This post was inspired by pulling on my favourite gloves by Rose B Brown first thing Monday morning. My outfit was definitely a monochromed affair grey and black stripes and beautiful knits.
I know I have touched on these tones previously but I get drawn back time after time. I have always dressed in shades of grey and black for as long as I can remember as I feel comfortable and confident in them. So of course my Christmas jumper of choice this year is a big knitted grey number from Jigsaw and it’s sheer bliss!
My husband and I dream of building our own house one day, top of the agenda is to have charred wood cladding and concrete, a pared back interior with a colour palette to match and I’m sure if I get my way some elements of black in there too.
I do find a touch of black creates a calming effect bringing a scheme together perfectly, next room to decorate is my bedroom, at the moment a fiery red but I am sorely tempted to go dark dark dark when the paint brushes next come out.
Being a bit creative with black is a refreshing change, from patchwork quilts to painted crosses on a white background all extremely bold and effective.
You can even embrace a hint of jet in your Christmas decorations this year if you are really brave.
