I’m not sure if it’s the change of seasons, but lately I’ve been craving a more neutral color palette. To satisfy my need for neutrals I revisited one of my favorite design books: Black & White (And a Little Bit in Between) by Celerie Kemble.
The book is filled with gorgeous images, but my favorites are from interior decorator (and one of my design idols), Eddie Ross. His interiors are always timeless and sophisticated but in a black and white palette they’re even more elegant.
I’m particularly envious of his collection of black and white transferware and Wedgewood jasperware. I think I might need to start my own collection!
and partner Jaithan never fail to amaze me with their artful creations. Their latest project, a window for Carleton Varney, is no exception. I think that if I passed this window on the street I’d have to grab a coffee and stay awhile to take it all in.
That’s why I admire Eddie and Jaithan so much, they really are masters of layering. Take this desk for example, doesn’t it look like its insanely chic owner just stepped away to pick up a fabric order?
Here’s a closer peek at some of the details.
P.S I’m now on the hunt for a similar toast rack for my stationery. Obsessed!
And the full window. Sigh…

My love for bright colors is well documented but pink has been a longtime favorite. Now that it’s officially summer, I’ve got pink on the mind. If the bf would let me get away with it, my caned barrel chairs would already be reupholstered in a pop of bright pink.
Here are some things that are inspiring me…
Don’t you love how fashion and design often mimick each other? If I wasn’t on a shopping ban I would scoop this Shoshanna dress up in a heartbeat. Good thing someone has a birthday coming up!
