This week is about people that inspire and motivate just by the sheer creative energy they bring to the world. Of course, for me, environments are the ultimate experience. So, while art is my passion, interior design is my life (that must make color my breath) so I never tire of the mind boggling spaces gifted designers create. They nudge me to make bolder choices, carry a broad stroke through a room, and trust my distinct point of view. Take a look...
Erin Martin- I mentioned her Monday and could babble some more about her brilliance, but let's just look shall we?
John Saladino is a more, shall we way, seasoned designer. He made his mark in the 80's and continues to create some of the most stunning and subtle homes I've ever seen. He's other worldly to me, he's so gifted and developed and genius... Here's just a glimpse of his work:

And just when you're baffled by the lack of color in my inspirational Designers so far, let me introduce madcap warm-hearted Jay Jeffers...

All of these designers are most inspiring because they're in motion. They take action, they try new things, they live their passion and watch their dreams and those of their clients come to life. Ahhh.... there your go- I'm inspired. Are you?"][/caption]
