We already shared with you what makes Latin American design one of the best aesthetics out there in our recent blog post "What Is Latin Design?" and this article in Dwell by Kelsey Keith takes that a step further by showcasing some of the best modern homes in Latin America. Through carefully designed furniture and intricate architecture, these designers and architects truly make breathtaking homes!

In the home above, you may notice the classic BKF chair which is one of our most popular items at Diseño. They're comfortable and give a modern yet vintage vibe once you know the history behind them. See our collection of BKF chairs here with the choice of leather or hide cover seatings!

Home Tour: La Baronia House / Nicolás del Rio + Max Núñez

Built in 2009, La Baronia House floats above a vast open ocean, thus named after an ingenious species of butterfly. Often considered a modern masterpiece of Chile, this structure needed to be stronger than most around it since it was built into a Quintero, Valparaíso region hillside.

The harsh elements of the ocean, including the salty sea air, are extremely corrosive to most building materials. Thanks to a predominantly opaque outer envelope made of two corrosive resistant materials, glass and weathering steel, this structure remains sealed in the harshest natural elements of nature.

Because the architects Nicolás del Rio and Max Núñez agreed that this project needed to be done on a budget, they decided that the interior would be represented by beautiful natural wood accents and large bay windows representing the ocean appropriately.

Home Tour: Inside a Connecticut Farmhouse With Vintage Soul

Home Tour Inside a Connecticut Farmhouse With Vintage Soul


Settled into a career as the author of her lifestyle site, as well as being an interior stylist and floral designer, Amy Beth Cupp Dragoo and her husband decided to leave the city life. They sold their SoHo loft and purchased a property in the hills of Litchfield, Connecticut, for weekend getaways and rented a small postage stamp-sized apartment in New York City for the workweek.




Amy adapted to country living; she had plenty of space, was able to enojy sunrises and sunsets, and quickly learned to take design cues from Mother Nature. “I was inspired by the colors you see during winter in northwest Connecticut,” she says. “Black, gray, brown, pale blue, and stark white. By the time I added art, rugs, and scatter pillows, the vibe changed a bit, but if you stripped all of my furniture out of here, you’d see only neutrals.”



“I refer to my husband as Mr. Design Within Reach”




Amy, who has been collecting anything vintage since college, styles each room for their purpose. The kitchen has a focus on contrast, the living room is elegant, and the bedroom is dark and gloomy. We Love how Amy styles pieces of different scales and shapes them together, creating unmatched personally in this beautiful Connecticut home.

Home Tour: Michael C. Hall in Los Angeles

"The architect wanted to make this house 'modern Spanish'—open and airy with really clean lines," says interior designer Kishani Perera.




This metallic herringbone-patterned console was a flea market find. The Stedman Chandelier from Arteriors is made up of glass bottles, creating a dramatic opening scene in the entryway, considered clean yet retro with amazing contrast.



“Some people are scared of color, says Perera. Michael's not, but if you are, you can still go all neutral, like this sitting room, and make it interesting by adding texture. A 1960s leather-upholstered sofa and a simpler, linen-covered one, provide ample real estate for lounging.”
