Some of the old crumbling mansions in the San Telmo district still have most of their original features. We stumbled upon one old mansion that didn't look that much from the outside but inside opened up into three massive courtyards, all with beautiful old tiling. All the rooms had been become little shops of antiques, vintage clothing and architectural salvage.
A lot of the boutiques we went to also had flashes of patterned tiles which I thought looked awesome.
Certainly gave me inspiration for my own little shop! We still have the original Minton floor in the hallway of the mock tudor building that will become the home of my new business. Once we get it polished up and repaired I think it will look fantastic!
