The Yucatan has undergone a remarkable restoration renaissance of late: ancient pyramids now share the dense jungle landscape with revived haciendas, and colonial homes boasting high-beamed ceilings and cool tile floors posture amidst elegant plazas and renovated nineteenth-century mansions. A dazzling photographic journey, Casa Yucatan focuses on architectural elements, water spaces, and open-air living in houses both colonial and contemporary, including haciendas and coastal retreats.
Award-winning authors of the Mexican design series-Mexican Country Style, The New Hacienda, Casa Adobe, and Adobe Details-Karen Witynski and Joe P. Carr are the owners of Texture, an interior design firm and gallery specializing in hacienda style. They have been at the forefront of the Mexican design movement for more than twenty-five years. They divide their time between homes in Austin, Texas, and the Yucatan.
