Well, finally we are nearing the end of our year long home construction project here in Patzcuaro, Mexico. The workers are busy painting, installing light fixtures, doing final tile work, etc. and we are getting soooooo excited.
The exterior of the house is the exact blue color of "Casa Azul," the house lived in by famous Mexican artist Frida Kahlo. There are excellent Casa Azul websites that will show you the color because her house is now a highly respected museum in Coyocan, D.F. Mexico. Comex paint company even has a web page called the colors of Frida Kahlo.
The interior walls are light camel color because we have a lot of very bold artwork which requires a calm negatve space for the canvases. There is also a lot of the tilework in the kitchen, bathrooms, and fountain is made up of brightly painted talevera hand painted tiles with cantera accents.
Our housewarming party is October 27th just before "Dia de Los Mertes,"
which is a huge WORLD FAMOUS event lasting several days here in Colonial Michoacan. You are all invited of course!
I should have some completion photos to share in the next few weeks if it's okay to have bragging rights, lol.
