Galápagos Islands Inspiration

The Galápagos Islands, diverse in plants and animals, are intriguing to many, including travelers, nature-lovers, and scientists. Its landscapes and beaches in particular have a cyclical geology—formed by volcano then being submerged back into the sea. The texture and color has become an inspiration for our Owner/Buyer Shobhan.
