Black Walls + Pink Blooms

There’s such a mood change this time of year here in the Pacific Northwest. The mornings start off foggy and quite chilly, the streets are a bit more quiet – save for a few sunny weekends. But, maybe most noticeable in my world lately is a return to muted colors.

Yesterday when we were shooting my apartment I couldn’t help thinking how ‘spring’ it looks in here. Bursts of coral and aqua feel so out of place in our current fall palette of golden browns and greys. Not to worry – I certainly won’t be changing up my interior (at least too much) to fit in more with the season, but I have been feeling a tug towards a bit more of this lately…

Black black black. Not surprising, since half my wardrobe is this color. But we’re talking all over, cloak yourself in this goodness black…

The funny thing I’ve noticed about so many interiors that feature this color? Pink blossoms. Apparently they are a requirement. Perhaps to allow the spaces to feel a bit less masculine? But why stop there when you could have this!?

Yes, pink flowers, but also a dusty pink sofa. With warm wood detail. And a freaking amazing chandelier. I’m sold.
