Latin style...

I'm working on a new project that I'm extremely excited about and these are just a few images I'm drawing inspiration from.

These beautiful and colourful interiors all come from my new favourite book Latin Style by Juan Carlos Arcila-Duque.

As a pastel lover myself it's so fun and refreshing researching and sourcing more bold colours. This is a complete change from everything I've done till now and quite a challenge but I'm certainly up for it.

Once again, my scanned pics just doesn't do these incredibly beautiful rooms justice. The bedroom in the first pic I could stare and dream at for hours. It actually reminds me alot of the bedroom in the "Australia" movie I posted last week.

If any Sydneysiders know of any boutiques specializing in Latin/mexican style I'd be very interested and appreciate the heads up. This kind of decor as I'm discovering is not so readily available down under as opposed to Balinese/Asian. As I always say, thank God for Ebay lol.

It's always fun to try something new!
I love your inspiration. Love the iron beds in the first image. The four woven chairs in the last picture with that fantastic ceiling. Great fabrics too.
I hope you take us with you through your design process. Sorry, I'm not much help with shops down under, but I have faith that you will pull this off with your usual flair!
I can't wait to see what is next.

Oh Anna, you would find soooo much in my town for your project, of course I live in the heart of this style, our city is inclined towards homes that have that type of look as well as beachy and shabby. Good luck with your project!
