Rustic Mexican Retreat
Vancouver artist Patricia Larsen uses neutral tones and organic textures to great effect.
South of the Tropic of Cancer, Larsen found a home in Baja, Mexico. In 2008 she had this simple, 1,300-square-foot one-bedroom concrete-block-and-plaster-home built. The rustic home blends seamlessly with its stunning surroundings — the Sierra la Laguna mountains, the Pacific Ocean in the distance and miles of desert. An unfinished table, earthenware on the shelves and hanging dried herbs give the room a soft, natural feel.
