Southwestern Characteristics

This pueblo revival home designed by Wayne and Kiki Suggs of Classic New Mexico Homes features blue windows to keep the evil spirits out. A traditional rock stem wall borders the adobe courtyard wall, and the room layers are a distinct characteristic of pueblo style, as rooms were added as the family expanded.

Colorful Terrace

An orange tree and geraniums dress up this colorful Mexican-inspired terrace. The warm yellows, reds and blues represent the warm Latin climate. The structure in the background is the top of a tower that contains swimming pool equipment on the lower level. The small arched doorway opens up into a small playhouse for children, and the table surrounded by wrought-iron chairs is the ideal place to enjoy a romantic dinner. Design by Carole Meyer

Our Lady of Guadalupe Shrine

This shrine to Our Lady of Guadalupe is a very common site in New Mexican backyards. It is a calm place, very convenient to the home, for the family to spend time in worship. The adobe structure and decorative tiles are authentic to Mexican design. Design by Classic New Mexico Homes
