Travel: Inspiration for Your Designs

It is that time of year…SUMMER! Summer is filled with time- time to travel and get design inspiration and time to reboot.  In fact, I wrote about Travel Inspiration in a blog post last year at this same time!

Well, this year, my travel is my MOVE to INDIA! I actually leave tomorrow…AND, I haven’t packed. I know that sounds totally insane, and it kind of is! Work and getting family squared away, have been my focus. So much so, that I haven’t thought about the move.

Yep. I am not kidding. Do you see this picture? I am typing on my computer, in bed, with my dog at my feet- and we are both staring at my suitcase. I just can’t do it. Do you ever need a TON of pressure to get it done! Pressure just fires me up. It is like coffee:)

I don’t know about you, but when I try to get SO MUCH done, I don’t get those moments of inspiration that I need to design! My brain just doesn’t have the space to wander and think creatively.

For me, I am tapped out right now. I am not inspired! The good thing is, that I will be very soon!

So, if you are getting low on inspiration reserves, don’t stare at Pinterest, just GO! Go on a trip and forget about home and work. No, really!




Your clients will thank you and love you for adding a unique perspective to their space…And, more importantly, you will feel so much more rested and excited to attack your projects.
