Anchored in the rural landscape of Mexico, these extraordinary buildings, reminiscent of Le Corbusier and the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, inspire today’s urban creatives in need of light and color.

Warm colours, such as vermilion red and fuchsia pink, awaken the cold ones (green and blue) and give a new dimension to objects. These associations have been palpable for a few years now in the publications of the most specialised press and fast fashion brands, which have made them their points of reference for their collections.

From clothing to interior design, these colours mix, awaken and form happy trios. Three colours are combined to open up new areas in small spaces or to give warmth to large areas. An assumed make-up effect, which is above all sunny.
