Outdoors In / Indoors Out

We love the juxtaposition of something beautiful and precious, in the midst of the outdoors.  On the flip side, the presence of lush green in pristine clean minimal spaces is therapeutic.  Becoming one with nature whichever way you turn it, activates us to our core and taps into a basic instinct that makes every one of us feel something.  This weeks inspiration focuses on the blissful intrusion of nature and our wondrous invasion of  it.
