The third home was completely gutted and located on a hillside so that you entered the house by going down to the main level in an enclosed, expansive stone staircase with teal and fuchsia walls. The inside was sectioned into three separate “apartments” for a women from New York and her mother. The colors used were more typically Mexican with lime green, bright yellow and orange in the main floor living space and other contemporary color combinations in both women’s apartments. The mother had previously been an artist and her art was perfect in the colorful environment! The kitchens had teal-stained concrete and typical yellow Mexican tile, open shelves with bright Mexican dinnerware and glasses and an interesting glass cover on top of the range. I very much related to this home because the colors were my “soul’s desire” and I could see myself living in this cheerful space. She also had an interesting study, outdoor lower patio and a GORGEOUS rooftop with all my favorite colors, including lime green and aqua. She designed a typical Mexican Palupa, but took it up an extra notch with her own version of “Global Color.” The first photo of this entry is me on their great rooftop - I feel like I am in lime green/aqua heaven!
