To start with – what makes the Mexican interior design stand out is the craftmanship that is visible in each furniture item, its richness of detail. It emphasises traditional patterns and natural materials, but also gracefully incorporates modern items of furniture.  The materials you could use in your interior design in order to give it that desirable arty look is wood, ceramics, glass, metal – all in bold, cheerful colours.

As for the finishes – both matte and polished work here together. If you happen to be one of the lucky people who can enjoy living in a historic apartment, consider leaving the matte, old wooden floors uncovered. Another matte accent may be applied to the walls – it is sponge painting that brings that instantly recognisable bohemian glamour.

When it comes to choosing the perfectly matching patterns for your Mexican inspired design scheme – try looking for irregular, colourful stripes or somewhat glamorous geometric forms. Combine them with some mid-century design pieces and obligatory plants (at least some cacti) – and there you have it – an impeccable Mexican modern.

The colour is the key to success here – pick some unusual shades of orange, pink or blue and see for yourself. You will easily notice how dynamic the room instantly becomes. Another possibility is keeping the walls in cool titanium white (which creates a modern-historic balance for your design) and leaving the reign of colour to the furniture and accessories. Mexican stripes go well with both cold and warm colour schemes.

For the final finishing touches that would go with the hand-made furniture and intriguing colours, I recommend chandeliers or metallic lamps.  They are some form of reminder of the historic Maya influence on Mexican design and definitely take its modern interpretation to a whole new level.
