Oeste Agave Room Tour

By Claire Thomas

I am so excited to give you a tour of my largest design project to date, Oeste, with my dear friend Yayo! Today we’re taking a look at the Agave Room. 

One of my favorite places in the world is the Madonna Inn in San Luis Obispo, CA. It’s so fun because each of their rooms has its own theme like the Rock Room or Jungle Room and I loved the idea of each of the bedrooms at Oeste having its own distinct character.

The guest room was heavily inspired by a couple of trips Yayo and I have taken through Mexico, so we called it the Agave Room because of the Dunn Edwards paint color, Antique Coin, and beautiful agave garden right outside its window. The plant I’m most excited about though is the Angustifolia, which is used to make an agave-based spirit called Bacanora, because of its cultural history—something I’m always delving into for inspiration.
