Fall is most definitely in the air and while I do love this time of year, up until now it’s been a bit of an anxious love – a reminder that winter is just around the corner. The angst is compounded by the fact that in recent years our falls have been so short lived and usually punctuated by a brutal snow storm.
While so much about the school year remains uncertain, one thing is for sure, it won’t look like any other before it. Whether it’s home schooling, physically distanced classes, or some hybrid of the two, kids will be home more than in previous years. Which means having a well designed space for them to learn, play and rest is more important than ever.
I love spaces that feel like a deep, relaxing exhale. The kind that are comfortable and encourage lingering. While I tend to gravitate towards shades of white and neutral palettes, lately I’ve fallen in love with dark and moody spaces. They feel captivating, like a cozy embrace. 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?
