10 Ways to Bring Mexico Into the Home

FacebookTwitterGoogle+TumblrPinterest

With Cinco de Mayo only a few days away, I thought it would be fun to celebrate early with these home decor ideas for bringing Mexico into the home. Mexico is one of my favorite travel destinations, and each time I go there I come back with arms full of goodies. Right now I have more serapes than I know what to do with, but I just can’t get over those color combinations.

Check out items that are straight from the beautiful country, and others that are inspired by the Mexican culture. Use a few Mexican baskets or vases to add color to rooms in the house. Consider doing something a little more permanent add Mexican tiles to the stairs.
