We’re constantly inspired by the world around us and, in particular, Mexico. As some of you may or may not know we are of Irish and Mexican descent. That being said it’s safe to say that our heritage has influenced many of our designs. We’re suckers for an amazing decorative tile and a classic terra-cotta finish. With Cinco de Mayo right around the corner we wanted to celebrate by sharing our favorite spots in Mexico and how you can get the look in your own home!
One of our favorite cities in Mexico is Oaxaca. Known for its vibrant colored buildings, delicious food markets and unbeatable art scene. The colors of this city are so inspiring! Oaxaca undoubtedly has a soul of its own! Don’t be deceived by its size because this little city has a big heart and a huge personality!
GET THE LOOK
Paint a door in your home a fun vibrant color.
Go bold with paint colors by accenting a wall in your living room, bathroom or bedroom.
Play with paint colors on the trim of your doors, windows or stairs.
If we were a hotel we would probably be this one. This gorgeous space is filled with stunning decorative tile everywhere you look, simple textiles, colorful accents and breathtaking views!
We love every design element in this hotel and are inspired by Hotel San Cristobal on a daily basis! Is it obvious? HA!
GET THE LOOK
You can never go wrong with a beautiful decorative tile on bathroom floors, backsplashes, fireplaces or stair risers.
Add some clay pendant lights or rattan furniture to bring some natural elements into your space.
Accent pillows are a great way to add a pop of color to any space.
PLANTS PLANTS PLANTS - can’t go wrong with some cacti scattered throughout your space inside and out.
HOTEL TIKI TIKI, TULUM
Close your eyes and imagine yourself laying in a hammock slowly rocking back and forth. Listening to the wind flow through the palm trees outside. It's peaceful and serene. You open your eyes and see lush greenery outside and blue skies reflecting on the pool below. This is the experience of Hotel Tiki Tiki in Tulum. The energy in this space makes you feel like you’ve walked right into a jungle paradise. The décor is simple with modern nods to classic Mexican design.
GET THE LOOK
The color blue calms the soul. Adding blue accents in your furniture or floor tile makes any space feel a bit more serene and spa like.
Low comfortable seating such as a hammock or accent chairs and stools will make the space feel more inviting.
Dark wood accents add a richness to the space.
Breeze block is a great way to divide a space inside or outside while allowing light and air to flow through. Keep in mind breeze block is best in space where you are exposed to the elements.
We could go on and on about the inspiration we find in and throughout Mexico. But for now we hope this post inspires you to be a little bolder with color and texture in your home! Take risks but stay true to who YOU are. This is us and we are proud to celebrate and share it!
Happy Cinco de Mayo!
Love, The Sisters
