Casa De Los Colores

Intimidated by color in your home? Get an eyeful of this vibrant dwelling, where not an inch is untouched by some brilliant hue or another. Using bright colors in interiors can be a scary prospect, but brave souls like Anado McLauchlin and Richard Schultz prove that letting loose your color demon can be one heck of a way to decorate.

McLauchlin, an assemblage artist who makes furniture, decorative objects and jewelry, says of the color palette: When you have rules like only beige or oatmeal, you’re limited to that palette. When you use all the different colors, there are no rules, there is no editor. It’s very freeing.

That it certainly appears to be.

On his website, where you can see his work, Mclauchlin says: Located in the indigenous village of La Cieneguita, 6 km. north of San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, Mexico in the valley of the Rio Laja, Casa las Ranas is an ongoing artistic compound in the making.

In September 2001 we purchased a run down and abandoned 2.5 acre property behind a 200 year old Mexican church. The house had not been lived in for three years and had become the home for whatever could come under the space of the doors or through the broken windows. When we walked in the door and saw all the damage and disrepair we agreed that this was the place we could enliven.

Juicy, don't you think?

Until next time!
