While helping a client with the overall layout of their house, which is probably one of my favorite parts of my job we came into the kitchen to talk about what she wanted.
I normally ask my clients to gather some inspiration pics for our initial meetings so that I can get a better feeling of the type of space they want to achieve.
She was so overwhelmed by all the options she had for the kitchen that she came with tons of pictures, all in different styles, colors, finishes, and layouts. She found it so hard to narrow down even the color that she wanted to work with.

As creatives we tend to be on the never-ending search for inspiration to fuel that spark that moves us to actually create. We all get inspired by different things and at different moments but that feeling of something going off that pushes us to start creating is unbeatable.
I look for inspiration for three main areas of my work: the creative design side of things, the organizational type-A list building side, and the entrepreneurial side.
I want you to leave this post understanding that it’s a normal part of the creative process to need that inspiration to create, and it’s great if you find the activities that are able to give you the inspiration you crave.
The perfect project is the result of the evolution of a group of ideas, so once you have that initial spark get working on it, it will evolve and transform into the project that you want.
A huge part of my inspiration comes from collaboration, we all have different views and ways of doing things. Asking for feedback or looking at how others have solved problems can inspire me in such a big way.
Make sure you keep on reading so that you can see what I have decided to put together that is going to be a great tool for all of us.

There are a few things that really stand out to me and appeal to me more than a perfect landscaped exterior. I see in so many projects when the landscaping is just an afterthought, this isn’t the case in Casa Barrancas. I have featured work by Ezequiel Farca before, but this house is the perfect example of how modern interior design can incorporate tropical elements.
The contrast and balance that is created throughout the design by combining modern aesthetics and the tropical exteriors is just perfection. The modern interiors bring that clean, purposeful, and neutral vibe that is so appealing meanwhile the tropical elements in the landscape design add so much texture, playfulness, and movement to a space that could otherwise feel rigid.
Keep on reading for tons of inspiration from this project, and also make sure to check out the design takeaways from this project that you can incorporate in your space.
