Today, we are headed to Mexico, where sunny colors and gorgeous wood carvings depict the joy and spirit of the Mexican people.
The niches in this space are to die for. A bed recessed in a niche not only anchors a room but it sets a tone of regality. Again, love the colors and the architectural elements about the artwork and door.
Love the simplicity of this space; it is so peaceful and soothing. The painted wood door frames and bench have the wear and tear that tones down the formality of the space. Often we try to achieve this worn look on purpose (aka distressing) but I am pretty sure this one occurred naturally.
Heavy, carved woods are one of my favorites - that door is stunning against that all white wall. The bulkiness of the furniture is enough to anchor the space and create a fullness and warmth with little furniture.
Chandeliers and a gorgeous fireplace. Yes, please.
The overall look of Mexico style is simple and bare. It is the combination of all the colors, detailed carvings and architectural elements that create the complexity and warmth.
