Spring Summer 2015

Design Inspiration

Coming from New York which had very little natural elements besides Central Park I have come to really appreciate being outdoors and nature.  It's pretty easy to do in Southern California since the weather is predictable and sunny.  I love taking walks outside, because the weather is great and there are so many varieties of flowers to see.  The main reason all of the beautiful plant life is able to thrive here year round is because of the awesome sunny weather and great soil. 

Looking into symbolism of the sun I came across the Egyptian Sun God Ra.  His tears were said to be honey bees sent down to man to deliver a message (honeybees again playing a huge role ;) ).  The Sun God was buried in a monumental obelisk shaped structure inscribed with Egyptian hyroglyphics. 

Pyramids are known for their stable, everlasting structure.  The Egyptian pyramids shapes were designed to symbolize the points of sun rays.

Writer Carl Hoffman took a trip to the Giza Pyramids. This is how he viewed the pyramids on his camel ride.
