Mi casa en Lonquén / My house in Lonquen

  • Mi casa en Lonquen es en estilo colonial chileno, con vigas a la vista y corredor. Se ubica en el campo cerca de Santiago.
    El diseño de la casa fue hecho por nosotros mismos, por lo que recoge nuestros gustos y necesidades.
    Les muestro algunos de mis lugares preferidos:
  • My house in Lonquen has a chilean colonial style, with beams that you can see and a corridor. It is in the country-side, near of Santiago.The design of the house was made by ourselves (my husband and I), and for this reason it collects the things that we like and need. I show you some places that I prefer:

  • Acceso principal / Principal access
    La puerta antigua proviene de una demolición y el efecto de luz, producido por los vitrales laterales (que yo hice), me gusta mucho y siento que da una bienvenida cálida.

    The old door proceeds from a demolition and the effect of the light, made for the stained glass (I did it), make me feel a warm welcome.

  • Chimenea en el estar principal

    Definitivamente adoro la madera rústica y con signos de antigüedad. La mesilla de la chimenea fue hecha a partir de una viga de álamo bicentenaria, y escogí las secciones visiblemente deterioradas para remarcar las rusticidad. Muchos adornos son piezas adquiridas en ferias persas junto a cerámicas que pinté hace unos diez años.

    Definitely, I love the rustic wood with antiques signs. The shelf above the chimney was made from a beam of a bicentenary poplar, and I chose the sections visibly deteriorated because I wanted to show the rusticity of the wood.
  • El comedor / The dining room

    Este ambiente lo fui armando de a poco. A la mesa (hecha de vigas de demolición) le agregué sillas estilo normando compradas en una venta de garage. Posteriormente encontré, en otra feria, un velador del mismo estilo (con tallados espectaculares), el que transformé en un mini bar. Las paredes las pinté con esponja y pusé un stencil en la parte superior. Pinté en los platos de cerámica motivos de flores autóctonas chilenas.

    I made this place little by little. To the table (it was made with demolition beams) I added chairs with a 'normando' style that I bought in a garage sale. After I found, in another fair, a night table with the same style (and it has a spectacular carving), and I transformed it in a mini bar. I painted the walls with a sponge and I put a stencil in the up side of the wall. In addition, I painted the ceramic dishes with a design of some chilean's flowers.

Your home is amazing! It reminds me of my parents home. My mother was Spanish. She and my father were both very creative and loved nothing more than working on their home. Dad made the mantle over their fireplace from wood on their property, and a dining room table from a huge slab of Redwood they found on a trip to Northern California. I could go on and on. I would love to see more of your home!
