¿Dónde está el diseño casero?

sfgirlbybay reader Christine wrote to me seeking out Latin American
design blogs. She's been searching the web like mad for home
decor and design blogs from the beautiful countries to the south.


There's such amazing craftsmanship and architecture there, I have to think
someone is blogging about it. I know of great designers, like Casamidy,
but I couldn't think of any blogs to assist her in her search. Does anyone know
of some sites we can refer her to, and enlighten the rest of us in the process?

I don't but I do have lots of photos from Brazil on Flickr....

The richness of texture and materials blew me away

Also one of the writers on Josh Spear's site is from Sao Paolo. They might have an answer.

Also I know this is not relating but did you know the home tours are coming up. They are so much fun a live 'sneak peek' if you will into several homes a day.

reader Beatriz had tech trouble commenting, but she emailed me with some lovely book ideas:

"I don't know of any blogs devoted to this topic but there are some
great books available about Mexican style loaded with lots of beautiful
pictures. Mexican Style by Peter Aprahamian and In A Mexican Garden by Gina Hyams are two that come to mind."

thanks Beatriz!
