La Casa Azul // Coyoacán, Mexico City

La Casa Azul was the birthplace, home and death place for the Mexican artist, Frida Kahlo. She also lived and worked there with her husband Diego Rivera for a number of years. I had the opportunity to visit last week with my new friends Tania and Margaux.

The home is absolutely wonderful, featuring bright colors and lots of light filled rooms, especially in the studio. I had so much fun capturing little vignettes and playing in Kahlo’s environment. It made me feel creative and inspired. I hope to have a home like it one day!!
