Paris

It’s been a few years now, but my trip to Paris was one of my favorites and still provides so much inspiration for me as I develop new products and Design Themes. I am still awed by the beauty.

Sometimes there are no words but no need to search for them. No matter how hard you try, it’s overwhelming–so be silent and breathe it in. Just take in the moment and be grateful.

I purchased some charcoal sketches and photos. As I walk by and see them years later, I feel the emotions and go there. Such a gift.

I took a boat ride on the Seine. It was breath-taking.

One of the most enduring images in Paris is the cafe’ scene. A romantic vision of great artist, intellectuals or writers consorting in one of the many cafes.

Everything seems in bloom and special. Juliette balconies take on the most romantic quality.
