Casa Azul

The pale green paint was flaking off the facade by the time interior renovations were underway. At the back, the walls had been patched after the drainage pipes were buried in the wall. I thought it would be hard to pick a new color from all the incredible hues that are splashed on walls all over Merida.

A few nice shades were tested on the front wall.

















But then I came across this grand house in the Santa Ana neighborhood. I found this shade of aqua blue completely electrifying.

















It happened to be the work of our architects at Estilo - so Victor knew exactly what color it was.

Here it is on our (much less grand) facade and back walls.

Like it?
