Check out these 4 ways to add a little south-of-the-border vibe—and don't forget to mix and match!1. Add plants and cacti for a Mexican-Style Boho-Chic vibeNothing says Mexican boho-chic more than earthy pottery with a collection of miniature blooming cacti. It's a low-maintenance centerpiece that adds the perfect pop of color.Mexican Cinco de Mayo style is all about layering!
That said. there are a few things you can do to help ensure that your design remains cohesive. Remember: above all. the space should remain functional. Make a plan for your design before you begin. and do your best to keep function at the forefront. Don't be afraid to edit as you go. If there are ever so many design elements present that it gets difficult to identify the functionality at first glance.
Additionally. be sure to layer your lighting so that the only source of light isn't that single fixture. Think about adding in some ambient light in the form of recessed lighting. plus a few accent fixtures to brighten up any dark corners. Since dining rooms are all about ambiance. you may also want to look into lighting that's able to be put on a dimmer.Add personality with accessories.Don't forget accessories
Then. choose a middling shade (30%) for your secondary color and. finally. use pops of something bolder (10%) as your accent color.Choose dividers that let in light. Divide wiselyWhen designing your studio. you need to divide your space up somehow. That said. not all dividers are created equal. Using too many. or the wrong type. leaves your space feeling choppy. or unnecessarily cut off from the rest of the room.
