I took an unplanned trip to coastal Provence just before Christmas.  Such a marvellous refresh for the senses.  Travel and nature alike are two of the best ways to find great inspiration as a designer, and taking in travel destinations during their low season can be particularly interesting.

One early morning, for a brief few moments, nature produced a glorious Winter spectacle outside my hotel room.  Just look at the variety of calming blue greys and then the intense flash of rosy orange, reflected on the undulations of the sea.

This is the kind of colour palette that would translate wonderfully indoors.
