Rue goes to Mexico City

Rue Mag’s 6th edition was released yesterday. As I flipped though the pages, one particular spread jumped out to me. This spread featured a jewelry designer and pop artist’s amazing home. You see, I was born in Mexico City and really enjoy discovering more about the city.

I digress. The couple consisted of an american girl who fell for a chilango, in other words a mexican man. Their lives and personalities have blended beautifully in the form of decor. And the architecture provides a lovely backdrop to their eclectic array of belongings.

The house has a central courtyard that is typical of mexican residential architecture. I wish more houses in the US were laid out like this because it makes such nice spaces.

This chandelier is one of many in the house, chosen by the jewelry designer who has a fondness for sparkly things.

This dining space showcases the architecture of the old home. Tall ceilings such as these are perfect for the Beauty and the Beast looking chandelier. The colors chosen accentuate the intricate moulding. I love the Persian rugs juxtaposed with this almost cathedral-like space.  And I can’t resist those chunky legs on that wooden table.

I adore the wall color here that looks like coffee with too much milk. It works well with the black moldings.

Is this space romantic or what? The grand canopy bed dressed with shears and the black light fixture sure do create a sexy mood.

These handmade rope chairs are sometimes called Acapulco Chairs. They are all over mexico and every time I see them in a decor mag it makes me smile.

Ay, viva mexico!

But seriously, do you like Rue? What did you think about this issue?
