Edna Hayes and Bruce Needleman built their hacienda-style home to withstand the tests of time. They wanted a space that had to be worked (there's no AC, you have to manually open and close shutters each day), was built to be earth friendly and reflect their true love for Mexican homes and decorating styles. Click through the jump to see more of their down to earth made from earth home!

We ran across this home over at The Chronicle where you can read the full article on their space, plus check out a few more photos of their home.
We wanted to show you a few of our favorites of this serene Mexican inspired house. From the large scale artwork in the kitchen to the dark blue tile in the bathroom, we wish we could be their next house guest! Check out their handiwork below.

The Pueblo pots plus the Pendleton and Beacon blankets stacked neatly bring great colors and textures to the room.

The master bath looks as functional as it does comfortable. A great place to relax.

The oversized artwork in the kitchen draws the eye up and makes a smaller space feel grand and warm.

Their rammed earth home is complemented by a hand-built stone driveway.

The couple is obviously happy with their dwelling and there's no reason they shouldn't be beaming! It's a great space and looks like a fantastic place for a siesta!
