8 Design Lessons to Steal from Tulum, Mexico
A perennially chic getaway and fashion-set favourite, Tulum is the enchanting epitome of pure cool in the raw. The idyllic scenery where the beach meets the jungle lends a signature improvisational style. Décor is a juxtaposition of edited Mexican modernism and historic Mayan influences. Get whisked away by these dreamy interiors and sublime tips to channel the destination in any space.
While most climates forgo the plein-air structure of the beach cabana, any local is free to embrace the idea of welcoming nature indoors. Get the look with palm fronds or an oversized photography print (in lieu of a view). Select unique, tropical fragrances to transport you to the lush, Yucatán coast.
Clean and relaxed, Tulum’s colour palette feels almost like living inside a coconut. The crisp, coastal vibe is flush with bright whites, soulful rosewood, and rich mixed woods. We love the high contrast and raw modernity of adobe walls, thatched roofs, and plantation blinds.
Get inspired by the island vibe, from its colour palette to its décor. Think pineapple accents, lime green to papaya orange hues, and the smooth to highly textured juxtaposition of a shell.
