So great to be able to carry a camera everywhere and capture Mother Nature’s lesson on interior design and the influence of color! Reflecting my love for color in nature, I am pleased to have multiple homes whose gardens I have designed win the LaCanada Valley Beautiful Award. Thought I would share some of the pictures I have taken from my travels and daily life that have influenced my eye on color and inspired color combinations.
Animals – just want to do a room in these colors
In England - is this peacock just the best color combination?
Plants – some of my favorite colors
At my stylist Joseph (Salon Aguayo) - the colors in the many amazing orchids raised by stylist Michael inspire me weekly
On a walk - succulents reflecting some of my favorite shades
On a hike - ahhhh the bright yellow aspen against the bright blue sky
A walk in England - the greens of trees and nature's use of mirror reflection
The Beach – you just know color washes over my soul here
