Since arriving back to LA after Christmas break I’ve literally found myself giddy with excitement.
I’m used to freezing my butt off in January swearing at the cold and darkness, getting depressed and dreaming about warmer places. Instead now the early school mornings I used to swear over are a joy. The insanely nice 70 degree sunny weather arrives after a cool dewy night like the perfect present every day. Driving to the school bus in the early morning seeing the fog lift over the palm trees and the mountains I feel enormous gratitude, and I realize it was perhaps the best decision I ever made to move here. Having grown up in Sweden and lived in cold areas my entire life, this is such an amazing new life to wrap your head around.
Just as if the weather isn’t enough the flowers blooming right outside the door is a mini Garden of Eden. And it’s hard not to get inspired by all this natural beauty.
These flowers cover the entire area by our front door.
They make me smile.
The palm trees are so insanely majestic and cool. I’m in awe every time I pass one. If you follow me on instagram you know I’m obsessed! (INSTAGRAM@JILL SORENSEN)
These flowers cover the path to my car, seriously as the fall off the trees. So I pick them up and leave them in the car on the breakfast table. They are literally everywhere now.
The garage/studio is functioning as a temporary office with flowering trees all around.
You want to bring all that happiness in.

Walking the dogs in the neighborhood I find myself taking pictures of plants.
All that I see around me now inspires me. And will undoubtedly make it’s way in to my designs.
It’s impossible not to be affected by this.
