Travel | Costa Rica

Lots of people say the devil is in the details, and I can tell you that sometimes I have a devil of a time figuring out those details! When inspiration is a little hard to come by, I often turn to things I’ve seen or heard in my travels that might translate to cool design. Whether that means looking through zillions of vacation photos or just observing the environment around me while waiting in line at the airport, I find that unexpected inspiration is often the best kind.

So, if you’re stuck and in need of some design inspiration, take a look at some of my photos from my trip to Costa Rica. This place is stunning and I drew a lot of inspiration for my new bedding at Sears, fabric collection, and just design in general during my stay.


The rest of my Costa Rican inspiration can be found in my photo gallery, so head on over and get inspired!
