Puerto Rician Inspiration

22 Jul

I skipped a couple posts because I’ve been on vacation in Puerto Rico. It was beautiful and colorful and I had so much fun. One thing I was struck by was all of the textures. So beautiful and diverse, I couldn’t help but fall in love. Here are a few of my favorites.

There were tons of amazing statues too.

And there was this amazing mural.

And this was by far the best tile I saw.

And of course the buildings were bright, the ocean was blue-green, the rainforest was lush, the mojitos were fresh, the food was delicious, and there were the street cats everywhere.Puerto Rico by makingmondays

I will be sharing more as inspiration turns into projects, perhaps even a few recipes.
