Garita Home, San Miguel de Allende, Mexico

The idea for this home was to use as much native Mexican materials as possible with a nod to Frida Kahlo's home in Coyocan, Mexico. We used the green on the metal frames window and door everywhere and it became our continuous color.
One dark brown tile was selected and manipulated into several different patterns throughout the home. Floors were leveled to accommodate a wheelchair user and a wonderful wheelchair ramp was designed from the ground floor to the roof
allowing for access for all as an alternate to the stairs, particularly at night or after lots of Margaritas.

Kitchen hoods, Color Relationships, Mexican Tiles
This kitchen hood existed in gray cement before the house was remodeled. With color and the geometry of the Mexican tiles on the back wall, it becomes sculpture and pattern.. a fun combination. photo credit: Margaret Larcade

Color, window trim and Mexican tiles
We like to choose a metal color for windows and doors that add to the color relationship palette. The metal in this house is always green.
