About Casa Duhagón
Mariana Postlethwaite realized she had a passion for art at age 13, diving headfirst into creative activities such as drawing, painting and ceramics. Since her father was an engineer and owned a construction company, she decided to study architecture before adding her masters in interior design to her repertoire. She went on to found the Baja-based interior design studio Casa Duhagón eleven years ago, completing high-end eclectic and bohemian-style residential projects in Ensenada, Valle de Guadalupe, Guadalajara, Mexico City, San Diego, Mexicali and Tijuana. Most recently, Casa Duhagón has extended its creative approach to include commercial design work.
