What do you do when you are a creative team and need some inspiration?

There are many places, objects, projects, and activities that can provide inspiration. And while Pinterest is a favorite of many these days, sometimes you need to go outside and experience the world where you live.

Recently, CSG’s design team took a couple hours to seek out a little color inspiration at the Torpedo Factory in Old Town Alexandria, VA.

The Torpedo Factory is a favorite place for locals and tourists to visit here in our neighborhood just outside of D.C. The Torpedo Factory inspires thousands and is a wonderful example of art taking the place of war. Founded in 1974 in an old munitions plant, it’s home to the largest collection of publicly accessible working artist studios in the U.S.

Where will your next inspiration come from? What colors do you see out there in the world around you? We found some great stuff on our outing! Fluorescents are hot right now! Stay tuned…you may see some of these combos show up in your new pieces this summer.
