Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Hidden in idyllic isolation, the haciendas of Old Mexico have long struck a romantic chord with their rich mix of myth, history, and impressive architecture. Today, these once-abandoned treasures have surfaced in contemporary design, sparking widespread interest in their restoration. Travel behind the scenes with authors Karen Witynski and Joe P. Carr as they open the doors to Mexico's remote country estates and reveal innovative interiors, artifacts, and antiques that echo the hacienda's original architectural splendor. Inside, ancient stone walls and arcaded portals are at home with modern art and colonial antiques. Cobbled courtyards and grand salons come alive with a spirited mix of once-forgotten objects and contemporary furniture. Originally dedicated to coffee, sugar, mescal, henequen, and wheat production, Old World haciendas have been transformed into myriad new roles--as country homes for artists, filmmakers, equestrians, and business entrepreneurs as well as eco-conscious resorts, art centers, riding schools, restaurants, and twenty-first-century workspaces. The hacienda lives on in the familiar use of natural materials and in the pared-down beauty of its interiors. Designers and architects have found inspiration in the visual culture of the hacienda and have integrated Mexican elements into new homes on both sides of the border. The New Hacienda offers a rich entrance to the world of Mexico's country estates and their influence on contemporary design.

This is a fantastic book -- a must-read for anyone interested in Mexican architecture, design, or an overview of current trends in innovative and adaptive reuse of classic haciendas. Beautifully illustrated and well written, THE NEW HACIENDA is recommended for anyone with a passion for Mexico.

Karen Witynski and Joe Carr have done the impossible and have created, a beautiful follow-up to Mexican Country Style. The inviting cover pulls you into each chapter and the spectactular photography demands you turn every page slowly and take in the narrative as it describes hacienda lifestyles. You will return to this book again and again.

The New Hacienda is a beautiful and inspiring book for anyone who loves Mexico's art, design, and hacienda-style culture. From traditional architectural elements to colonial antiques, the book reveals many rich details for those seeking ideas and inspiration in creating a hacienda-style home of their own. I found the book's Resource section especially helpful for contacting design sources here in the states. Also, after writing the authors at their site I found out that they have restored a colonial hacienda in the Yucatan which is now available as a vacation rental and Mexican Design Center.

22 of 25 people found the following review helpful By Roger Smith on August 1, 2001
Format: Hardcover
This book has lots of beautiful pictures but hardly enough of true haciendas. It is lacking originality and exterior/interior photos of the haciendas themselves. Text content is "ok" but repetitive and sounds like that from other books. Very overpriced for what it presents. The authors mention that they are building their own "new" hacienda. If they have such a true love for the old ones why didn't they rescue one from ruin??? Very commercial in my opinion.

Format: Hardcover
This book not only gives you a history lesson on how Hacienda life was like in the past, but it also shows how Haciendas are working today, and how they have influenced American living. Like the first book, Mexican Country Style, they have included beautiful pictures that make you feel like you are there. I highly recommend this book.

The New Hacienda garnered the prestigious La Pluma de Plata (Silver Pen) Award from Mexico's Ministry of Tourism. Presented to authors Witynski and Carr by Mexican President Ernesto Zedillo, the award is a testament to the book's distinctive celebration of Mexico's restored haciendas.

"Mexican Country Style" and "The New Hacienda"
Both of these books are helpful in understanding the reinterpretation of Mexico's indigenous styles and architecture, in the latter case, particularly the transformations that haciendas surviving the land reforms have undergone in recent years...In "The New Hacienda", colonial antiques and historic objects are shown intermingled with contemporary notions of art and comfort, rendering a visually pleasing balance between old and new. Also included is a guide to Mexican haciendas, which may be visited...Both of these books will thrill anyone with an interest in interior design.
