Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera's Home!

We are in Mexico City, hanging with the Grazia Mexico team! They are so awesome! We did a conference this morning at Ibero University, all about our blogging experience and chatted to the students about our blogging secrets. It was such a blast:) Later in afternoon we headed to Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera's home. the It was such a magical and inspiring visit! When we stepped in to Frida and Diego's blue painted loft, you could feel their creative energy surging through it. Their art was in a separate building, and it was the kind of art you only dream about seeing in person. The dinning room was filled with paper mache creatures and hand painted plates. Diego's bedroom was right off their dinning room and had his iconic denim painted overalls hanging. Their kitchen had both of their names, along with doves on the wall.. made out of tiny teacups. Frida had a day bedroom and a night bedroom, because she was in a wheel chair from her Polio and her car accident. Her bedroom had a big cabinet filled to the max of all of her favorite things, like skulls and hand made miniatures. The coolest was her studio! You could see all of her paints just sitting there in a box. It was such a special exhibit and what made it even cooler, was that Vogue curated an exhibit right next to her house of her clothing. Her headdress, nail polish, corsets and her eccentric outfits were all there! It was a truly breathtaking house!
