ROOM OF THE WEEK :: 10.30

Romain Ricard © site internet book travail décoration

In honor of Halloween, I thought it only appropriate to hunt down a dark and moody dwelling for this week’s Room of the Week… The living room of this home being my favorite. Essential to the balance of charcoal walls and an abundance of black and white is the addition of lighter woods, and cozier textures. […]

ONE ROOM INSPIRATION :: DARK + PREPPY

gingham study_1

Ok, I know. Dark and preppy aren’t normally words you put together. But maybe that’s why I’ve always been so into this gingham-covered room for so long now… It’s a little bit traditional, a little bit badass. I mean, it takes guts to cover an entire room with gingham, after all. And I love the […]

    I love dark & preppy – it’s kind of more like country club or a hunt room. I always remember a quote I read in a magazine that said ‘one thing overdone is kind of like not overdoing it’. I always tell myself that! :)

BLACK WALLS + PINK BLOOMS

domino magazine black and brass bar

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 […]

    I did a post on this recently. I love love love the look of black walls, in editorials. I think in real life application it could be hard to pull off unless you had the luxury of space and ability to completely redecorate. I’m still working on the man for a black blue hue for our bedroom wall…he says it’ll be cave-like. We’ll see how wins ;) great post!

    love black walls! we painted our bathroom, walls+ceiling, a midnight charcoal and it’s amazing with all the typical washroom whites. of course, our entire house is whites and grays and blacks :)

    I’m such a sucker for a beautifully thought out, black interior. Blossoms just make it all the more dreamy. Definitely on my to-do list. ♥︎

    I’m there. Just did a mostly black/grey kitchen…and you know…it feels so right!! I use dishes (my downfall) to give color spots here there and EVERYWHERE! Yay! franki

    no joke I just wrote about this too! I always thought I was a white/cream/neutral kind of gal – but I am really digging darker accent walls these days. I really am toying with the idea of painting a black wall – hope I get enough guts to go through with it. we are totally on the same page with this.

    I’ll admit I’m not one for dark spaces, but I completely agree the pink softens these dramatic spaces. I could do black walls and a peony colored couch :)

COLOR BUZZ :: BLACK + YELLOW

yellow dining chairs eclectic dining room

Black and yellow is not a palette to be messed with. These colors always create a strong, graphic moment, no matter how they’re used. Most of us may avoid wearing the two together, for fear of a bumblebee effect. Inside, the impact can be overwhelming. But done just right? The two can make for striking […]

    LOVE the Gilles and and Boissier apartment…. my favourite part is the graphic pattern on the walls – hand painted!

GET THE LOOK :: BRIGHT NEW YEAR

6403642777_6c8448f996_o

Happy New Year’s ladies! It’s Cristina from Fuji Files and I’m looking to start the year in an ensemble that is as bright and optimistic as I’m feeling. So, what better color than yellow? My winter wardrobe is primarily (ok, entirely) made up of black pieces, so a bit of yellow is going to pack […]

    As a former blackaholic, let me warn you that once you go BRIGHT you never go back. I can barely wear dark colors at all since my reformation. :-) Love the yellow maxi, too fun!

    I love the look of yellow. It’s such a bright, beautiful color that adds life to any look. My mom has always worn bright colors, and it’s only after years of wearing all black and gray that I’m finally listening to her!

    Thanks for the style inspirations!

    Amazing! (and slightly spooky) I just wrote a blog about the black and yellow look yesterday! You’ve beat me to posting it ;)

    Very good look! I definitely want a yellow maxi now
