I love travel because it opens my mind and allows me to expand my horizons. Even on business travel I try to appreciate my surroundings a bit more these days and take it all in.

On I a recent business trip to London I was fortunate to have afternoon tea with my clients at the gallery at Sketch which was a treat for my senses. Artwork by David Shrigley adorns the walls. The décor in the galley is all pink and glamourous with pink velvet banquets and gold accents. The Interior design is by my favorite India Mahdavi who break boundaries but in good taste. What she creates could turn garish but her innate sense of style makes it beautiful and fresh. Her pink creation is a perfect contrast for the stark art that hangs throughout the gallery.

The afternoon tea was wonderful with tea sandwiches, scones and pastries. Plus the service was friendly and flawless. I had to have earl grey tea with a sip of rose champagne to match the décor!
