It’s been a while since the Mexican painter made her mark on the art world, living from 1907-54, but Frida Kahlo
hasn’t lost any of her potency as the years have trundled on. In fact, her bold, colourful and uncompromising style is even seeing a resurgence in the world of interior design. We’ve compiled a list of the items most inspired by her pivotal work. They range in textures, prints and colours and will add depth and character to almost any space.
Who decided art had to be hung on a wall? This Tor rug from John Lewis
is a piece of work in itself. Both abstract and colourful, it’s basic enough not to complicate a room that already has some patterns going on. However, it’s also interesting enough to be a focus piece in a room that’s otherwise quite blank.
have a great range of items with a touch of Frida. The Isolde table lamp featured below is made from green resin and also comes in dark blue. It’s a great way to have both a functional item and an art piece in one. The deep greeney-blue tones used throughout are rich enough to add some depth to a bright room that has complimentary tones.
For items that better capture the heavily natural botanical aspects of Frida’s work, there are some beautiful bold cushions, throws and curtains from Arley House
available. And John Lewis
’ Scandi Pattern Vase collection look stunning with large blooming flowers placed inside.
A hint of Mexican textures and touches are created with the selection of Jute baskets they’ve created too. The Fusion basket has a stunning red and blue fringe. Whilst the basic Jute basket has a more natural shape and multicoloured tassels, in warm red, yellow and purple tones.
Go on, take a lesson from Frida and add some bold colour to your interior design space.Also read:Embrace the clashNEXT! Natural touches are more important than ever in our homes. Click any image below to begin browsing our image banks of good examples...
