Mexican Style Interior Design Takes You Away


peluqueria la bohemia, san juan teotihuacanAre you tired of your home? Do you wish you could move to a different country and start all over again? If you redecorate your home with Traditional Mexican Style Interiors you can make it look like you’ve moved even though you haven’t.

Which room in your house would you most like to create a private get-away in? Would you like to wake up to a Mexican new décor? You can create a new atmosphere for your home without having to move across the world.

Look in decorating magazines or books for ideas. You can also do a search on your favorite search engine online to find other images of Mexican style decorating.

Keep a notebook to hold pictures of rooms, furniture, or accessories that you would like to incorporate into your home. You may also collect paint chips, fabric swatches, and pictures of window treatments that you like.

If you’d like to transform your bedroom you can expect to buy bright colored paints, new bedding, and new curtains. You may also want to find items like sombreros, ponchos, or terra cotta items to draw the room’s look together. Be prepared to purchase new lighting such as wrought iron or punched tin wall sconces depending upon your vision for your room.

You shouldn’t have to spend a large amount of money to change the look of your room. New bedding and new paint color, along with accessories, should do the trick but these don’t have to be expensive. Try to find reversible bed covers that have a Mexican them on one side and a bright, solid color on the other. Mexican artwork isn’t expensive and can create the image you desire.

In lieu of merely painting your bedroom, spread sheet rock putty on your wall to give it texture. Then paint your room, or maybe just the wall your bed is on, bright blue, red, or yellow. If this is too bold for you, use glaze over the paint to tone it down.

Simple is better when it comes to window treatments. You may not even need curtains. In fact, a simple valance or shutters could be all you need. If you prefer more privacy than these would afford, use blinds that you can lower to give you the privacy you desire.

Achieving Mexican style decorating is possible. It may take you a little bit of time and effort, but a new bedroom can be all you need to be whisked away to Mexico without ever leaving your own home.

I am actually quite new to mexican interior decor. So it was extremely helpful for me. But I think mexican designs are strongly influenced by the spanish, not suprishingly as they were under the spanis empire. But aztec and mayan artefacts are importan part of the decor too

Aztec and mayan artefacts look very good!
