Hacienda Chic


Country Sampler - BOHO Style - - TABLE OF CONTENTS - WRIT­TEN BY Saman­tha Walsh. PHO­TOGRAPHED BY Dan Pi­as­sick (in­te­ri­ors) and Amanda Parét In­man (table­top).

Ban­ish the bland with spicy col­ors and fur­nish­ings with flair.

OP­PO­SITE: Re­claimed wood doors and a light fix­ture found in a shop in San Miguel de Al­lende, Mex­ico, add au­then­tic Latin fla­vor to this Texas mu­sic room. A paint­ing above the pi­ano and to the left of the doors fea­tures Chupa Chups, a pop­u­lar Mex­i­can brand of lol­lipop. Green mold­ings and door trim through­out the room are dis­tressed for an aged ap­pear­ance. ABOVE: Ash­ley Astle­ford chose vi­brant tiles, painted cast-iron chairs, and folk-art cut-pa­per pi­ca­dos to cre­ate a fi­esta­like mood on this out­door pa­tio and kitchen space. The ta­ble is crafted of re­claimed wood. BE­LOW: A lit­tle paint goes a long way to­ward giv­ing mod­ern fur­ni­ture a Hacienda makeover. RIGHT: A ta­blescape in­spired by Mex­i­can cul­ture is rich with char­ac­ter, fresh flow­ers and a rib­bon chan­de­lier.

“My goal is to mix mod­ern and Mex­i­can el­e­ments into a so­phis­ti­cated, bal­anced look.”

ABOVE: The spirit—not the coun­try of ori­gin—is what counts in Hacienda Chic style. Here, a painted Ro­ma­nian twin bed is right at home with a Mex­i­can tin mir­ror and painted stool. Your home is not a mu­seum, so feel free to ex­per­i­ment. LEFT: Clear acrylic ghost chairs be­come spunky with out­lined ac­cents in blue and turquoise chalky-fin­ish paint. BE­LOW: An as­sort­ment of hand-blown vin­tage glass pen­dants from ABC Car­pet & Home in New York City are hung at ran­dom heights above a din­ing room ta­ble. RIGHT: Grand ar­chi­tec­tural el­e­ments like a dra­matic Mex­i­can man­tel de­fine a liv­ing room. The sides were cus­tom de­signed by Astle­ford In­te­ri­ors. The large rug con­sists of rem­nants sewn and patched to­gether from Per­sian rugs from the 1930s. An over­size metal can­de­labrum of­fers a crown­ing touch.
