I am dying to take a summer trip! My hubby and I have been talking about taking a road trip somewhere. As the summer days fly by, our aspirations have gotten less and less grand. It started as a road trip to the Grand Canyon (I’ve never been) and has become, “hmm….maybe we can squeeze in a weekend trip to the coast”–which, really would be heavenly and just as welcome. The last few days I have been torturing myself looking at various destinations online. While a trip to some tropical paradise would be lovely, it’s not going to happen this year. BUT–there are some cool things closer to home and I think maybe we should venture west to Marfa!
Everyone who’s been to Marfa, Texas loves it–and why not? Great landscapes (with Mystery Lights!), great art, cool places to stay, and a Prada store that it’s impossible to do any damage in because it is sealed.
We worked with Liz Lambert on some furniture for her Hotel St. Cecilia and I’d love to check out her Marfa digs at El Cosmico. Their website describes it as “part vintage trailer, yurt and teepee hotel and campground, part creative lab, greenhouse and amphitheatre – a community space that fosters and agitates artistic and intellectual exchange.” If that’s not inspiration, I don’t know what is. But really…I just want to spend the night in an El Cosmico teepee.
