¡Hola! i have returned! and oh what a wonderful trip to tulum it was. i can’t wait to share all of it with you, but suffice it to say, i will be returning and often, and i was utterly inspired by tulum in a way i couldn’t have imagined. i’ve been to mexico before, but no city has inspired me like tulum. there’s something quite magical about the light and the colors there that’s hard to describe. but i’ll do my best — it’s almost ethereal, delicate and pale. the turquoise water and almost lavender-colored sky paired with white-white sand and swaying coconut palms is breathtaking. but much more on that, and a full tour of my travels there soon.

but one of the places that inspired me endlessly was coqui coqui — a charming boutique hotel, cafe, spa and perfumeria right on the beach. man, oh man, did they get it right. i felt like i could live there, and i’m going to aim to do just that — but in my own home. i got so much inspiration from coqui coqui for my new decor, i am just itching to get started! i loved all the natural textures paired with black-blue hues (especially that hammock – i need that color, and am considering dip-dying a natural cotton weave i bought while in town). the vibe was spot-on perfect — relaxed and beachy, but very sophisticated, celebrating the colonial architecture of Yucatan. i found endless inspiration for my backyard patio, and my interiors. i’ll share more ideas on how to ‘get the look’ shortly!

  1. So glad you enjoyed beautiful Mexico and am looking forward to seeing the rest of the photos and info about the trip. I am constantly amazed at the the creativity and inspiration around so many corners in that complex and fascinating country. Viva Mexico!

  2. I just wanted to tell you I bought you’re amazing book on Amazon, (I clicked where it showed on your site, I felt bad you didn’t get all the money! First of all, part of my family lives in the East Bay area.The book brings so many memories back as my dad and I loved going into the city, snooping around and having wonderful days together. He died December 17th, but my love for the city will never die. I wish we had the ability to have more time to wonder. I’d love to take a quiet trip by myself, but I’m not ready. I’d love to live there, but the supervisors are nuts!!! My brother was on the Bay Bridge for that incredible earthquake, my husband suggested a long walk off a short pier, than God there are a lot! Congratulations on such a beautiful book, I’ll treasure it!

  3. Yes! We visited Tulum the same week you did and were equally pampered and sated with color, texture and tastes. Such a place. We bought perfume, cologne and hair care products at Coqui Coqui (my choice was the signature orange blossom scent) and skin care goods at Lolita Lolita. Thanks for the updates–even through the challenges of spotty wi-fi!

      • Huge question. Do you remember how much their hammocks were and what material they’re made out of?? I’m obsessed.

      • I didn’t see prices on them when I was there, but they are a fairly expensive shop so I’m guessing they may be on the high end. They’re opening an online shop soon and if you go to their site you can sign up to be notified when it opens. I’m not sure of the fabric either, sorry!
