Second home in Mexico!! eclectic-living-room

Second home in Mexico!!

This is the great room in our home in central Mexico. The ceilings are about 25 feet tall. The French doors and windows are about 15 feet tall so the space seem open and very sunny. I had lots of fun decorating this room. I used ethnic fabrics...rugs, and pillows. The white sofa and chairs are slip covered for easy care. I used local craftsmen for many of the pieces and spent lots of fun time in antique stores. My goal was to not make our home to formal....but keep beauty and comfort foremost in my design. The walls are white and I love the way the colors and fabrics pop off the white background.

Laura Gaskill added this to 10 Things Artists Want You to Know
3. Inspiration, in fact, can come from anywhere. Fine art painter Carole Meyer, who splits her time between Portland, Oregon, and San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, says, "Inspiration comes from everywhere and anywhere. I find I am very inspired by my own home. I love interior decor, and my art is an extension of that art form."And from Blake: "My inspiration to run a small business comes from working with my friends and colleagues to put beautiful things out in the world that people can touch and live with for centuries, hopefully. I love cocreating with a talented team in order to support each other and the community."
