Fashion | Travel | Lifestyle - Top 3 Places I am Crazy Inspired by Right Now

Sitting in the air conditioning while escaping the intense Houston summer heat, it’s only natural that I am dreaming of breezier and more beautiful destinations. As of lately, I am especially interested in a few places in Southern Europe that are definitely on my bucketlist for the next 12-18 months.

You can also imagine my Instagram feed is now filled with these destinations and their beautiful features!

Lisbon, Portugal

The beautiful costal capital of Portugal has drawn my attention for some time. A city, and rather country, that I never knew boasted such gazing sceneries is now all over my mood board. The vintage-esque architecture reminds me of polished Europe with a touch of historic detail. The sophisticated art and design compels me to design something based on these curvatures and patterns.

A one-hour train ride outside of Lisbon is located the romanticist Park and National Palace of Pena. A unique color scheme, the castle is based in the Portuguese Riviera overlooking the hills and plains of countryside Portugal. A trip to the top of a hill in the Sintra Mountains would prove unparallele to experience this magnificient piece of history that was once reduced to ruins then rebuilt.

The color in Lisbon is nothing short of stimulating. I hope to roam these brick-paved streets in Portugal one day and see what designs come to me with a gust of inspiration.

Mallorca (Majorca), Spain

Located in the Mediterranean, Mallorca also spelled “Majorca” is one of Spain’s Balearic Islands. While it is famously known for it’s divine beaches and coastlines, I am deeply drawn to its architecture (surprise). The detailing in the cathedrals and historic sights root an unmeasurable beauty to this city that I am so in love with!

Lake Como, Italy

(MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE!) Based at the foothils of the Alps, Lake Como is a resort area known for its breathtaking scenery. In my opinion, this area is the perfect mixture of luxury, mountains, lakeside nuances, and dramatic beauty. Looking at these landscapes awakens a part of me that is long awaiting a stunning refreshment.
