Modern Mexican interiors is today’s topic! Margaritas, sun, tons of colour – a perfect inspiration mix for creating an interior design scheme. Is there even one person who hasn’t ever dreamt of a holiday in Mexico?
Now you can bring joy and vibrant colours to your own home. Use this advice on creating modern Mexican home decor and feel like a modern Frida, the icon of Mexican artistic Boheme.

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.
And what if you should like to keep your modern room in a more neutral colour scheme and add the Mexican theme in just a few accents? The examples below surely prove that it is possible. And incredibly stylish, if I might add. Mexican, mid-century and industrial? Why not?
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.
Here is one stunning example – SOLEIL from BRABBU – that can surely complete your newly designed Mexican space with some golden solar symbol that was so important in the Maya culture.
Be it just an accent or an entire modern room design – your home could definitely benefit from adding some Mexican inspired design scheme. As someone once said, ‘You don’t have to actually be an artist to live like one’. But yet, isn’t interior design some sort of art? I hope you found this article useful and inspirational for your own home decor and discovered your inner Frida spirit.
