Item description for Living in Mexico by Angelika Taschen Rene Stoeltie...
Barbara and Reni Stoeltie, the dynamic writer and photographer duo, have struck gold again -- this time with a truly breathtaking look at Mexico's most remarkable abodes. The Stoelties have traveled far and wide, from Costa Careyes to the Yucatan Peninsula, seeking out homes to surprise, delight, and inspire you. The contrast between Constructivist architect Luis Barragan's home, a restored 16th century hacienda, and traditional Mayan thatched-roof dwellings is telling of the vibrant palette of textures and hues to be found with the pages of this book. This diverse selection of villas, casitas, haciendas, cabanas, and palapas paints a lively and colorful picture of Mexican style.

Spectacular Aug 12, 2004
This is a sensational book. I don't think I have ever seen so many appealing pictures all in one book. The book's greatest accomplishment is that it really captures the spirit of the place, from the charm of the haciendas to the sensuality of the Careyes. Of special note, I don't think anyone has ever done a better job of capturing the visceral and emotional quality of the Careyes villas. Highly recommended.
