Get ready for take off because with this issue, our third annual Travel Issue, we explore that mystical thing that happens when we pack our bags, leave our homes, and see the world. We traveled to far-flung locales from Rio de Janeiro and London to Calgary and Paris, casting a spotlight on international design. As we were graciously welcomed into each of the beautiful homes, we observed that no matter where we are in the world, we can’t help but define home without taking into consideration our surroundings. Miriam Beard says it best: “Travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living.” We learned too, and perhaps most profound of all, that no matter where we are in the world, travel is a state of mind.

With this issue, we hope you indulge your sense of wanderlust today and always!
