Combining the explosive colours and iconography of latino style with pop art, this book offers an array of easy, inexpensive projects to liven up the interior and brighten the garden. It suggests how to use t-shirt fabric to make toss pillows with fringe or turn inexpensive soft-drink bottles into fabulous glittery vases; heighten the hues in any home with Margarita candles and campy terracotta patio lights; use a glue gun to transform an ordinary garen into a Mexicali masterpiece complete with a Bonita birdfeeder and Milagro tree ribbons; ditch standard party fare for playful Loteria wine glass charms, spicy serving bowls and Frida Kahlo placemats.
