Cobblestone on the road…

Posted on September 25, 2019

  “ I dream my Painting and I paint my dream.” Vincent Van Gogh.        For us at Cobblestone Living this Van Gogh quote takes on a different meaning….“I dream my travels and I travel my dreams”. Inspiration allows us to voyage to many different places and seasons in our lives. A huge source of this creativity comes from our travels. Colors, textures, styles and layers mix with sunsets, train rides, highways and history to weave a beautiful foundation for each collection. A walk over a bridge in Venice can provide the perfect vision of bleu which is magical, mysterious and unexpected. When you are alive in your heart the creativity you feel and the dreams you have begin to race through your…

Falling for Vintage

Sometimes one must travel light in order to travel intentionally. Stepping away from the comfort and companionship to travel as “one” incorporates a completely different dynamic. As our world becomes smaller and smaller in part to the conveniences from multiple electronic devises it is easy not to feel totally alone or is it? Do we really want to? “Traveling light” by oneself and using limited screen time really can make…

Travel Often, Travel Pretty

Posted on January 1, 2019

A side trip to Venice was soon to be the start of an even bigger adventure. An afternoon chat that began as our al fresco lunch was winding down would eventually lead us to Italy and France. The best part of traveling with someone you have known for a while is discovering there is even more to learn. While our travels had taken us to Paris and Provence, Florence and Venice opened up an opportunity to make a voyage into a vision. Cobblestone Living was created because travel is that special. From British author Alain de Botton “The pleasure we derive from journeys is perhaps dependent more on the mindset with which we travel than on the destination we travel to.” For a founder…
