Our last stop on our two-week trip seeking out the best Talavera tile, sinks, and murals we could find for Mexicantiledesigns.com was San Miguel Allende in the state of Guanajuato. It is a fascinating city, home to foreigners from all over the world. Like the city of Guanajuato we just left, it too is full of beautiful cathedrals and architecture from the 17th and 18th centuries.
Its charming narrow brick streets are full of ex-patriots from all over the world.
We were lucky enough to arrive right in the middle of the Carnival festival when the main plaza was full of families, music, food and merriment. These two large colorful ladies strolled the park while children of all ages dashed around throwing blown eggs filled with confetti at anyone who walked by.
Just outside of San Miguel, we saw a fantastic tiled kitchen wall inset with Mexican platters! What a great idea!
While we don’t yet carry platters like these at Mexicantiledesigns.com, we do carry a selection of lovely murals like this one which could have a similar stunning effect as the centerpiece to a tiled wall, or over the stove, or in a shower. Check them all out and use your own creativity to make your own home into a totally unique work of art!
All too soon we had to leave Mexico. We will miss the people, the food, and the artistry we found there, but are happy to be able to bring some of it back with us to Durango, Colorado and to share it with YOU through Mexican Tile Designs!
