Inspiration in Arizona

San Xavier Del Bac

As you may know, I recently took a cross country train trip with my Husband, Steven in June. I can’t wait to tell you about the whole trip, but today I wanted to show you one of the most inspiring places that we visited along the way! We went to Mission San Xavier Del Bac in Tucson Arizona. There was lots of inspiration to be had on the entire trip, but this was an especially magical place. With painted stucco and Native-American inspired designs, I found a way to bear the heat and really soak in the beauty of this place.

Today is going to be a photo-heavy sharing time, but I wanted you to feel just as inspired as I did in this place. If you keep a close eye out, you might even see some variations of these images in my future designs!

So, let’s sit back, and enjoy the inspiration:

This is the view that you see when you first walk into the church—magnificent, isn’t it?

I felt very inspired the the misson’s creativity and juxtaposition of different patterns and colors—it felt unplanned, and created a sort of beautiful chaos.
