While I’m not sure I’ll ever tire of a tone on tone, neutral space, I do like to inject colour into the spaces I’m working on from time to time. And when it comes to choosing a colour to add, I invariable end up leaning towards jewel tones. In particular, those that look a little weathered and worn. Like they’ve been around for a while. Nothing adds soul to a space like something with history and these weather jewel tones add a depth and richness that I can’t get enough of. I’ve rounded up some of the spaces and colours I’m most inspired by below.
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?
It’s been a month since George Floyd was murdered. And while we still have miles and miles to go, I am hopeful. The world feels a little different and the movement feels stronger and deeper than it ever has.
I like so many of you I have spent the last few weeks reading, learning and reflecting. In my exploration I’ve come across a number of captivating black designers and creators that I’d like to share with you. Although I’m not entirely sure what change looks like, I know I want to be a part of it. I hope you enjoy.
