The colors of Mexico

Diverse interiors from Costa Careyes to the Yucatan Peninsula

Barbara and René Stoeltie, the dynamic writer and photographer duo, have struck gold again—this time with a truly breathtaking look at Mexico’s most remarkable abodes. The Stoelties have traveled far and wide, from Costa Careyes to the Yucatan Peninsula, seeking out homes to surprise, delight, and inspire you. The contrast between Constructivist architect Luis Barragán’s home, a restored 16th century hacienda, and traditional Mayan thatched-roof dwellings is telling of the vibrant palette of textures and hues to be found with the pages of this book. This diverse selection of villas, casitas, haciendas, cabanas, and palapas paints a lively and colorful picture of Mexican style.

"Living in Mexico ist wie ein Bonbon: Die verführerische rosafarbene Hülle umgibt ein vielschichtiges köstliches Inneres. Im Gegensatz zum Bonbon hält die Freude am Buch viele Stunden. Doch Vorsicht, das Buch macht zwar nicht dick, es kann aber süchtig nach den anderen Bänden dieser Serie machen. Lassen Sie sich verzaubern!"
