I just got back from visiting my grandmother in Lima. She has been under the weather. During my time there, my brother and I explored the city, my grandmother's house in Vipol, and we also took a small trip to Cuzco. The images below are some of the stylistic/aesthetic highlights of the trip. They are moments I was able to capture a bit of visual magic to tease the brain and inspire the heart. Whether it's the minimalist restaurant in Miraflores, the bright colored walls in my grandmother's bedroom, or the sharp contrast between all of the natural elements in Cuzco - this trip inspired ideas for CASA AMOS ROSA. I brought back with me a table cover from Chinchero, a jade frog from Aguas Calientes (for prosperity), books in Spanish for our library, and a small painting from La Plaza de Armas in Cuzco for the kitchen.
Throughout the trip, I found myself looking out the window of moving vehicles, getting lost in thought. Whether I was looking at people or at a landscape, in the end, I always smiled.
Below, are some highlights that were inspiring to me about the trip. I hope they inspire something in you: for your travels, for your home, or for your adventurous spirit who wishes to visit old friends/family. Art and beauty, it's everywhere!
