This beautiful courtyard captures everything I love about living in the southwest. The colors are so beautiful. Out here you will see a lot of homes with blue windows, shutters and / or doors. I believe it was once thought, (and perhaps some still believe) that evil spirits are deterred by the beautiful, turquoise color.
The bright desert sunlight pours into the courtyard hitting the vigas and casting interesting shadows on the walls.. Two chile ristras, also for good luck, provide a beautiful pop of red next to the blue door and windows.
A cute pup and has found his happy spot next to a charming, blue Mexican crafted chair with a thin, well-worn coat of light blue paint.
Although I call this a "Santa Fe Courtyard" this scene could be found anywhere from Tucson, Arizona to Santa Barbara, California.
