News, Top Life

This past September, Denise McGaha traveled to the land of paella, Gaudi, and age-old marble as one of the six 2015 Trendspotters.

Her trip to Spain was filled to with inspiration from her surroundings. Dark, moody color palettes with hints of a shimmer are on-trend in Denise’s hometown of Dallas.  It’s not surprising that she was drawn to these elements throughout her travels!

Take a glimpse of Spain through Denise’s eyes:

The elements Denise noticed throughout Spain impacted her contributions at the Cosentino headquarters in Almeria, Spain.

“Texture is everywhere here, from the marble clad town square to the ancient stonewalls – this inspiration is something I want to see represented in the 2015 Trendspotter designs.”

Denise found that working with the Trendspotters resulted in so much more than design – she’s developed the unparalleled resource of life-long friendships with like-minded professions.

“This team is beyond talented and the way we all worked together was unheard of in the design industry.  Collaboration at its best!”
