Join us on a tour of the San Miguel de Allende house of Jorge Almada and Anne-Marie Midy for a lesson in color theory.
We've been followers of Casamidy from the start (the furniture/design firm founded by husband/wife team Jorge Almada and Anne-Marie Midy); here's how they approach color: "We believe that every home or space will accept or reject certain colors," Jorge says. "It's important to study how sunlight reacts within the interiors at difference times of the day. Anne-Marie studied color theory in RISD, and I would roll my eyes when she would go on about how a neutral, earthen color had too much blue or red, until i saw how different a beige, white, or taupe could be. Our home in San Miguel is a persistent source of inspiration, and we are continually making adjustments to the interiors."
