Antigua’s color palette: zapote


Wood Window works, originally uploaded by rudygiron.

The wall’s zapote color takes its name from the fruit Mammea americana, known here as zapote (click to see it) and zapote mamey in Mexico. It is a dark salmon color. Have I mentioned yet that Guatemala is great place to eat all kinds of fruits and vegetables?

After looking at the great workmanship in all those windows and doors, I have decided to do a window and door series later on.

  • Your windows look incredibly good. I like zapote or mamey color (I have try Mamey many times when I was in Cuba, one of the best fruits for me. They call zapote to another smaller fruit with a similar taste and seed or nut. So I enjoyed your window and it brought back memories too, thanks!

  • Love this orangey color and your color series!

  • Beautiful windows, beautiful color!
