In honor of Cinco de Mayo, I’m sharing one of my favorite houses in Mexico — El Mirador House. Located in Valle de Bravo, a popular vacation spot just two hours southwest of Mexico City, El Mirador is a 5,000 square foot home by CC Arquitectos.

Happy Monday! Lately, I’ve been inspired to mix influences from South Texas and Mexico into my interiors. It may be due to my recent trip to my hometown on the border of Texas and Mexico but what ever the reason, I love the look! Below, I’ve put together my favorite elements for a very South Texas living room.

I love using hurricanes, especially these simple, yet modern, ones above from Crate & Barrel.

I also love to use photography and found this wonderful photograph from Parish Photo of a Charreada (Mexican Rodeo) in San Antonio, TX.

 From beautiful bowls and cutting boards, to plants & pottery, there are some fabulous ways to organize your countertop clutter and add style at the same time. Below, are some of my favorite examples.

I love how Heather Bullard stacks her collection of cutting boards and displays her silverware & linen napkins in pottery and platters.

Adding a painting or piece of artwork can add a touch of personality, as well as connect the kitchen to the rest of the home.

Jean Stoffer’s use of plants in the kitchen brings a lovely polished greenhouse feel to it — very nice!

A fitting subject for my first post for 2018! The entry is the first room guest see, therefore, the perfect place to give them a preview of the what the rest of the home will offer.

By selecting oversized pendants and eye-catching rugs the entry can be the perfect room to make a statement.

This past summer in Mallorca I discovered the gorgeous design firm called Moredesign while reading the magazine, Ideas y Tendencies Interiors.

Founded by Oro del Negro and Manuel Villanueva, they offer services in architecture, design and landscaping.

There is an ease and elegance about the work of Moredesign — it’s unpretentious yet sophisticated. Love it!

If you’re like me you’ve already sent out your Christmas cards, you’ve shopped for everyone and your home is full of Christmas Cheer — HAHA! If I’m being totally honest, as of this moment, I still have Thanksgiving decorations up. So, today I’m listing my top 5 go-to websites to help get us in the Christmas spirit!

1.I love this shop, Hillenmeyer Christmas Shop in Lexington, Kentucky. They offer gorgeous trees, garlands, wreaths and a barn full of animals that kids can pet and enjoy.

2. Home decor magazines like Atlanta Homes, Southern Living and Veranda are also great sources!

4. I also recommend visiting your local garden store to see what kind of gorgeous seasonal products they have in stock. Some of my favorites are Thompson & Hanson in Houston, TX, Petersham Nurseries in London and Rolling Greens here in Los Angeles.

5. Also, One Kings Lane, has wonderful decor for your tree, mantel and table this holiday season.
