4) A rustic 18th c. hacienda overflows with folk art and antiques

Near Parque Juarez, in Casa de Liza B&B, my cozy corner suite is absolutely crammed with Mexican #folkart and #antiques, while orange floral-painted bookshelves overflow with dozens of books on #Mexican, #Spanish and #Moroccan design and Mexico guidebooks. 

A chest depicts the culture clash of #Mexico: a pale European-looking man playing a stringed instrument serenades a dark-skinned woman clad in a long vivid Mexican-style dress, surrounded by mountains and banana trees. 

A chair is shaped like a butterfly, and Mexican tiles adorn my bathroom in this former 18th-century #hacienda, whose rooms are dispersed in small terra cotta-colored buildings amid patios and gardens.

In sharp contrast, contemporary art by mostly #LatinAmerica artists is on display at Hotel Matilda, a new luxury #boutiquehotel whose arrestingly hip vibe reminds me of W Hotels I've seen.

Its spin on Mexican tiles is an installation of a dozen digital screens in varied patterns projected on the wall behind the white lobby's front desk, by #Mexican #artist Nacho Rodriguez Bach.
