hola, si here, from the french by design blog. are you ready for a new “i could live here” house tour? since spring is taking its time to show up for many of us this year, i figured we could dose up on some vitamin d, so we’re heading to sunny uruguay for a unique house tour where concrete, neon and timeless style take the center stage.

andrea and marlo acquired this 19th century home in the small village of garzón, province of rocha, uruguay, and gave carte blanche to diego montero of studio m+ to remodel the space into a modern summer home. now, andrea and marlo can enjoy a light filled space, open to the outdoors, and sparingly furnished with timeless design pieces, punctuated with vibrant splashes of electric red. oh, oui, i could live here, for sure!

  1. I really love the contrast of the concrete and the colorful furniture and fabrics! It looks beautiful :)

  2. Beautiful, although too stoic for my taste. It looks sort of uninhabited, like it was just prepared for a photo spread with no real humans living it. :(

  3. What an incredible home! Love the rustic meets contemporary meets neon fun concoction! My fave shot is the bed with the Tulip table – love the styling!

  4. Man, that kitchen is the stuff my dreams are made of. And those beds! Sigh. So nice.

    Maja: The light is New Zealand designer David Trubridge’s Coral pendant. I have it in my hallway, and the shadows it casts are really beautiful.

  5. love it – neutral palette without being boring . . .
    Am definitely going to add the image of the floor tile embedded in concrete carpet look for my own mental home inspiration file!
