While writing this post we realized January is, in some ways, a very obvious transition month and in other ways a not-so-noticeable, stuck-in-between type of month. Yes, it’s exciting, it’s new, goals are set and the playfulness of spring, with it’s inherent energy of “new life,” is just around the corner. Yet, it’s still pretty dull outdoors, skies are gray, the air bitter and we still have this urge to hunker down and cuddle in. Weird, right?! But instead of trying to define it, we’re embracing this push and pull phase! Hints of color and metallics excite us for what’s ahead, while moody vibes and textural layers are keeping us grounded in the moment! Here’s what we’ve got a crush on lately…


We’ve got a crush on exposed beams and painted stump seating in bold black and white…


On the upcoming flurry of fashion during New York’s Fall 2015 fashion week…


On Bethany Gosvener and her graphite drawings so tall that they practically reach the ceiling in her moody studio…


On pops of color, whimsy, drama, metallics, and light fixtures that have more strings than a French quartet…


This pretty food styling. Who knew grilling spices could look so dainty and beautiful…


On this pivotal Joan Didion for Celine campaign that shakes up what style really means…


And on wise words that remind to dabble in everything that excites us, to try new things, surprise ourselves and to never be so easily defined! Happy Monday, all!

    On that note – I tried to go to the original source of the picture based on the link you provided, but it only goes to the website’s homepage and not the actual page where the picture was from. It would be so great if you linked to the actual URL for those who want to see the original picture or the context of the picture.
    Love your blog!
