Item Description...
In 1521, when the Spanish arrived in Mexico, they were amazed at the spectacular architecture and complex urban planning they encountered in the great city of Tenochtitln (modern-day Mexico City). To the native Mayan, Aztec, and Olmec traditions that had flourished throughout Mexico, the Spanish brought their own influences, resulting in an extraordinarily rich design heritage that survives to this day.

Acclaimed architectural photographer Tim Street-Porter vividly captures this enduring passion for design in Casa Mexicana Style, the follow-up to his best-selling Casa Mexicana (more than 100,000 copies sold). In this gorgeous new book featuring more than 250 photographs, Street-Porter takes us on an insider's tour of 30 stunning homes, from urbane city apartments and modernist beach houses to stately rural haciendas and lovingly restored colonial townhouses.

All of the residences showcased here are enlivened by a natural blending of indoors and outdoors, a vibrant palette shaped by the sun-drenched surroundings, and an artful incorporation of the country's celebrated crafts and handiwork. Whether large or small, historical or contemporary, Mexican houses are artistic statements, expressing the unique and inimitable lifestyle of their creators. Casa Mexicana Style is a welcoming invitation to bask in the beauty of these homes, to enjoy their charm and sophistication.

What a book!  Aug 6, 2008
This book is just the best purchase ever, great quality, great photos and lots of ideas for those who like mexican style houses, worth the price.
 
Informercial  Jul 13, 2008
The photograhy was beautiful, the houses plush and inviting, but the book read as an informercial for the interior design services of "friends" of the authors. I think Carr and others have done just as good of a job or better,and their books are more reasonably priced.

The book was reminiscent of tourist phamplets, beautiul pictures tooting virtues limited to a selected service, in this instance a few "designers." Ideas were limited, and represented a selected "Mexicana Style." One house looked much like another as the architecture was similar or the designer was the same. Not represetitive of Mexican design. It was a pity, I expected more.
 
Timeless inspiration  May 8, 2008
Loved this book. Great inspiration and colourful delights for the eyes and the soul. Makes your heart fly with the possibilities in design, travel, art and texture - just great.
 
For professionals  May 25, 2007
This is a beautiful book, wonderful photography and architecturally very interesting. It is also very heavy, large, and it only shows buildings. I have no room or need for it on my interior design shelves.
 
Unbelievable guide to Mexican design  Feb 18, 2007
I am an interior designer and have always been fascinated by the use of color in Mexico. This book is eye candy for any designer. The pictures are amazing and the photography wonderful. I have picked up this book so many times I have bookmarked almost every page for ideas. Great inspiration!
