Summer!!! My ABSOLUTE, no contest, hands-down favorite season of the year (the sweltering heat notwithstanding). This time, going off the beaten path to explore the raw, volcanic, lush beauty of the island of Camiguin was as refreshing to the mind as taking a dip in any one of its many waterfall pools or cold springs. Surprisingly–or maybe not–design inspiration abounded too in its rich, earthy terrain, its water-color washed seas and its faded & crumbly colonial architecture. Here are just a few of my Instagram ‘postcards’ from Camiguin…
