Creative Trip Miami

I visited Miami recently to meet with fellow blog tour designers and hear talks on design/business strategies. The #1 takeaway from that day was how fearless you have to be when owning your own business. But one of the biggest reasons for my trip was to take a few days to explore Art Basel, which has been on my wish list for a few years. It’s one of the most important art events of the year for art collectors and dreamers alike. Art Basel is filled with artists, hipsters, serious collectors and designers alike…it’s really something to see in person. I toured Elle Decor’s Modern Life Concept House, went to a swanky after party, roamed outdoor night galleries, went to a museum, had cocktails on a yacht with my friends and ate some amazing food.

There are so many ways to tap into your creative spirit. Mine is being surrounded by art, artists, creative thinkers, walking through a perfectly curated gallery, to streets filled with graffiti – they are all equally compelling for me. I have friends who love being in nature or cooking to trigger a creative thought. I think the lesson for me is to find time to do it more often.

Here’s a photo journal of sorts of some of my moments in Miami.

As a designer and blogger, I’m asked to do some pretty exciting things. In just a few days I’ll be in Las Vegas to be part of #BlogTourVegas to learn and promote the latest and greatest in kitchen and bathroom design projects at KBIS2015 I’ll be sharing some amazing projects and experience as I go along.

Here’s a contest I entered featuring a Perlick under counter refrigerator that fits in a space with a depth of only 18″! I’ll be visiting them to see it in person (an drool) when I’m at KBIS 2015. I think it’s perfect for my studio space beverage area, don’t you think? Please CLICK HERE vote for my design! The contest ends tomorrow!Perlick Featuring Habermehl Design Group
