While color was the primary emphasis in the home's design, the client also wanted her house to feel authentic. Wood, stones and other natural materials play a prominent role in Mexican design, so Astleford brought those elements into the home as well. The stonework in this outside seating area is made up of Milsap stone, which provides an elegant contrast to the custom turquoise finish on the ceiling of the portico.

The fireplace surround in the family room was found in San Miguel de Allende, and Astleford had it reworked to fit. This room is full of color and pattern, so Astleford kept the walls white as a crisp contrast.

The client found the white art deco–style sofas and chairs at a flea market in Northern California, and brought them back to Texas. Since they're not incredibly comfortable, Astleford used the turquoise sofa as an anchor. This cozy area is just outside the kitchen, creating an open and entertainment-friendly space.

Another exposed piece of dry, stacked Milsap stone lends texture and visual interest to the dining room ceiling, while a blue accent wall draws the eye to the outdoors. A playful iron bottle rack holds empty wine bottles to create an ever-growing sculpture.

The entryway is adorned with a brilliant pair of Lucite lamps that Astleford found at a design shop in California. These incredible pieces were once in one of Liberace's homes and provide a beautiful contrast to the antique Mexican console.

While most media rooms are dark and stodgy, the client wanted something more colorful and brighter to fall in line with the rest of her home. A blue lacquered bar creates the ideal place to serve up movie-time treats and matches the turquoise linen covered walls perfectly.
