I spent some of December in Mexico City getting ideas for design projects I've been doing in Mexico recently. The city was phenomenal. One of the most noticeable things was the amount of vibrant color you see in every direction. Buildings are painted with shades we probably don't sell at Benjamin Moore and fabrics, baskets, gifts and even the Christmas trees were dyed bright colors. I'm not sure where that originated, but I suspect perhaps the earth provided more natural pigments in Mexico and Central America than in other places. But perhaps it's because the people themselves are so vibrant. Whatever the reason, it was truly inspiring. Below are just a few of the photos that demonstrate the color saturation you just don't see anywhere else.
