Incredibly Colorful Mexico City Loft Designed by Jessica Ayromloo

Mexico City’s bustling Centro Histórico neighborhood is like an architectural crazy quilt. Stitched into its crowded streets, you’ll find Spanish Colonial cathedrals, Art Nouveau museums, and the remains of Aztec temples. So, when the L.A.-based interior designer Jessica Ayromloo was hired to design her friend’s CDMX Pied-à-Terre, she recalls, “I wanted it to compliment what was outside.” Her client was Carlos Rittner, the longtime president of CR Creative Services, a company that handles warehousing and installation for interior designers. The two had met while Ayromloo was working at the office of designer Kelly Wearstler.

Carlos Rittner called to Kelly Wearstler to transform an apartment in a 1940s converted office building into a place that could host his family as well as a steady stream of artists passing through the creative capital. He needed adequate accommodations for guests and only a petite kitchen. Otherwise, he gave Ayromloo carte blanche saying, “I told her to do what she would do for herself.”

“That’s just what it’s like walking around Mexico City. There are pops of color everywhere—tiles mixed together, color-blocked exteriors, there’s no real rhyme or reason for it.”

Explains Ayromloo, who used Comex paints to conjure CDMX’s vibrancy inside.

A dazzling, tumbling, block-patterned cement tile by Rayito de Sol delivers a jolt of color to the entryway along with walls painted in Comex’s Colonial Blue and Amapola Red. The vintage chair as well as the copper plates turned sconces were scored at La Lagunilla.

Some furniture – like the 1960s, mosaic-topped dining table, and a writing desk painted by David Serrano—came from Downtown, the erstwhile L.A. design mecca, which the client had long worked with. But the majority was sourced around Mexico from Trouvé, the blue-chip CDMX vintage dealer, antique shops in nearby Puebla, and the sprawling local flea market, La Lagunilla.

“We would go out, get tacos, walk around, go to museums, just get inspired. We had a floor plan and ideas, but a lot of times they would change or morph based on things we would see with each trip.”

Explains Ayromloo of their intuitive, hyper-local design process.

In this Mexico City apartment by Jessica Ayromloo, color and pattern reign. In the petite kitchen and dining area, the floors and walls are clad in a patchwork of cork and tile by Rayito de Sol, the Art Deco pendant and the 1950s chandelier are from La Lagunilla, and the 1960s mosaic dining table and 1950s Allan Gould scissor chairs are from Downtown. The painting is by Nick Farhi.

An antique door sourced in Puebla, southeast of Mexico City, is repurposed into a headboard, a perfect counterpoint to walls painted Comex’s Langosta pink in the primary bedroom and decorated with masks from La Lagunilla. The pink pendant light is by Mexican brand Casamidy, and the vintage end tables are by Drexel. The cement tiles are by Rayito de Sol, and the Oaxacan textile on the bed is from Textil Indigena in the Shops at Downtown Hotel.
