Vibrant Colored Interior Decor: Festive Inspiration for Your Cinco De Mayo Celebration!

April is quickly coming to an end and I think we are all ready for the sunshine and festivities that come with May. Each year on May 5th, Americans honor Mexican heritage and culture through fun celebrations with delicious food, drinks and music, so why not incorporate it into your decor as well?! Whether your hosting a party or going out this year, these Cinco de Mayo style interiors are sure to spark some ideas for bringing touches of Mexico into your home for the holiday or year-round! I am going to show you some affordable and great ways to get inspiration for bringing Cinco de Mayo into your interiors!  

Eat Color - Use Floral Dishes For Festive Flair

For those of you hosting a party and in need of a table setting, consider mixing a variety of patterns from floral to geometric shapes for a fun,  festive look! This little cactus party favor couldn't be any more adorable and affordable.

Spice Up A Contemporary Room With Bold Hues and Pattern

Bringing color in at eye, mid and floor level is a designer tip for balancing and adding interest to a room. The bright striped pillows and ziggurat rug add a touch of mexican culture to this otherwise plain contemporary bedroom!

Artwork That Speaks Louder Than Words

Artwork is a perfect solution for warming up a blank white wall. It's also a great way to add personality to a room like this piece that features the colors of the mexican flag.

Viva La Vida In Color - Splash Color On The Wall

Leave a lasting impression on your guests with a bold accent wall and eclectic decor. This room looks party ready but could be toned down with a neutral table setting and fewer accessories.

Handcrafted Accents Add A Cultural Touch

Throws are great to switch out as the seasons change for a fresh look. Brighten up a room for spring with a mexican blanket such as this one!

Take A Tropical Trip In Your Backyard

Turn your patio into a private getaway to Mexico that you can enjoy year round with patterned pillows and wicker furniture.
