Discreetly located on a quiet corner of Palermo Hollywood, La Petite Maison is a wonderful place to taste the culture and spend time with "real Argentinos". There is something delightfully bohemian about the neighborhood with its offbeat restaurant/bars and its unique boutiques. It has a warm convivial buzz, not so hectic and pretentious.
Stepping inside La Petite Maison one can easily imagine that he or she has entered a charming little townhouse in Paris. Windows are framed with old French shutters that stretch from floor to ceiling in dark rich wood, creating a feeling of tranquility and privacy. The furnishings are an artful mix of French and Italian antiques with classic contemporary touches. All were discovered piece by piece at auctions, antique shops, and flea markets. Sensual fabrics were chosen to appeal to a sense of quiet luxury.
Collections of flowers, candles, mirrors, and old books create a beautifully poetic mood, especially in the living room surrounding the fireplace. Neo-classic lighting simply "glows" throughout the house, emphasizing the serenity and timelessness of it all.
Both rustic and refined, the dining room is dominated by a large trestle table and surrounded by eight Louis XVI chairs covered in delicious cognac leather. Whether this lovely room is used for cozy dinner parties or business gatherings, it is sure to promote an atmosphere of well being and casual elegance. Just a few steps away, French doors allow a smooth transition into the kitchen.
The stainless steel appliances are enclosed in cherry wood cabinetry, adding warmth and maintaining a traditional look with modern sensibility. Rugged marble floors add contrast to black granite counter tops. It is a well organized space, both beautiful and functional. The morning sun bathes the room with natural light and makes it a pleasant choice for enjoying the first cafe and medialuna of the day at the breakfast bar or maybe outside on the bougainvillea covered patio.
Upstairs, in the master bedroom, the king size bed takes center stage. Again, the use of luxurious fabrics for drapes, bedding and upholstery adds to the sensual ambiance.
The second bedroom (with queen size bed) opens to the terrace and overlooks the patio below. Both bedrooms have their own air conditioner/heating units. There is also an additional sleeping accommodation downstairs in the study that opens to the patio.
After almost two years, this residence has been completely revamped and transformed. It is now a comfortable, lived in family home, welcoming others to come for a magical visit.
