Add a kick-back, road trip feel to one of your walls with this piece celebrating the beauty of the saguaro cactus, produced in three different colors and in a variety of sizes, making it a flexible design item for any size room.
Using cactus in your decor doesn’t always have to read as a Southwestern look, says Daniella. She posits that instead of the typical desert brown palette, a cool way to use cactus is to mix it up with tones of gray and white. We love this bedding, featuring a lovely multi-colored watercolor against a crisp white background, painted by artist Casey Saccomanno.
With so much diversity in cacti sizes, textures, colors, and shapes, the sculptural plant can read as masculine, feminine, or more neutral, making cactus decor a great fit for a gender-neutral room or nursery, note the sisters. “It’s great to decorate a space for little ones with cactus decor, instead of displaying the real thing and worrying about little hands getting into it,” says Andanette. To add some whimsy and a touch of nature to a nursery nightstand, bureau, or bookcase shelf, reach for The Fiber Maven’s handmade, crocheted potted cactus, sold on Etsy.
One of the many reasons why Daniella and Andanette love working and decorating with cactus is the diversity of the plant. This cast-iron coat rack pleases in both form and function with its prickly pear shape.
