Private townhome on Calle 68, Colonia Centro, Mérida

 
This unique home in the heart of Mérida’s historic district presented an opportunity for a dramatic and eclectic – even over-the-top – approach to its interior design. The beautifully restored Mérida home, recently completed by Arquitecto Roger Gonzales, lent itself to a bold statement. The program from the new owners – people who travel the world for business and for fun, and who have several homes on different continents – was to personalize the home and make it truly their own, a place for vacationing and for entertaining their jet-setting friends.
 
Worldstudio International partner, Keith Heitke, decided that to achieve this it would be necessary to bring in all new furnishings from the best sources, and to mix and match styles keeping an eye to scale, imagination, and luxury. The seemingly disparate elements, each with its own point of view, come together like a party populated with fabulous and interesting people – all different, but each adding a fun and unique element to the whole.
 

An Italian furniture maker with a showroom in Mérida set the tone with beautifully whitewashed wood pieces upholstered in creamy-white hand-stitched leather. A local importer of Chinese furniture and artwork supplied the huge and colorful credenza in the salon as well as the drinks cabinet in the dining room. A new store specializing in traditional hand-made Spanish furniture and high quality name brand furniture and fabrics provided many furnishings and large-scale items throughout the house. Finally, Heitke designed several unique pieces, which were custom manufactured by local craftsmen in Mérida.

The result is just what the new owners had in mind: a one-of-a-kind townhouse in a bustling city, but with a sunny disposition and a tropical outlook as well.
