I love spaces that feel like a deep, relaxing exhale. The kind that are comfortable and encourage lingering.

The darker tones feel elevated and offer depth and character in a way a white space can’t. I’ve rounded up some of favourites below. What do you think?

I like so many of you I have spent the last few weeks reading, learning and reflecting.
