I've just been reading the luscious new coffee table book Barefoot Luxury: Mexican Resort Living, from renowned interior designer, Sandra Espinet. Having a window into the luxurious yet relaxed lifestyle of Mexico's exclusive resorts for its discerning wealthy clientele I found quite intriguing.
As recounted in her book, Barefoot Luxury is a way of life and Sandra Espinet’s point of view on design, style and a more conscious way of living. Each of the book's chapters captures the mood of the rooms and outdoor spaces with evocative inspiration boards, weaving a seductive vision of informal elegance, refined luxury and escapism.
Sandra's design sensibility is a sophisticated mix of traditional hand-crafted wood and metal furnishings by local artisans, complementing dynamic contemporary furnishings, fabrics, lighting and art from around the globe. A great source of inspiration, Barefoot Luxury certainly contains elements that can be successfully translated to create your own version of paradise.
