A true southwest Mexican rustic home decor can only be achieved by selecting colors wisely. Homeowners in Mexico love bold colors and are not afraid to use them! In fact, most Mexican decor photos you'll see when browsing the Web will illustrate splashes of bright colors in every room. From the wall paint to the floor tiles and everything in between, southwestern decor will certainly brighten your imagination.

Let's Start with Wall Paint

Wall paint Mexican style can be a variety of colors. Many start with a subtle creamy tan or pale yellow and then add color from there with accessories, flooring, wall paintings, etc. If you're a little more bold than that, consider painting your walls bright colors such as red, orange, green or blue. Just make sure it will match your floor colors and furnishings before selecting a color. You can also texture the paint to make your walls look similar to the stonewall homes of Mexico. If you're not sure how to do this, contact a professional painter and ask about various painting styles to get the look you desire.


From plain wooden floors to fancy tile, your floor colors and patterns can also enhance your southwest decor. Even if your floors are plain with no specific color or pattern, you can accent them with rustic decor rugs. There are thousands of colorful Mexican style rugs to choose from so you can easily match them to your other items. If you're remodeling or building a room from the ground up, consider installing southwestern style floor tiles. You can go for colorful tile patterns to set the mood and then paint your walls to match.

Furnishings and Decorations

Furniture can be colors such as red, blue, green, orange, brown, yellow or creamy white. You can also purchase authentic equipal furniture online at affordable prices.

For decorations in the living area and bedrooms, add colorful lamps, magazine stands, wall paintings, rustic sconce light covers, Mexican tin mirrors, colorful pillows and other items. Add a few green houseplants as a finishing touch. In the kitchen, you can decorate shelves or a hutch with Mexican glassware such as margarita glasses. Blue rim drinking glasses, colorful plates, special overhead lighting and other kitchen accessories can transform your kitchen into a festive room. Talavera pottery can be added to any room, either on tables or on the floor.
