Leather furniture blends with iron and copper pieces resembling the typical rural estancia (farmhouse). For the tango lover, an antique phonograph brings the sensual music of Buenos Aires to the room. From the wagon wheel table to the steer head over the fireplace, the environment is casual like La Pampa, Argentina. The gas–burning pueblo-style fireplace bears a custom-crafted copper and bronze band with wonderfully colored mineral stone inlays by local artist Thom Wheeler.
The back wall of the main bedroom has been finished in hand carved teak wood perfectly offsetting the colors used to paint the room. The second bedroom has been treated with a hand painted finish that resembles softly filtered sunlight and showcases the floor to ceiling gilded floral stenciling. An antique fireplace enclosure has been custom crafted into an elegant headboard. The main living area features a pueblo-style fireplace embellished with hundreds of iridescent mosaic tiles.
Capture the spirit and culture of our neighbors to the south in this exquisitely designed and decorated casita that captures the vibrancy and drama of Mexico. The two spacious bedrooms in this original suite offer ornately carved wooden king size beds, matching furniture, and two well appointed bathrooms.
The walls and ceiling panels of the first master bedroom have been designed to highlight the custom made stencil work. The adjoining bathroom has color washed walls to replicate the vibrant colors so often seen in Morocco. The shower enclosure was built from an antique gate and each carved panel is a different Moroccan design, hand painted. The second bathroom’s walls were also stenciled in a traditional Moroccan manner with a tiled look.
