Hotel Casa Delina

Mauricio Guillen emailed us about his latest interior design project, and because I absolutely adore Mexico, this one gave me that warm and fuzzy feeling. Casa Delina is located in historic downtown Comitán, Chiapas (close to the Guatemalan border). The hotel is a home built in 1851 that has undergone some serious renovations to modernize it and provide all the necessities you need. It has eight rooms in which each one has its own decor theme, and each showcases art from artists located throughout the world. Its central courtyard and lush landscaping make this hotel SO appealing...and over the winter when planning my yearly trip to Puerto Vallarta, I might see if I can squeeze a trip in to stay here for a few days. :-)

Kababie Arquitectos

Elías Kababie is an architect and interior designer from Mexico whose work came across our inbox the other day. His designs are for the most part modern/contemporary with creative touches and an industrial edge. Love this first apartment. A cool bachelor's pad in my favourite colour combo - except I would switch out the jeweled chandelier for something modern and edgy.

Casa la punta

We mostly feature homes on DTI that have fabulous interiors. The following home is more about the architecture. It was sent to us by the folks of newly established Mexican architecture firm Central de Arquitectura. Located in Bosques de las Lomas, Mexico, it's an incredible feat of design with a huge concrete box on top of a smaller glass one. WHOA. I love anything cantilevered.

The luxury of simplicity

The good things in life can often be the simplest. Family, friends, shelter, water ... the beach, fun and a view ... sun and shade and nothing to do but relax, chill. Sitting squarely in the sand this concrete and tile house is as stylish as it is distilled to the minimum for a fabulous beach holiday. Todos Santos beach houses by Gracia Studio in Baja region of Mexico. I could live like this forever.

DIN interiorismo

Here at DTI we love blogging designs from around the world. So I was pleased when the folks at DIN interiorismo, an interior design and architecture firm in Mexico, emailed us with some photos of a few of their projects. I found the following home, Casa A.P., to be the most intriguing. Here is some info on this beautiful home for a family of five:
The goal was to convey dynamism through furniture in the living room and bar, with items that can move, rotate and open to transform the space according to the desired event or activity. The breakfast area and family room communicate with each other through a wood and glass furniture, which allows the light passage and reflection, but add breadth to space. The game zone is the energy and comfort area, achieved with a color palette that highlights citric shades combined into walls, cushions and rug. Furniture consists in different size modules that play with dimensions to enclose television, video games and everything needed.
House stands out for its unique spaces in which wood variety is combined. This broad selection considered Maple for the bedrooms, zebrawood in the master bedroom and living room, and Indian rosewood for the dining room. The wood nobility and warmth allowed a color palette for children's bedrooms and burned colors for common areas and the parents' bedroom, resulting in a high design family environment.

690m2 house-building construction approx., distributed on two levels at which these areas are located as follow. Upper level: four bedrooms, TV and work areas; lower level: living room/bar, dining room, with breakfast room, family room and game zone.
