Delightful Design: Spanish Colonial Update

Every once in a while I like to go old school rustic. Old school Spanish Colonial rustic. This month's Lonny featured the fabulous colonial home of Ariane Dutzi, one time international fashion correspondent and current philanthropic visionaire behind Dutzi Designs. Situated in a tiny village along the Yucatan coast, this four-hundred year old home is fashioned from traditional rough hewn limestone and was once a series of small apartments. 

Removing some of these interior walls and leaving several rooms exposed to the interior courtyard has turned this home into a palace among the elements. Neutral muted colors and locally hand crafted furnishings helps Ariane find harmony with all the vibrant colors of nature and architecture surrounding her oasis. She does allow in a few of her favorite turquoise and pinks in the form of fresh flowers, throws and decorative pillows which can be swapped out on a dime.
