Mexico

When incorporating Mexican themes into your home, steer clear of clichés and use traditional south-of-the-border patterns in fresh ways. Add a pop of color with folksy Otomi embroidered textiles commonly used in cushions or lampshades. Talavera tiles, a staple in Mexican décor, are now available in playful and modern designs like trendy peacock feather motifs. And, for added pizzazz, introduce Frida Kahlo-esque art into the mix.
