Chandeliers

Chandeliers are a great way to add light and transform any space. I love to use them like art and make them a focal point of any room. Whether you have a rustic chandelier or a spectacularly elegant one, they can add a lot of pizzazz. 

This antique chandelier from Nanette Lepore's house adds extra pop to her already stylish and eclectic abode.

"Lets go to Ibiza, Spain"

Nestled in the Mediterranean Sea, off the coast of Spain, Ibiza is a stunningly gorgeous island paradise. Known for its fiesta scene and glamorous hippie style, the island boasts a perfect blend of party and peaceful. 

Many of the homes on the island have a rustic style with white stucco walls and contrasting dark wood beams and furniture. The outdoor living space embraces the surround landscape and perfect weather, providing a sense of comfort and style. The look is clean and simple- perfect for island life.

Estilo Hacienda

San Miguel de Allende, Mexico

San Miguel de Allende, Mexico

Hacienda style is as much a part of California architecture and décor as it is in Central and South America. True to its roots, the style is often expressed by white stucco walls and floors that alternate between ebony-stained wood and terra cotta tiles. The striking contrast is perfect for unique folk art and textiles. 

These pictures below boast a unique Mexican hacienda 21st century style without compromising their original charm. The soaring ceilings with exposed rafters, brightly colored walls and colorful floor tiles represent the rustic simplicity of the style. Rustic furniture and rod iron light fixtures finishes the look to give it an original hacienda vibe. 

Hacienda San Angel, Mexico

Like the climate where they were originally built, these design inspirations boast warmth and passion. Hacienda style is one of my favorites that can be done subtly or with extreme flair.

La Casa Azul- Frida Kahlo

Frida Kahlo

"La Casa Azul"

Frida Kahlo is revered as one of the most influential artists of the 21st century.  The acclaimed artist is as well known for her art as her tumultuous relationship with Diego Rivera which is depicted in all of her art through pain, passion and intensely bright colors. Her iconic style has had an everlasting impact on the design world and still thrives today in homes and in fashion.

La Casa Azul, Mexico City

While her house, "La Casa Azul",  was built by her father before her birth, it still sits today filled with mementos and personal treasures depicting her life with Diego and their leftist international circle of friends.

The shocking cobalt blue walls of the house represents her extreme sadness as she spent hours doing self portraits while recovering from a severe bus accident. Like Frida, the house exhibits her passion and personality.

While you may not paint your house bright blue, you can still pay tribute to Frida in your home through her bohemian baroque style and her love of roses. Here are some ways to give your space a bohemian vibe and make it relevant.

“Hay algunos que nacen con estrella y otros estrellados, y aunque tú no lo quieras creer, yo soy de las estrelladísimas…” Frida Kahlo
