Poem of Colors

The most remarkable abodes from Costa Careyes to the Yucatán Peninsula
South of the border, rich colors and woven textiles form a unique design aesthetic, crafted by the union of local Aztec and Mayan cultures and Spanish influences. Bold pigments and vivid patterns come together in simple and rustic spaces, resulting in a way of living that is both invigorating and homely; an authentic Mexican style.

The dynamic writer and photographer duo Barbara and René Stoeltie have struck gold again—this time with a truly breathtaking look at Mexico’s most remarkable abodes. Traveling far and wide, from Costa Careyes to the Yucatán Peninsula, this photographic journey will surprise, delight, and inspire you.

From the home of Constructivist architect Luis Barragán, a restored 16th-century hacienda, to a traditional Mayan thatched-roof dwelling, the contrast of styles within the pages of this book are testament to the country’s vibrantly diverse palette of textures and hues. With many new images, some never published before, prepare to be transported to the heart of lush and eclectic Mexico.

Living Mexico. Beautiful!!

Feel the Mexican sun and way of living. Very inspirational

Colorful delight

Eugenio, October 27, 2021
Ever fancied living inside an explosion of colors? Well, this is it: a thousand (not kidding) ideas to fill your house with splashing ideas from an altogether different world. Of course, most of the time the ideas are viable only if you *actually* live in Mexico, but who knows? You can always decorate only a small corner, or a wall... Generally speaking this book is really useful for decorators, interior designers, or simple architecture (and travel) lovers just like me. Simply be inspired by it

The Magic of Mexico, Ancient and Modern.

Beautiful book reflecting native and invading art in Central America.

A really lovely book, full of incredible images. I bought it for my mother who used to live in Mexico and who just moved into a new home, this inspired her decor choices (and brought a lot of joy for us sitting and chatting about it together). Highly recommend
