In honor of Cinco de Mayo tomorrow, I thought I’d go on a hunt for chic mexican-inspired decor.  Of course, the key to keeping things stylish is to step beyond the literal (no mexican wrestling masks please).  The non-literal version of Mexican decor includes everything from ancient Aztec art, to traditional Spanish designs, to modern southwestern style.  Vibrant colors, curved wrought iron and clay pottery are just a few design elements that come to mind.

Here are a few picks that work for a Cinco de Mayo fiesta space or an every day contemporary-eclectic room.

Planter – La Fuente Imports

Floor/Bath Mat – Anthropologie

Candle Wall Sconce – Hobby Lobby

Lamp – Zinc Door

Aztec Plaque – Overstock

Embroidered Pillow – Cost Plus World Market

Any mexican-inspired pieces you’re thinking of incorporating into your space?  You can count me in for the Anthropologie mat and the Aztec plaque!
