Mexican Design Elements

Mexican Design Elements

Decorative ceramic tiles are classic Mexican home accents that can be used for a kitchen backsplash, for table or countertops or as a colorful decorative frame around a mirror. Talavera tiles are commonly used for decorative fireplace or wall murals, to embellish sinks, as borders for mirrors, windows or doorways, on fountains and in bathrooms. Terra-cotta tiled floors are commonly seen in Mexican style design.
Interior courtyards are another common element of Mexican interior design. Large arched doorways, scrolling iron accents and painted stucco walls in warm earth tones are mixed with dazzling bright accents in shades of red, yellow, orange, green and blue. Rustic wood, wrought iron, ceramic and copper furnishings and décor can be found both inside and outside of a traditional Mexican style home. 

Mexican Home Accents

Add splashes of color and interest throughout your room with traditional Mexican folk art, pottery or tapestries.


Talavera pottery is a Mexican style of ceramic that usually hand painted with colorful motifs or intricate mosaic patterns. A Talavera vase, urn or platter set on a stand will look beautiful on a shelf or side table. This type of ceramic is also used to make tiles, flower pots and candle holders.

Folk Art

Traditional Mexican folk art includes wooden carvings, statues, religious art and other hand crafted ornaments. In Mexican home decor, you may see some Day of the Dead (Dia De Los Muertos) folk art. These items include elaborately decorated skulls and skeletons.

Wall Art

Walls are a great place to showcase traditional Mexican arts, crafts and other ornaments. Here are a few ideas:
  • Wall hangings made of metal like tin or copper.
  • Terra cotta plaques.
  • Mexican art prints and paintings.

When buying a new house, or remodeling your house it is always a great idea to use a Mexican touch.

Fideicomiso The Mexican Bank Trust

The Mexican bank trust is an instrument commonly used for non-Mexican nationals to purchase coastal land in Mexico. This bank trust in Mexico is known as a FIDEICOMISO.

Many people are unaware that Non-Mexicans can own property in Mexico. For many, it is a surprise that Mexican foreigners can actually own property that is right on the beach, YES, Mexican foreigners can own a beachfront home and live full time very comfortably in Mexico.
Mexico 1917 Constitution outlines clearly that no Non-Mexican Citizen is allowed to own Mexico Real Estate within 60 feet from the mean high-tide line, up to 31 miles inland from the ocean, and up to 62 miles from international borders (The Restricted Zone).

As Mexico intelligently realized over the past several decades, foreign investors with their foreign investments were and are very attracted to the beautiful natural coastlines of the Mexican Pacific, the Sea of Cortes, the Mexican Caribbean, Gulf of Mexico There were even many Americans who preferred to live in the less expensive Mexico neighborhoods, but within driving distance of their jobs on the American side. There is not a higher law over the Mexican Constitution….so amendments were established.

The fideicomiso is an agreement set up between the Mexican foreign buyer and a Mexican bank. The bank acts on behalf of the buyer The bank will have title, but has a fiduciary obligation to follow the directions and wishes of the foreign buyer the non-Mexican buyer can enjoy, use, rent out, improve upon the property, expand, build and sell the Mexico Real Estate and reap 100% of the profits:

  • Fideicomitente = seller of the property
  • Fiduciary = the bank acting as the trustee and holder of the title
  • Fideicomisario = beneficiary of the property

Term of 50 years, and it is renewable for another 50 year term.

Second beneficiaries can be established within the trust to establish automatic inheritance of the property in case of deaths of the first beneficiaries.

The buyer, can choose which banks he wishes to establish his Bank Trust There are various multi-national banks in Mexico.

In regards to Non-Mexicans buying property outside of the Restricted Zone Mexico Real Estate Bank Trusts are not needed in these regions and property can be held simple and straight title.

The Fideicomiso is used to acquire property here in Mexico only on land that is within the Restricted Zone, arguably the most desirable amongst buyers.

Thanksgiving Day 2016

Thanksgiving Day in the United States, is traditionally a holiday to give thanks for the food collected at the end of the harvest season.

Pilgrims held their second Thanksgiving celebration in 1623 to mark the end of a long drought that had threatened the year’s harvest and prompted Governor Bradford to call for a religious fast. Days of fasting and thanksgiving on an annual or occasional basis became common practice in other New England settlements as well. During the American Revolution, the Continental Congress designated one or more days of thanksgiving a year, and in 1789 George Washington issued the first Thanksgiving proclamation by the national government of the United States; in it, he called upon Americans to express their gratitude for the happy conclusion to the country’s war of independence and the successful ratification of the U.S. Constitution. His successors John Adams and James Madison also designated days of thanks during their presidencies.
In 1817, New York became the first of several states to officially adopt an annual Thanksgiving holiday; each celebrated it on a different day, however, and the American South remained largely unfamiliar with the tradition. In 1827, the noted magazine editor and prolific writer Sarah Josepha Hale—author, among countless other things, of the nursery rhyme “Mary Had a Little Lamb”—launched a campaign to establish Thanksgiving as a national holiday. For 36 years, she published numerous editorials and sent scores of letters to governors, senators, presidents and other politicians. Abraham Lincoln finally heeded her request in 1863, at the height of the Civil War, in a proclamation entreating all Americans to ask God to “commend to his tender care all those who have become widows, orphans, mourners or sufferers in the lamentable civil strife” and to “heal the wounds of the nation.” He scheduled Thanksgiving for the final Thursday in November, and it was celebrated on that day every year until 1939, when Franklin D. Roosevelt moved the holiday up a week in an attempt to spur retail sales during the Great Depression. Roosevelt’s plan, known derisively as Franksgiving, was met with passionate opposition, and in 1941 the president reluctantly signed a bill making Thanksgiving the fourth Thursday in November.


In many American households, the Thanksgiving celebration has much of its original religious significance; it centers on cooking and sharing a bountiful meal with family and friends. Turkey, a Thanksgiving staple so ubiquitous it has become all but synonymous with the holiday, may or may not have been on offer when the Pilgrims hosted the inaugural feast in 1621. Today, however, nearly 90 percent of Americans eat the bird—whether roasted, baked or deep-fried—on Thanksgiving, according to the National Turkey Federation. Other traditional foods include stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie. Volunteering is a common Thanksgiving Day activity, and communities often hold food drives and host free dinners for the less fortunate.

¿What are you grateful for today?
