FIESTA, FOREVER

Interiors expert Marianne Cotterill on why bringing a touch of Mexico to your home is the perfect recipe for summer living

Having been starved of sunshine and socialising for so long, warm, cheerful colours feel like a tonic right now — which might explain why vibrant patterns often inspired by Mexico are in such abundance.

Whether it be the lovely handmade lampshades by Mexican craftspeople at Montes & Clark or the bohemian fisherman’s lamps by Elpelut, placemats, ceramics or floor runners, everything here is about providing a splash of that bright, brash culture. It all adds up to an enchanting atmosphere in the home, so add a bottle of Casamigos and some Serpent Queen hot sauce to your table and enjoy the fun.
