Welcome to the Elsie Green Podcast where our host Andie and her guests discuss design, travel, fashion, beauty and other beautiful things in life.

In episode 4, Laurie and Andie talk about finding inspiration while traveling.  


Listen to the full episode here.

All the Elsie Green girls (and boys) love to travel near and far.  And many of our best ideas for the shop, for our photography or for our own lives have come from some of that travel.  Read on for links and sources from the episode.

Visit the Newport Mansions to soak up some inspiration. Do not miss the staff quarters - they're my favorite.

Laurie's little Leica D-Lux point and shoot is a great portable camera that is smaller and lighter than a DSLR and takes better photos than the iPhone (sorry Apple).  The National Camera Exchange  is a good source to find a high quality camera at a good price.  

The hardware store in Marseille we mention is Maison EmpereurThe rental can be found here.  The paint color is BM Bittersweet Chocolate.
