See How Frida Kahlo’s Kitchen Has Influenced Interior Decor

One of Mexico's most celebrated artists, Frida Kahlo, has been an inspiration not just throughout Mexico, but throughout the entire globe. 

Her eye for color and detail has helped her create an iconic artistic style that is globally recognized.

Kahlo’s home, La Caza Azul, is one of the ways her spirit lives on. 

And in the heart of her house, the kitchen, the design, and style have become a sort of global phenomenon.

Artists, and everyday homeowners, have fallen in love with the unique style that is so quintessentially Frida Kahlo. 

Frida Kahlo’s kitchen features a bold mixture of bright colors, traditional artifacts, and natural textures. 

A goldenrod yellow table is complemented by a matching console table and striking yellow tile.Along with the bright yellow, the magnetic cobalt blue which accents the kitchen decor helps to command the attention of the room.

This blue tone can be found throughout the homes of Kahlo and her beloved husband, painter Diego Rivera. 

To help tie the room together, the bold colors are complemented by the whitewash walls that help settle the mood of the kitchen.

Today, authentic Mexican artifacts including clay pots, and woven textured seats, paint a picture of a kitchen space that served as the epicenter of bringing together the people Kahlo loved the most. 

Visitors who want to take a step back into history can explore the beautiful kitchen themselves by booking a trip to the Frida Kahlo Museum or La Casa Azul in Coyoacán
