Original Gooseneck Light Graces Front Door of Renovated Yucatan Home

When Wes first saw his future home in Merida, a 500-year-old city on Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula, no one would have blamed him if he had completely leveled the place and built something new. But Wes saw the character of what he lovingly calls “the ruin” and transformed it into a stylish, functional, and inviting space with a definitive nod to its history.

Nautical Wall Sconces Add Industrial, Coastal Style to Any Space

Climbing a lighthouse should be on everyone’s bucket list.
