Maximum Mexican: Bring the fiesta home this summer
Published 26/06/2016 | 02:30
Beautiful embellishment and embroidery are the highlight of the Mexican trend, with detailing such as pom poms and beading featuring across the look. If you prefer a more serene surrounding, then this may not be the right style for you! The colour palette includes rich tones and vibrant shades of warm and cold colours.
Old sideboard and cabinet handles can easily be replaced with vibrant hand-painted knobs such as these offerings from Marks & Spencer. They are a neat source of themed beauty, perfect for adding that splash of Mexican spice to your interiors without overwhelming the space.
