Nothing better to start the weekend than browsing through the joyful color palette at Casa Hoyos located in San Miguel de Allende (Mexico). A seed and grain trader was transformed into this boutique hotel that works with local designers and artisans to reflect local taste and skills.
Casa Hoyos is a reinterpretation of the colonial houses respecting the materials and vegetable palette of the region. One of the core features of local designer Andrés Gutierrez is the bath tile whose blocks of pastel colors and black borders were duplicated for the interior edges of the balconies in Casa Hoyos.
These pink and delineated edges also represent snake bellies, an element that was used on several occasions in the project after abstracting it from the heraldic coat of arms of the Hoyos surname. Also, long corridor walls covered in grids of bright mustard tiles resemble the skeleton of a corn plant, evoking a past history of grain exchange.
