Mid Century Modern Vacation Home in Guatemala

Volcanic mountains, colorful homes and streets full of pattern…

Tucked away in a small village, my friend QK’s mid century modern vacation home is an internationally getaway you have to see!

Her family’s modern country home is filled with eclectic art and native Guatemalan designs. Tastefully designed with a natural exposed kitchen + living room ceiling, featuring an antique cobblestone wall.
