Incredibly beautiful, classic, and timeless architectural details of Mexican style are shown in over 300 color photographs of new, old, and remodeled traditional homes and gardens. From Spanish Colonial facades in San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, Mexico, to the best of the Mission and Spanish Eclectic homes, this volume is a must for everyone interested in Mexican architecture and outdoor charm. This book excites the reader’s imagination through nine chapters, including facades, doors, gates, portales & patios, columns, fountains, pools, cantera stonework, and gardens. Arcades support massive tiled roof overhangs and bring shade to the outdoor sala — an affirmation for outdoor living at its best. Sparkling pools and spouting fountains bring tranquility to flower-filled gardens and courtyards. The pictures will inspire decorators, designers, architects, builders, and homeowners looking for traditional and exciting ideas. Everyone who enjoys looking at beautiful facades, outdoor living areas, and gardens will covet this book.
