My Design Project Manifestation


You know they say that if you ‘put it out there’ it will come?  For me it is usually those subtle thoughts that occur and reoccur where I see a result from the Uni.  Amazing how the big things that you are almost begging for, pushing for, never seem to come to fruition but like the tortoise and the hare, ‘slow and steady wins the race’…or so it was with my latest design project.

For 5 years in Tulum my life had been pretty void of design.  I nested a bit when I was preggy with my son, we painted and decorated a little to a few houses but nothing with much gusto as it never felt more than temporary.

A culmination of retreat planning, yoga practicing, hotel assessments, Tulum tourism, and providing travelers with a vacation that they design helped to define the space and most importantly, as always, what not to do…

These are some examples of the house when I stumbled upon it, in the process, and of course you can see more of the finished product (or work in progress I should say) on our Accommodations page, at Utopia’s website or check it out for yourself at one of our Upcoming Retreats (total plug!).
