Starting to dream about design.

29 Mar

Just heard from our lawyer and the glitch that has been holding up closing on the house should be fixed by Wednesday so, fingers crossed, things should be able to move forward then. So I have been allowing myself to dream once again. I ordered several books from the library for inspiration. First up is this one, Casa Yucatan, by Karen Witynski and Joe P. Carr.

Casa YucatanLusciously illustrated and well sourced, this book is the perfect starting point for understanding the colours, textures and styles of  the Yucatan. The cover photo is of a walled courtyard which I could create between my two casitas here. Hard to imagine? Well, I like to dream big!

Hows this for a palette? The house is already yellow and white so adding a few punches of pepper colours will add just the right spice. Don’t think old colonial Mexico think more hot mid-century modern.IMG_3275

 

Love the Multi coloured steps. I see this on the stairs leading up and down from the terrace in the hot pepper palette!

One of these for the concrete couch on the terrace. Perfect!

I would love to have stairs like these leading to a roof top deck.IMG_3313

And finally, I can just picture this in the large casita.
