Decorating Trend: Frida Kahlo

With its artful arrangement of fancy fleurs, this high-energy wallpaper is an awesome backdrop for pieces with their own shot of va-va-voom.

Where better for a radical visionary to admire their iconic reflection than in this outrageously opulent mirror?

The rustic-luxe wall hanging sings against a captivating cobalt, a nod to the shade that dressed Frida’s beloved La Casa Azul home.

A flamboyant tribute to Mexican iconography and carnival colours, this showy sofa is a fitting spot for a meeting of minds.

The prettiest of pinks and blues combine with painterly flourish for an ultra-feminine explosion of bucolic colour.

Hits of realism meet full-on fantasy in a totally out-there wallpaper that captures the artist’s revolutionary spirit.

In a modern-day painter’s studio, inspiration springs from nature’s lush greens and calming ochres.

An exuberant celebration of Mexican craft, this colour-saturated sofa would make the perfect spot to wait for the muse to strike.

An all-out riot of colour and pattern pings on both walls and floors, creating a decadently daring visual feast.

More really is more as a chic beaded cabinet forges a breathtaking bond with punchy prints.
