Summer House in Uruguay

Today we'll visit an interesting home in Uruguay. Argentines Federico Bonomi and Cynthia Kern purchased this 1850's original farmhouse in Uruguay with the idea of turning it into a hotel. When the restoration was over they decided to keep it as their own second home. It is located in Carmelo which is a short distance from the border with Argentina. Well out of the ordinary, they left some of the walls completely bare and raw and combined antique and rustic furniture, floral prints an whimsical details in every room.

Ljus och välkomnande entré.

Mixed recycled ceramic tiles for the kitchen floor.

French style rug painted by hand directly on the wood flooring in the dining room.

Love to hear your thoughts on this home!

  5. I love this home! As someone who is thinking about the day she and her husband move to his homeland of Uruguay, it's nice to dream that I might have such a lovely restored home there! If had the money and decorative ability of course. :-). I think there are many wonderful touches in this home. Thank you for sharing it.
