It feels like cheating to post pictures from instagram... But anyway I had to show you the stunning suite we stayed in. Everything was unique, and beautiful. I had to get my butt to the beach right away, so I didn't stick around to document every beautiful detail.
You know, these kinds of trips are so important to re-fuel, get away from the daily to-do list and come home with a fresh perspective; new colors and textures swimming around in your brain. The staggering in-box can be tackled with a little less of a chip on the shoulder. O and I are learning to simplify and he is teaching me that I actually need to travel around and experience places that I long to experience.
I have catalogued some of the things that I saw and liked. Lets go over them shall we? Seeing these images is reminding me how soothing it is to have ocean views out of every window, and to be able to hear the waves crashing, rhythmically and constantly. The hotel common areas were truly beautiful, but I wasn't able to snap any pics, they have a no phone/camera policy that they enforce.
Just two of the color inspiration images I took. I have more for later in the week.
Also I was nervous that via instagram my life would seem so lux, so glamorous, so...expensive. But, I decided not to worry about that either. I mean, obviously I am only posting the beautiful, and the things I personally want to look at again, and remember. I have an instagram account because I figure that you all want to see that too, and I want to look at other creative's sources of daily inspiration too. Sometimes it can seem like a mystery, the way an artist lives, and her perspective on what she looks at, and surrounds herself with. Well, nothing this day and age is a mystery, but you know what I mean. I hope you all enjoy taking a peak and keep your "real life" perspective fresh and near.
I have been helping my mom with some design decisions, and it has helped me realize how differently our brains process information, and how we make decisions in general. When I explain why something works, her eyes light up when she sees it too. It has made me better at expressing what is inspirational to me, why I choose certain colors or textures or lines. I think its good to pass that along to you guys too. Hence the color palettes.
