Design Inspiration | La Succulenta

I'm doing a series on my San Miguel Collection prints and am collaborating with interior stylist Mylene Raspado

This week I'm featuring: La Succulenta

Succulent plants have become very poplar in the past few years. It seems like at every turn they’re being used as wedding decor, household decorations, or business logos.

Popularity with succulents rose because their low maintenance is appealing to those that want to have a garden or some type of plant life in their home, but don’t have the knowledge or time to keep plants alive. They require very little maintenance and can be incorporated into any type of decor.


First of all, I love the large sized prints because they make a statement in your space. (This one is our large 24x32 framed print.)

Secondly, I haven’t yet mastered the skill of keeping plants alive. I bought some mini cacti last year around Christmas, and they’re all dead now. I even did research to see what was wrong with them. I figured they may have gotten an infection, so I looked up what I needed to do to save them…but they still died. I was so sad because I tried so hard. Anyway, if you’re like me and don’t have those plant whispering skills, the next best thing is a picture. It still brightens up the room, adds those earthy colors, and doesn’t die.

I love this style board that Mylene designed. It brings all the best earth tones together. My wardrobe consists of mostly black pieces, so I really appreciate seeing how earthy tones can still go well with black. Let me know what you think in the comments!
