This is designers reflect on their travels. This recent trip to #sedona has definitely shown up in the office in this recent #materialboard. Textures, sandstone, terra-cotta, and a hint of the #vortex .

Well put together, broad shoulders, great legs, and a stoic presence. At least my tastes are consistent 😉

Loving these #cockscomb flowers... the ones that look like brains 🧠 they symbolize humor, warmth and silliness. No wonder I’m drawn to them, like attracts like 😇 #thesecret .

Sometimes a little worn, a little tattered, a little imperfect... is exactly what’s you need to perfectly finish a space #lighting #love .

Love is in the details! This locally made concrete stool is yummy. The artist uses vegetation native to northern California, which is pressed into cast concrete before it fully cures, creating a one-of-a-kind fossil-like pattern. ❤️ .

I do love using a good sofa table to delineate spaces. But this planter worked famously well and added the right amount of 🌱 .

I usually come visit the #seattlelibrary to gawk at the architecture. This time I was pretending I was Kate Blanchet in “Where'd You Go, Bernadette” walking through, avoiding young students who are interested in a selfie with me. One can dream of one day becoming a quasi celebrity has been designer with an Anna Wintour Bob and no time for the world. #dreams

I love this place. A reminder to let inspiration come as it will. Architect Minoru Yamasaki found inspiration in Gothic cathedrals, Islamic temples, and Japanese gardens. 
He also told the Commissioner who originally wanted it to function as a warehouse... I’m not doing that. That’s the dream. “No, I’m making Art first!” .

Inspired by the Stuttgart Tower in Germany, Edward Carlson first sketched a Giant Balloon 🎈tethered to the ground. This idea was later merged with John Graham’s to create the #spaceneedle you can see the influence, but I would LOVE to see a city skyline with a gigantic balloon like building ready to take flight 😍

This trip to #thailand last year still energizes me today. The vibrancy, the culture, the people, and even the endless covers of Ed Sheeran songs playing through the towns. .

But this villa we had in #phuket still takes the cake. Waking up to this view everyday, wading in our pool, listening to the elephant calls nearby and finding the stillness to remember, “Life is beautiful” .

Of course, everyone loves seeing the fabulousness of a completed #interiordesign project. I get just as giddy seeing #progress along the way. It makes the final product that much sweeter 😊

Sneak Peak Part Deux: of a recent project we completed in #marincounty. I’m calling it the Exodus of the Broken Buoy. Again, in love with how effective #whiteroses worked out in this breakfast nook 💕

A break from design work to address Operation Eric Bana Hair. It is well underway. Not sure how long it will last, but I’m embracing it while it’s here. Now only to decide if I chop it off, or go for some Antonio Banderas Desperado Realness? 🤔

My design crush for the week are these knotty bubbles 😍 Moving by the water is clearly taking hold of my design sensibilities. Inspired by Japanese packaging, buoys, and shibari. Made of hand-blown glass 'bubbles' bound together with knotted rope. Organic, simple, and incredibly beautiful. .
