de adobe en mexico..

Sun drenched homes

Colors - mellow, and rich

Cool courtyards

Cobbled pathways

Colonial estates

Rich heritage

I could have been talking about India..

But no, I am talking about Mexico!

All this and more, from the design galleries of award winning authors

LOVE this post. In addition to loving Texas architecture, I have always been drawn to Mexican design. I love "Hacienda Style" as well as their other books. My friend has been using my books as guides to get a Mexican feel with color in her courtyard. Great inspiration!

México has the best and maybe the worst places to live. The differences between people are worring.
The photographs are very beatiful

Hi,

For me, this is decorating with the heart and not just because a magazine says that this or that style is trendy.
It's feeling good at home.

Best regards,

José

Isn't it amazing how some old cultures have a lot of aesthetics in common? A lot of old Indian ikat fabrics look very similar to the colour combinations used in ikat from South America and Africa...

Love the image created on the floor by the shadow of the trees in the first image.

I absolutely love haciendas! They are full of colours, warmth and are very charming. I stayed in Mexico for about 4 months, you should check some of the pictures on my blog! ;D

Thanks HCH Girl! I am on the look out for this book in India :)

echar un remiendu - you are right, and this is true for almost any country or region..

Bhavna said...

Glad you feel this way Jose'! :)

Thanks Twisha!

I agree Anaka. Its is very interesteing to research through the history of fabrics, motifs and design and find out how close different cultures are!

Heading over to your blog NOW, Alexia! :)

Thanks Debra!

Hello Bavna, I am new to your blog although I don't know why I haven't discovered you earlier. You see, I have been doing a lot of research online on India as I am building a Indian Palace dolls' house. I live in Singapore and have been fascinated with India and Indian culture for a long long time now. I love your blog so much I don't know where to begin :)! It is so inspiring and a good source for making minis, believe it or not. I will be back again and again.

The canopy bed in the orange/golden light looks amazing. A very elegant presentation. A similar piece in blue wall creates a completely different feeling.
