Disclosure: My trip to Mexico was paid, and I was invited to the trip by Ogilvy and the Tourism Board of Mexico, but my opinions are my own.
Design Inspiration from Hotel California in Todos Santos, Mexico
I visited the Hotel California in Todos Santos, Mexico, in August during the trip that was arranged by the Mexican Tourism Board and Ogilvy. It was my first trip to Mexico, and fell in love with the country, and among others this little town, hotel and the vivid colors in Mexican interior design. Hotel California is in a small town called Todos Santos, which has authentic colonial architecture and cobblestone streets and it is a perfect spot for some Mexican design inspiration. Hotel California, with its famous name from the Eagles song was already founded in 1947, and you could spot many of the design elements already from that era. Each room is decorated with rich colors and original art work acquired locally and worldwide and has just the right mixture of rustic Mexican look and luxury. The vivid color palette made me feel alive and inspired, and I came home wanting to redo my entire home. Hope these pictures inspire you to think outside the box in your home, and bring some color to your fall home. I loved the mix of colors at Hotel California. Many of the rooms were decorated in vibrant yellows, lime green and red, but the outdoor areas had great mix of blues, whites and greens, combines in objects that looked rustic, earthy, natural creating a very relaxing atmosphere. I absolutely love the mixture of bold colors and rustic accents, and how you could easily get this look also at home with flea market finds, and paint. Look at the rustic details from Hotel California – they would look amazing also paired with more natural color palette.
I love the way you were able to capture the bedroom decor and bed as well as the Mexican floor tiles! you captured the same thing with the exterior room door and floor. You got SO many great shots. I love them. What a fun day that was ;-)
Stunning pictures Katja – lovely memories!
Wow, the mixture of all those vibrant colors along with the rustic feel are surprisingly relaxing. Looks like a fabulous place.
How beautiful, I love the vivid use of primary colors. I’ve never been and now it’s on my MUST SEE list.
