European Vacation, continued: Rome!

Here are some more travel photos from my family's trip to Europe this August. After beginning our vacation in Florence and Tuscany, we then headed to Italy's capital city of Rome. This experience was a wonderful way to wind down an especially hectic summer, and gather some new ideas for Mirth Studio's new upcoming collection this autumn.

Above: Inspiration overload! So many breathtaking tiles at Basilica di San Giovanni in Laterano, as posted to my Instagram account.

Major floor envy for these bands of tile in hues of rich blues and turquoise.
