As a creative type, I find inspiration from my surroundings; art, nature, food, music, travel etc. This design was inspired by two breathtaking Villages we explored on a trip to southeastern France. 
I fell in love with the Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur Region. Each Village/City has a uniqueness and abundance of history. My fave place being a limestone village filled with warm whites and lush Mediterranean plants called Gordes. Another one of my favourite places in that region is the Ochre Village of Roussillon, France. Roussillon is also located on a ridge looking out to a beautiful valley. Surrounding Roussillon are hills and cliffs made of orange/red clay, therefore the entire village is made with these rich hues.

It is located on the Stampede grounds, where the annual ten days of chaos know as "The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth" is held. The massive building hosts Hockey games, figure skating and (larger) concerts.  Standing at 155 meters the Calgary Tower peeks out of the belt line Skyscrapers. The rotating restaurant is a great place to do brunch or dinner while ta…

It feels good to be back in Calgary, I always appreciate breathing in the fresh mountain air as I walk off the plane. It is definitely noticeable coming from Europe and even the US. Calgary has always been known for being a Nature city; Panoramic Mountain views, Provincial Parks running through the city, Lake communities and an abundance of mature trees spread across the city. With all the interesting architecture and sculptures that have been accumulating in the last couple years, Calgary is becoming a city of Nature and Art. It is cool to walk around downtown and see art installations and innovative bridges. This bridge was re built this year after it was washed away in the …
