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.
Barbara & René Stoeltie both began their careers as artists and gallery owners. With René as photographer and Barbara as writer, they have been collaborating on interior design articles since 1984, contributing to such inﬂuential magazines as Vogue, The World of Interiors, AD, Elle, House and Garden, Country Living and House Beautiful.
