Last week I visited one of my favorite places…Miami Beach.  This trip in particular was quick, just three days in total, but as always it felt amazing to be there.  I stayed at the Miami Beach EDITION which has fast become one of my favorite hotels in Miami.  And even though this trip was more about taking it easy than exploring, I still managed to find some inspiring color and design throughout my visit.  Take a look at my travel snapshot of Miami Beach and if you haven’t already seen it, don’t forget to check out my tour of the Miami Wynwood Design Design district here & here too!
