Punta Mita Mexico

Our long-time Vancouver client fell for idyllic Punta Mita while on vacation, buying a pied-a-terre before the year was out. Designed by Mexican architects Alfonso López Baz and Javier Calleja, the house was essentially a garden with a roof, so residents would feel like they were outside year-round. As such, the network of open-air pavilions lacked warmth and homeyness. We were brought in to refurnish and bring a sense of cohesion and comfort to the whole home, and we started with the rose-coloured marble flooring as a base point. This coral tone connects indoors with out, and unifies the space.

. Interior palettes took colour cues from the flora and fauna of the property—bright pinks and saturated purples seen in bougainvillea and exotic plants. Furnishings like the synthetic wicker, Patricia Urquiola Plantation-inspired lounge chairs and B&B Italia sofas were chosen to offer luxe comfort as much as to stand up to wet swimsuits. In every indoor-meets-outdoor room, bold colours are at play, but they always support the picture views of jungle garden and the jaw-dropping Pacific. Flexible conversation areas are arranged throughout the house, so that it can become a dream home for a family by day, or the ultimate entertaining space to host their closest 50 friends by night.
