The Door to Mexico

I think Mexican architecture is genius. The warming adobe, white-washed walls, vibrant blues, searing yellows, red-tiled roofs. The detail even goes into their doors, where a door is not just a portal with a doorknob but a work of art, melting with the essence of the house.

I strive to convey a sense of this south-western style in my own home with terracotta pots, blue margarita glasses and glistening sunflower picture frames but it never does the originality of the Mexican style any justice.
