But this girl doesn’t discriminate. She loves them ALL. Cinderella, Anna, Elsa, Moana, Tiana, Rapunzel, et ceteraaaa.

But Encanto has a special place in her heart. We have been Encanto obsessed for almost a year now; even had a 3rd birthday celebration Encanto style!

Of course the casita is the main dwelling of the Family Madrigal, and although they’re in Colombia, it had me exploring real life casita home exteriors for no other reason than they’re gorgeous.

Traditional Mexican homes often times are in bright colors, but many modern Mexican or Spanish style homes now use more muted colors such as cream, beige, and soft yellows.

This creates a more elegant and sophisticated look while still maintaining the charm of Mexican architecture.

Natural Materials

These homes often use natural materials like clay tiles, adobe, and stone, adding texture and depth to the exterior.
