How To Create A Dining Room With A Mexican Theme

Blog

If you are wanting to decorate a new dining room with a Mexican theme, or if you're using this theme when redecorating your present dining room, here are some ideas that may inspire you to design something unique and beautiful.

The Walls - Think of using bright colors that will give a festive feeling to the room.

  • Bright pink, turquoise or yellow are all good choices, especially because they will go with many of the other colors you select for your Mexican decor.
  • If you'd rather go with a light color, eggshell white, pale blue or pale yellow are all some of the colors you might consider. Adding stencils around the top of the room would add some drama. Some stencils that would be great are flowers, birds, and Mexican baskets.
  • Would you rather go with wallpaper? If so, consider wallpaper that has cactus, vegetables, chiles or bright stripes in the design.
  • Another idea is to faux paint your walls to make them look like leather. If you don't feel like you can do the job yourself, your paint store may have names of individuals who will do the job for you.

The Furniture - Would you rather have a rustic look or a contemporary one?

  • If you want a traditional, rustic look, consider heavy wood for your dining room furniture.
  • For a more contemporary look, a wrought iron table with a glass top would be a good choice.
  • Another idea is to buy unfinished wooden furniture and to paint it the color of your choice.
  • As you select your furniture, consider a side board with Mexican tile as part of the design.

The Decor - As you purchase decorative pieces for your dining room, think about selecting colorful items. 

  • One unique touch would be to hang small pinatas from the ceiling or to use them as the centerpiece on your dining room table.
  • Hand painted clay birds are another idea, especially if you pair them with colorful paper flowers. 
  • Think about framing posters or large pictures from cities like Cuernavaca, Guadalajara, Mexico City, Monterrey and San Miguel de Allende.
  • Talavera tiles with intricate designs in them would also be great on the walls.

Consider adding a corner hutch to your Mexican dining room. This would be a great way to display things like corn husk dancing dolls from Jalisco, Mexican cookbooks, and dishes or pottery with a Mexican look.
