Frida Kahlo is a very talked about figure in the world of politics and feminism, but not only is she still an inspiration to many women out there many years after her passing, she also greatly inspires the creative industry with her signature mexican florals. The mexicana trend involves a range of flowers found on Mexican land, in bright, powerful colours; celebrating the wonders of life.
Each of our new murals feature layered, textured Mexican rose designs that reflect the style of ceremonial paper flowers and embroidered floral huipils. Designed with striking block colour backdrops, these wallpapers are truly iconic, just as Frida Kahlo herself. They are the perfect designs to use as a feature wall in a space that is in real need of a pop of colour and a boost of festiveness.
Frida Kahlo was known to fill her home with Mexican folk art and bright colours – such as her yellow kitchen which was full of colourful ceramics. Let Frida’s use of bold, cheerful colour in her fashion and interiors inspire a takeover of Mexicana style in your own home – carrying on the spirit of La Casa Azul.
Combining bold colours with iconic pieces of furniture is the most impactful way of utilising these mural designs. Remembering to keep a ‘red thread’ throughout your space in order to tie everything together is essential however, in achieving an effective maximalist feel.
We have styled these wonderfully colourful murals in collaboration with Rose & Grey and Ercol furniture, choosing pieces of furniture that merit the bright joyous characters of the murals and compliment the accents of colour in the floral illustrations contained within the designs.
Let Frida’s use of bold, cheerful colours and patterns inspire you to decorate your home with this beautiful Mexican trend.
