We all need a vacation now and then to inspire and refresh us. Nothing reinvigorates the creative juices like a vacation to a tropical destination. I recently returned from a week in Costa Rica on a contact dance/yoga retreat. The flora and fauna took my breath away, the beach and Caribbean Ocean brought to mind ways to incorporate these beautiful hues in current and future projects.
We are working on a master bedroom, family room and living room in a home in Concord, MA, using aquas, teals, soft golds, antiqued bronzes and taupes. The multiple blues of the water and sky combined with the iridescence of the sand are some of the tropical inspirations I brought home with me. The color board tells part of the story and my vacation pictures tell the rest.
Where have you traveled that has inspired you? You don’t even have to travel that far from home to be inspired. I visited the glass exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. This piece made of spun glass by Toots Zynsky really spoke to me.
