Tokyo at night.
A whole lot of action here.
The 52nd floor of the Park Hyatt Hotel. Remember the movie “Lost in Translation?”
Greetings from Tokyo! My husband John and I just arrived via Hawaii to Japan to see our son, Alex, play with the Pacific Music Festival in Osaka and Tokyo…this is a HUGE dream come true for him and we could not be any more proud. Add to that our 25th Wedding Anniversary and this is quite an amazing and wonderful holiday.
I have sometimes ventured into Asian influence in my design, but this trip is proving ever-more inspirational for me. Can’t wait to bring back some great innovation and ideas. Oh…the fashion…oh the eating….oh the shopping.
I am working on the transport of all the amazing pieces that I am finding here back to the Windy City. Todays venture into the Tokyo Post Office was fun and fascination 🙂
I have always been able to get my fix for all things Asian-with an emphasis on Chinese treasures- at Pagoda Red, one of my favorite shops in Chicago. Here are a sample of some of things that have caught my eye while sourcing for clients recently at home…
This first image is from a recent Pagoda Red exhibit featuring one of my favorite local photographers, Doug Fogelson. His works here are of Japan’s annual blooming of cherry blossoms. Doug has a way of allowing us to see each of his works as three dimensional and moving along with the eye. Exquisite. I always feel lucky when I have the opportunity to install one of his pieces in a clients home.
