As fans of skulls, colour and Frida Kahlo, and seen as David has just started reading ‘The Lacuna’, we thought why not put together a Mexican inspired interiors post?

We first got a penchant for Mexican interiors when Mark took a trip to Seattle in 2009 and stayed with a friend. Their house had a typical Mexican exterior of green with a red painted door. Who said red and green shouldn’t be seen?
