Travel has always been a catalyst for my decorating inspiration back home, just like these incredible blues of the mediterranean sea. 💙💦 visiting unique and beautiful places, such as the balearic islands, inspires me to bring the feeling of my adventures home by redecorating my spaces as a nod to where i’ve stayed. 🎨 for example, the colors of the ocean in this picture i took in menorca, spain influenced the palette i used to decorate my beach house back home in america. 🏖🏡 if you’re looking for unique stays around the world, be sure to check out booking.com! #ad#makeyousmilestyle@bookingcom

Press ▶️ & 🔈on to watch a drone selfie with my colombia crew! 👯♂️🇨🇴👯♀️ then, read the personal story behind it...
there were many special moments during the five days we spent in beautiful colombia with @nespressousa. one of them came on the third day when don ruben (centre in the green stripy shirt) welcomed us all into his home & onto his coffee farm.
after he generously spent the day showing us the passion and commitment he had to growing coffee on his farm, i decided to fly my drone so he could see his home from the sky. no words were needed between us as don ruben's eyes widened with amazement and pride while he saw his coffee farm from the sky for the first time. the emotion in his eyes matched the humble, hardworking and passionate approach he so clearly took to his life and work.
as the drone soared in the sky he proudly showed me his parent’s house further down the mountain, his coffee trees and the perimeter of his farm. it was a moment where technology was able to connect two people who spoke different languages. it's unexpected experiences such as this that make me find travel so addictive and inspiring.
and that's why i wanted to include this moment on my feed - as a way to say thank you.
thank you: to don ruben for his hospitality and spirit (and delicious coffee that i've been drinking for years - crazy to think i've now met one of the farmers who grows it!); to the team at nespresso for our continued partnership, for inviting me to share my experiences with your coffee, and in turn inviting me to understand its providence, to experience your passion for coffee and the care you take in the communities it touches;
to the teams in nyc and colombia who worked so hard to organise this incredible experience; to everyone on the trip who i shared this experience with - it so much fun; and to all of you for so kindly following and supporting my work.
i realize how fortunate i am to see these remote corners of the world, and i promise to keep working hard to create the best content i can for you guys. i always hope and aim to make you feel as though you are right there with me as i experience these #makeyousmilestyle moments! 💙
During our time in colombia we stayed in the beautiful town of jardín, which means ‘garden’. 🇨🇴🌿 the preserved colonial architecture, brightly painted doors that lined every street (pinch and zoom to see! 🌈), and the andes mountains that surrounded jardín made it a stunning place to stay. 😍 i can’t wait to share more from this incredible trip with @nespressousa in the coming weeks! 🤸🏻♂️ in the meantime, see an aerial video of jardín in my story! 🚁 #makeyousmilestyle
