Inviting Mexican Interior Design
If you are laid back and prefer things and surroundings that have an old world charm to them, if you love colors and ethnic styles, then Mexican interior design will be the right choice for your home. The Mexican interior design has become popular among homeowners and interior decorators. Mexican interior design has an eclectic feel, mixing rustic wood and wrought iron furnishings with over-the-top, bright, vivid colors. The look incorporates elements from the Spanish missionaries and conquistadors who came to colonize this area of the Americas with elements from the native tribes living in what is now Mexico, including the Aztecs and the Mayans. This blending of Spanish European architecture and native tribal culture led to some of the most beautiful and colorful art and decor found anywhere in the world.
Rich colors and woven textures are key when it comes to Mexican interior design. If you have accent pieces, like pottery or ornate furniture, that you’d like to show off, keep the background of the room simple. Paint your walls a warm color that will serve as a backdrop for your Mexican inspired room. For a bold look, choose an interior paint in a rich earth tone like brick or clay. If the dark walls are too much for you, opt for a warm neutral like sand or taupe. For a look of authenticity, use a faux paint technique to create the look of stucco or adobe. Use rich colors like deep blues, golden yellows, vivid reds and lush greens as accents through your room. For the furniture, Mexican-style furniture has a very rustic appearance.
