Musings on Nicaragua

It’s hard to say who is coming and who is going. It could take a hold of any one of us and release us at its whim. The sunshine ultraviolet in its brilliance and everything shown in honesty without shadow or with holding. This is a place that reminds us all in unison to pause and watch a sunset. A place that affirms cooperation as if the secret to happiness is sharing as easy as a smile. We move together as everyone stands in solidarity on the beach watching the surfers like we are rooting for our team without a scoreboard. There is beauty, unison, balance and it is my intent to capture some of this magic in what I help to create there.

Romantic Valentine’s Dinner

I am in love with Stella McCartney’s whimsical Spring Collection. In the spirit of love and season I was inspired to create this table scene.

Go for the Gold

The SLC Olympics were incredible. I attended the opening ceremonies and many of the events. At the opening ceremonies I felt in sync with such a broad collective, participating in unison was a very profound experience. The state was celebrating and all of the party guests were interesting people.

In the spirit of the Olympics, and in support of the dedication and commitment the athletes,  I give you the gold.

Valentine’s Day

 

 

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. Setting a table for those you love is a fun way to celebrate your Valentine(s). And staying in surrounded only by your closest sweethearts beats swimming in crowds celebrating young love. The flowers are from Roots, SLC Utah and the arrows are from Fletcher and Fox.

Office Update, Before and After

The space didn’t reflect the young, sharp business owner and his executive staff. They needed something smartly updated and mindful of investing too much into a space that this successful company might outgrow. I chose to turn my back on elements that would drain a budget and chose to focus on high impact. We couldn’t be more unanimously pleased with the results.
