SoCal Beach Walk

When you live in Los Angeles, CA,  it is such a treat to be able to squeeze in a beach walk from time to time.

And so rejuvenating.
I am in LA a few months a year, and definitely go listen to the Pacific Ocean sound as often as I can. I get inspired by the colors, the light, the textures -  then I search for it again in furniture and furnishings while designing interiors.

The sandpipers are fascinating to watch - running so quickly in coordination with the waves while feeding.

Taking the time to walk silently and bathe in the ocean breeze and sun, this is a formula for relaxation, I promise!
Why is the ocean air so good for you?

We're made of up to 80% water - we are connected to the ocean waters at a deep level. Our brain tunes in to the rhythm of the waves... like a meditation.
