A quick overnighter to South Beach, Miami, which reminded me of my time living in Mexico.  I was speaking Spanish on Ocean Drive and loving the “see and be seen” mentality, which of course makes for great people watching!

The Guardian Building in downtown Detroit is a testament to gorgeously excessive pattern & color combinations, blending Art Deco & Aztec style.  I am a huge fan or Art Deco; probably has something to do with my love for symmetry & patterns.  What makes this building so different is its Aztec influence…the colors and patterns are unlike any I have seen in other Deco-style buildings.
