It’s fiesta time at Primark HQ. We’re saying ¡hola! to vibrant and vivacious interiors, just flown in from North America, in our hottest summer homeware trend yet – Mexican Fiesta! What better way to find your summertime spirit than oozing Mexican flare into your living space? We’ve got the DL on how to create your own ambient setting inspired by our cool new collection, from hand-woven textiles, to Otomi patterns and patchworks. Say it with us - olé!
Aztec bedding €16, cactus cushion €6, mirror tassel cushion €8
Bold and bright
We’re bringing it with the colour palette this season; contrasting flaming shades of reds and yellows with cooler tones of greys and blues, as a fitting homage to the country. If your interpretation of interiors is all or nothing, it’s time to start colour blocking - emphasise your walls with striking shades of pink and turquoise - the brighter the better.
If you’re living a little further from the equator, fear not, you can turn up the heat with ease. With an eclectic theme running through the trend, adding some spice to a flavourless room is as simple as choosing your burrito fillings. Capture Mexican Fiesta’s flamboyant and welcoming ambience with statement pieces that will draw focus to areas of the room, from bohemian printed duvet covers, to dangerously comfortable coloured throws (all-day siestas please).
Faux cacti €3.50, flower lights €4, hanging hearts €3
It’s all in the details
Patterned accents more your thing? If a ‘splash’ of Otomi print is enough to satisfy your interior refresh cravings, dress your space with pops of vivid fuschia and cayenne red, combined with some all-important rustic elements – think wooden materials and woven accents.
Connect to the outdoors with fresh green plants to let the room ‘breathe’, or fake it with cute cactus cushions (they’re a little more comfortable anyway…). Ooh, and with a hefty collection of funky cushions to perk up your pad, this trend is perfect for the accessory hunters amongst you.

Suit your space
Textures are topping the trend this season, as we embrace Mexico’s infamous craftsmanship with intricately detailed accessories – think heavy embellishment and nifty needlework – that’s right, pom poms and tassles are here to stay! Enriched textiles reflect the South American setting effortlessly, so make the most of our quirky wall hangings and beautiful bedding. From festivals and food, to siestas and sambas, we’re bringing this year’s summer holiday to your doorstep.
Whether you’re more siesta or fiesta, this trend is all about bringing summer indoors. Shake off your well-worn springtime jacket, and say ¡hola! to a fresh, vibrant and eclectic new living space – you’ll be feeling the heat in no time.
