Bright colors, bold textiles and decorative touches bring a touch of Old Mexico to this refashioned space.

A little Mexican flair plus some vivid color and distinctive tile transform this outdated kitchen and dining room.

The kitchen cabinets are painted red, and the hallway wall is painted blue. The upper part of one cabinet is covered with a shutter fitted with frosted glass and decoupage paper tiles. Holiday lights are placed inside the frosted cabinet.

An embroidered napkin is hung in front of the kitchen window for color. Glass chandelier prisms are spray-painted bright colors and hung from the cornice with cup hooks.

Talavera tiles have been adhered to the backsplash with hook-and-loop tape. Painted wood trim finishes the edges.

A new track light system gives the kitchen directional lighting with a more updated look.

The edges of two carpet remnants are bound so that they can be used as an area rug under the dining table and as a runner in the kitchen. A border is masked off around the perimeter of each and spray-painted red.
