Inside in the living room, a supersized sofa as well as woven chairs integrate conventional Mexican materials with contemporary lines.
The living room’s original iron-framed windows as well as doors were left unpainted.
In the dining room, the glow of the bird’s-nest chandelier made by Patricia is showed in an acid-washed mirror inset into the wall. The tops of the dining table as well as broad bench were made of repurposed doors discovered locally. The original puny, stepped fireplace had no presence, so Patricia had the wall in the dining area rebuilt to integrate a larger fireplace.
Patricia played up the Cantera stone floors with floating concrete shelves. She replaced a bulky island with an old table, as well as hung a copper light fixture, made locally, overhead. “You can manifest any type of concept here; there’s always a metalworker or a weaver, or stone mason to help. It’s an artist’s heaven,” Patricia says.
Dishware by regional artisans is displayed on the kitchen’s open shelving.
In the primary bedroom, a kitschy vintage tapestry depicting swans adds character as well as pattern to the neutral linens. Patricia impulsively adds garden vines or Christmas lights to the chandelier she made, depending upon the season.
A glass jug of white tiger lilies gowns up the desk in the primary bedroom. waterfall drapes, made of layers of cotton, filter the light.
The spire of the well-known Parroquia de San Miguel Arcangel is visible from the terrace. Patricia stacked two wooden pallets to produce an unscripted coffee table, as well as added Acapulco chairs as well as poufs in natural woven fibres to establish a laid-back vibe.
A row of small lanterns as well as a pillow accent a comfortable seating nook on the terrace.
San Miguel is famed for its Spanish Colonial design as well as jacaranda trees (foreground), which bloom bright purple in spring as well as provide the terrace view an otherworldly quality.
