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.)

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.

  1. Oooooh… (looong longing sigh)! I want to go there! I so want to go there… and it's not for the shoes. :)

    (still addicted to tango)

  2. Oh, do I miss this mag… thank you for allowing me to revisit it and that magical city.

  3. 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 :-)

  4. 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.



  5. I love these!! I would love to see Buenos Aires…

    So sorry to hear about your father…I hope things work out okay.

    xox, mavi

  6. I am envious of that rooftop garden!

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

  7. I love the old Domino posts. This one is really lovely.

    P.S. Please just remember to take care of yourself while taking care of your Dad.

    Best wishes- THL

  8. 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.

  9. 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

  10. Great photos.

    I am so sorry to hear about your dad! I send my love and hope he is still smiling and planning his escape route. Hugs to you all


    PS I admire you so much, you are so brave!

  11. 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

  12. I never had a lot of issues of Domino so I really love these posts. I'm inspired to dust off my magazine collection and share!

  13. I love these and especially the living room!!

    Will continue to keep you and your family in my prayers. **HUGS**

  15. Bs As is beautifull, you should come! you ´d love it.
    ( and I live here!)
    i´ll keep comeing to this fantastic blog.


  16. Stumbled onto your blog today and absolutely love it…please keep posting your Sunday Domino feature…it is almost as good as having the magazine back in circulation!

  17. 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
