Travel, Create and Learn…

LM1

If you follow my blog…then you know that I have a friend traveling the world.  They’ve been going strong now for about 8 months…and they have 7 more months to go.

I don’t know if this type of traveling would be on my bucket list…but I definitely found something that would be…and that is L/M Retreats!

First on my list would be L/M’s trip to Formentera, Spain! This is straight from their website:

We’ll spend our days eating long meals together outdoors, learning photography & the art of visual storytelling, and enjoying conversation & discussion with one another as well as exploring all the island has to offer—sailing, fresh seafood, and gorgeous beaches. The villa we’ll call home during the retreat is a few minutes walk from a beach, and tapas, cava, and sun promise to be plentiful.

We plan to allow plenty of down time for reading & writing, napping, swimming, discussions, photo editing, sun bathing & sipping, or simply doing nothing at all. There will also be a watercolor painting class with a local artist, a sunset beach picnic, and a paella cookout. 

The purpose of this retreat is to recharge, rejuvenate, relax, and reconnect. Creativity can only blossom if we allow ourselves to be still once in a while; we see more clearly when we slow down & ideas come fresh. 

What this won’t be is a hectic, highly structured “workshop”—it’s truly a retreat.

Yes PLEASE!

Or how about Santorini, Greece

The days will largely be spent painting; lingering over meals together; learning & practicing photography; having group discussions; relaxing at the villa; and exploring the island. This is a retreat devoted to creating community & inspiration over slow food shared, creativity, and intentional discussion all while recharging in this luxurious perch nestled in the hills above the ancient Pyrgos village & surrounded by striking views of the cobalt Aegean Sea. 

Run do not walk to L/M Retreats…because some trips for 2017 are already SOLD OUT!

Is that a DOME?

geohome6

Yes…these crazy looking home structures were slated to be the homes of “Tomorrowland”.

Many feel they still will be…while others say…they’re already here!

These kind of weird looking homes don’t exactly fit into those perfect little neighborhoods you see when walking around a cute downtown area or a clean-cut suburban gated community. But Buckminster Fuller saw the potential is those triangles: With the goal of creating a structure analogous to nature’s own designs, Fuller began to experiment with geometry in the late 1940s. In 1951, he patented the geodesic dome, and while you may not see a lot of on a normal city street, geodesic domes are known to be the most efficient building system available. So, why should you want a dome home anyway?

 

 

This post is dedicated to Tom and Mary Hoyer…who I know personally are absolutely crazy about DOMES and were the first to introduce me to these very unique structures!

Making Small Rooms Even Better…

Tall floor lamps along with floor to ceiling art presentations are both key factors in creating a smaller space look larger.

Large mirrors…strategically placed!

Ceiling lights…chandeliers in place of table lights to draw your eye up!

 

Small is a state of mind…Love, Inspire!
