With an eclectic interior design that combines local stone with the saguaro cactus and leather armchairs with painstakingly carved wood, this elegant home in Saltillo (Cahuilla de Zaragoza, Mexico) has updated Mexican-American rustic design with symmetrical structures and natural textures.
Leather and wood in living rooms and bedrooms
These materials are used in the main living room, on the ground floor of the property. In this room, Aged Clay compact sintered mineral by XTONE® has been used for the floor to emphasise the organic inspiration for the décor. The fine wood circular table is surrounded by geometric lamps and jute chairs, which create a feeling of warmth in the room.
Inspired by the white, beige and sandy tones of the desert, this area features fine wooden furniture, while its whitewashed walls are made even lighter with large XTONE® Caliza tiles. The same colour range has been used for the exterior with the Harlem Acero collection, in combination with stone columns.
On the upper floor are the main bedrooms and bathrooms, where wood plays a special role. In a rest area leading to the bedrooms, the Chester leather armchairs echo the style of the wooden walls and the high ceiling, from which hangs a lamp in the form of a deer's antler, creating a balanced contrast with the PAR-KER® ceramic parquet by PORCELANOSA .
In the bedrooms, bare stone walls have been combined with cotton fabrics and Linkfloor Authentic Clear wood-look vinyl flooring by L'Antic Colonial. The fusion between brown, beige and black tones also predominates in the bathroom, with a Wood Feel three-dimensional wood mosaic by L'Antic Colonial framing the geometric bathtub and rectangular window. Wood also shapes the area round the mirror with a Wood Modul mosaic by L'Antic Colonial. The uneven rectangular blocks create the effect of movement on the wall, like the pieces in a Jenga tower.
This is a house that turns traditional Mexican design into a cutting edge project.
