With mounds of data at our fingertips, what we like or need should be available to us in a nanosecond. If you jump, live and breathe in this 21st century, the info about each and every one of us is simply stupendous. It’s a data explosion of unfolding trends but don’t fall too deeply into the trap of ‘this is what you want because everyone has it’. We all know there’s something more original that makes each one of us tick. Shouldn’t that be part of your overall design? You, that is, and what you really like; your personal signature. The things that make you jump, live and breathe, especially when you venture into your outdoor space.
Need to step out of virtual reality for a day or two? Consider a real honest to goodness road trip to an arboretum or a hands-on workshop to get the creative juices flowing. There’s a tangible landscape waiting for you at a moment’s notice.
Roald Dahl points us in the right direction with his profound message. “And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”
And what makes magic? It’s that originality factor. Your world is only as fascinating as you make it.
