Entries in Mexico (21)
When I spotted this home from Spanish Architectural Digest, I nearly had a coronary. This is everything I want my new house to be, but WAY more. It is the Mexico City residence of interior designer Dirk-Jan Kinet and it is filled with glorious colours and beautiful antiques, resulting in a vibe that is MUCH more European than Mexican. I absolutely love the greys on the walls in the dining room with the punch of magenta. It is quite an amazing transformation from what it was last year when it was featured on Freunde von Freunden. I prefer this version SOOOOO much more.
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. :-)
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.
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.
