space: a living room surrounded by greenery

This is probably one of my all-time favourite living-room images. Look at that ceiling and these large windows! And don't get me started on the double fireplace! This space belongs to graphic designer Mercedes Hernáez and her partner, architect and designer Alejandro Sticotti, who designed the house. The house is located on the outskirts of Buenos Aires in Argentina, and as you can see, it is surrounded by greenery. Hernáez refers to the house as "a garden with a roof." The photo was taken when Freunde von Freunden visited the couple last spring, a lovely feature filled with inspiring images. I was immediately drawn to the living room, a beautiful mix of wood, glass and bricks. Its simple furnishing appealed to me, that bench or table behind the sofa filled with books and the Butterfly Chairs, and the minimal décor.

On a personal note, I've been a little busy in the last days and had an exam this morning, or more like a quiz, which went very well and explains my yesterday's absence. Have a wonderful day!

  1. I say it: Surround yourself with greens to be happy and healthy. Be it a green outdoor space - or if you live in an urban surrounding - green plants in your home for a healthy, vital living atmosphere!
