Just a few blocks from the Jardin and main square in the heart of San Miguel Allende, this vacation home for rent in Mexico is a sensory delight of color, meticulous craftsmanship and an innovative approach to modern design.

Featured in numerous books and design magazines, it is part of a portfolio of properties designed by the couple who specialize in creative and inventive ways of interpreting sustainable, contemporary design.
Working with local craftsmen, the duo used colorful polished concrete and custom stone, hand crafted tile and iron work along with an extensive amounts of glass throughout that illuminates the interiors. Organized around a central courtyard, the ground floor living spaces are lofty and bright with a large open plan living room with a fireplace and dining area that flow together with an ancient wooden table at the center that seats up to ten. The fully-equipped kitchen is just steps up from the living areas.
An arch of burgundy columns set against a deep blue wall with sparkling stars opens into the en suite master bedroom with a private garden. Opening out to an ancient pomegranate tree, the master bath features an extraordinary tiled mural in cobalt, ochre, green and burgundy sparkling with droplets of filtered sunlight. A sinuous stairway snakes up to two double bedrooms each with a private balcony and shared covered terrace and bath with skylight views.
Walls are washed with natural minerals in saturated colors of mango, cobalt and soft green with floor to ceiling steel windows bringing light and a sense of indoor/outdoor living into the house.
The courtyard is an oasis of calm with locally quarried slate and river rock patterns, deep burgundy concrete accents, and columns and counters inlaid with glass beads. It’s the heart of the house and the ideal spot for dining at the 200-year-old carpenter’s table, and lounging within its cool tranquil center.
