CP Coastal just wrapped up a fun design project for a new client based on the East Coast. Several of my designs will be coming out on a line of their apparel and giftware.
Until now, I've never posted pictures of where the creativity happens - it actually happens everywhere, but mostly the mechanics of the work happens in my studio in Ventura, CA. Here is a sneak peek at where all the fun happens!
I've intentionally surrounded myself with some inspirational and meaningful things. On the walls you'll see an underwater photo I snapped of my husband, Brian, snorkeling on our honeymoon on St. Lucia, and a print of this cute little dog painting by uber designer and HGTV personality, David Bromstad. He even signed it for me. I met David in Los Angeles a few years back when this picture was taken. He's just as engaging and fun in person as he is on TV.
I picked up the three carved wooden fish in Barbados. The big wooden candle sticks next to the fish were carved by my amazing Uncle Bob, who is always a hoot to be around. I painted them teal blue and added damask designs. And of course, the thing I love to see when I sit down to get those creative juices flowing are my screen savers. They make me want to dive right into that mesmerizing, blue Caribbean water.
I hope you enjoyed the tour!
