What Houzz contributors are saying:

Guillermo, a chef, usually spends his time preparing French cuisine at Boulevardier in Dallas. At home he keeps it simple with traditional dishes for Dia de los Muertos. "If we're lucky his mama will make us some homemade tortillas," says Melissa.
“My decorating philosophy is, if it catches my eye and makes me smile, I want it around me.” — homeowner Melissa Love Tristan, as told to Sarah GreenmanThis is a sentiment we should all keep in mind when decorating our homes. I loved learning more about Dia de los Muertos, and seeing that what I had incorrectly thought of as a macabre holiday could lead to a house filled with exuberance and fond memories. The story is also full of wonderful tips from the homeowner about making spaces where young children feel happy and thrive. Full story: My Houzz: A Home Comes Alive With Day of the Dead Decor
