your readers, 🙂 calma chica had a *gorgeous leather ones..too bad you can’t fly home with big stuff!

  • Thanks Jenny! I love that butterfly chair. It is designed by Antonio Bonet, Jorge Ferrari-Hardoy and Juan Kurchan. Unfortunately it is hard to find those chairs here. That chair in leather is gorgeous. Too bad you couldn’t take it home!
