Tulum Bound

Okay I know we need the rain, but between storms I have been dreaming of my next getaway.  And though some may say it is already passé… I see Tulum in my immediate future.

As a design buff I cannot resist this chic escape where the beach meets the jungle, and the décor is a mix of modernism and historic influences.  This combination of minimalism with a focus on natural surroundings is appealing in any interior and we can take away some great design tips from our neighbors to the south.

The cutting edge architecture in Tulum is a blend of sustainability and local construction techniques.

The interiors are simple and effortless, but loaded with texture and warm colors

Art and culture are an integral part of the Tulum community.  The exhibit Configurations is currently at the IK Lab in the ecological resort Azulik.

Equipale chairs, a woven pendant and palm leaves is all you need.
