Mexico Inspiration

I love the soft, mottled yellow found on some of the walls at the Hacienda Xcanatun. The yellow is always touched with a bit of black because of the humidity. I think it contrasts nicely with the matte black of the wrought iron work. I also love the way shadows play on the lush garden vegetation. There are also a myriad of colors, some bright and vibrant and others more muted. My yearly visit is always so inspirational!
