Inspiration in India

The Rinfret blog has been on hiatus as we have been so busy here with lots of fabulous project installations (we promise to show you photos in an upcoming blog) and work, work, work -- but our real excuse is that we have been holding out for Cindy Rinfret to return from her trip to India, as we knew no other blog post could compare to whatever adventures Cindy had in India.

The colors, sights and sounds of India are stimulating, exhausting, but most of all inspiring. As they say, a picture tells 1,000 words, so we'll leave it to the images to tell the story...

Cindy and her group from Private Journeys in front of the iconic Taj Mahal.

Striking poses at the Taj Mahal is a requisite for any trip to India!

Cindy speaking with the Dalai Lama (well, maybe not THE Dalai Lama, but his right hand man).

Adorable and curious schoolchildren.Amazing architecture.

Some of the gorgeous rooms that Cindy and her travel companions from Private Journeys enjoyed:

This is a TENT! India definitely knows how to "rough it" in style.

Incredible design inspiration abounds in India...

More breathtaking interiors in the Taj Mahal.

Even the animals in India are decorated!

Cindy brought a piece of India back with her with beautiful pashminas, boxes, accessories -- some of which we have for sale at Rinfret Home & Garden.
