Last month I had the chance to celebrate being newly married with an international getaway. Just a short flight from the shores of California, Lake Louise is nestled in the outskirts of Alberta, and is surrounded by a picturesque landscape filled with the natural beauty of Canada.
We had the chance to hike up to the uniquely quaint Plain of Six Glaciers Tea House, where we were greeted with sweeping views and simple, yet comforting, fare after a long trek. The blue skies and water of the lake harmoniously complemented the snow-capped mountains, just as the green trees were the perfect backdrop for the tea house’s bright red patio dining set.
Everything in nature is about balance, and the scenic views around the gorgeous lake reminded me of my own work with interior design.
I love how the use of color can impact a space, and especially like balancing perfect color combinations that create a warm sense of comfort and inspiration.
I find it amazing how inspirational and transformative nature is, especially for creative people who need to restore themselves. The captivating scenery left me feeling humbled by the inspiring display of natural beauty.
In a natural creative process, the glacial ice coming down from the mountains grinds against the surrounding bedrock, resulting in the distinctive turquoise hue of Lake Louise. My creativity was definitely revived after our trip to Lake Louise and I think my experience is best summed up in a quote from artist Vincent Van Gogh, “If you truly love nature, you will find beauty everywhere.” Where do you find inspiration?
