Design Inspiration | Nopalitos

I'm doing a series on my San Miguel Collection prints and am collaborating with interior stylist Mylene Raspado. I'm hoping to make it easier for you to picture these fine art photographs in your home by giving you two mood boards for two different spaces in your home. 

The week I'm featuring: Nopalitos. The Spanish word for cactus is nopal. "Nopalitos" means little cactuses.  Mexico has many plants like the cactus that can survive hot temperatures, which often leads to them being common decorative plants in homes.

We actually have this photo hanging in our living room/dining room space. It's neutral colors really leaves the door open for bolder color choices in your decor.  I love the dark grays, purples, and greens to tie your space together. We have this print in a 24x36 size on one of our side walls in our living room, as a statement piece. Usually Mexico is known for vibrant colors, but I think this photo still represents Mexico using neutral warm tones. 

A bathroom can be a hard space to decorate. At least for me it's the last room in the house to get some love. I especially love how Mylene pulled the rose gold color from this photos to use as accents with the towel holder and toilet paper holder. Genius!


This week only (until Sunday), I'm offering free framing on all orders of this Nopalitos print. Let me know if you have any questions about this design mood board, or this specific print. Send me an e-mail or leave a comment below.
