Home Interior. Catemaco, Veracruz, Mexico

Home Interior Catemaco Veracruz Mexico

The Home rooms designs project included exterior and Interior Design.

Home Rooms Designs Catemaco Veracruz Mexico. Located at a 10 acre property estate on the Catemaco Lagoon waterfront in Veracruz, Mexico. We worked on this project as the second project for a repeat client. The Architecture is a 1970’s modern layout based on an unusual hexagonal floor plan. While it had some recent interior work done before as well. The estate included swimming pool, tennis and boat dock, and is surrounded by a Cigar Tobacco growing jungle.

We did the motor court, also a fountain and porch glass canopy entrance and modified the entrances to the house. In the interiors we designed the Foyer,  the dining room and the Master Bedroom and Bath, as well as most of the bathrooms in the house.  While for other rooms complementary furniture and accessories. The dining room had direct access to the motor court, while the kitchen didn’t. So we modified the layout and simultaneously rounded the dining room wall.

Rain is very heavy in the area and we provided the entrances with an extended Glass Canopy. While it sits on Crema Maya Columns and has a pediment with an Oculus. A parapet was designed to sit on top of the glass and Faux or hint only so you could see through though in classic lines and shapes.


Exterior Teak matching doors from Forms & Surfaces were provided for both main entrance to foyer and kitchen exterior entrance. The foyer includes painting by Claus Eben, Marin California,  and bronze sculpture over table by Ramiz Barquet a very well know Mexico City and Puerto Vallarta Lebanese-Mexican born artist now deceased. The Eben painting resembled a hill in the area, while it was painted by a German Artist in California, who had never been there. All magic this happened.

Home rooms designs. Dining room and Master Bath.

We curved the dining room to provide it more privacy and concentrate on the view of the lagoon. Commissioned Italian mythical garden mural for the dining room and a Dolphin for the master Bath, by Carlo Marchiori, Calistoga, Napa Valley, California. Snow White Thasos marble floor  with Giallo Siena yellow marble keys throughout the house. Giallo or yellow Siena marble was also used for the master bathroom, and home consoles.

The Master Suite had a large Bath were we did an 8’x10’ vanity mirror framed in the same Siena Yellow marble, Niagara lapidary faucets and backlit amber glass sinks. Birdseye maple veneers. The tapered makeup table  conceals all kinds of makeup features. The master bathroom has a Japanese characterless screen and we commissioned a Japanese artist in San Francisco to add some characters to it.


*We regret snap shots only at this time as this is a remote location.
