'Yellow Door House', a beach house designed for tourists visiting the beautiful Costa Rican countryside, employs a generally staid color scheme, but the flourishes of chromaticism throughout the complex are a reflection of the natural environment. Though most of the buildings are covered in a relatively plain series of tan and white, the doors and various aspects of the interiors stick out with dazzling splashes of color.

Part of the inspiration for these sudden, saturated hues comes from Costa Rica's habitats. Though much of the Central American landscape is relatively uniform in color, various flowers and wildlife tend to have much brighter colors, popping out in the same way that Yellow Door Houses' design gestures stand out from the rest of the building.
