Is that a latilla ceiling? What is the wood?

Where can I get these tables?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Off a master bedroom is what Howell dubs the "margarita lounge." To protect it from the weather, this terrace has a concrete roof with a thatched ceiling similar to the one that covers the sunset terrace down by the pool.While the home has a very carefully planned sequence of views and axes, the influence of the local style and craftsmanship allowed Howell to relax the rigor and let the design evolve in an organic way. It's very befitting for a house that emerged from completely local materials and talent.The home is also available to rent. For more information, visit retreatmexico.com.More:Modern Mexican Paradise
Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR added this to 20 Sublime Outdoor Havens
This covered terrace in Mexico offers a panoramic view and enough seating for a big crowd. This would be a perfect party spot. Margaritas, anyone?
3. To infuse a space with energy. "Nobody wants to see a picture of an empty restaurant, bar or lounge," says photographer Michael Kelley. Kelley welcomes the addition of warm bodies and smiling faces to avoid a "postapocalyptic feeling," as he calls it, in spaces that are meant to have people in them. This rooftop patio in Mexico is breathtaking with or without people. But imagine what the photo would look like if the guests weren't congregated in the different conversation areas. It would be strange to see the space without people, especially since the patio is called the "margarita lounge." The cluster of people in the space is absolutely fitting.

‘All of the interior wall surfaces are simple plaster,’ Howell says. ‘In this bathroom, they had been naturally prepared for paint, but we left them like this to show off the beautiful variegated colour and texture.’ The basin was another antique local roadside find. For the bath, using concrete was a no-brainer because the artisans were able to form just about anything out of concrete on-site.
