Monday Musings: Black and White

Good morning miladies. So,I apologize for the radio silence last week but I promise you I had a legit excuse. I do not generally like to get incredibly personal on this blog but I lost my grandfather last week. When people reflect on ways that others touch and enrich their lives in a special way, this would have been this guy for me. My grandpa was the "ish". Men like him do not exist anymore. He was honest, loyal, courageous, positive, solid, consistent, moral and above all else, hilarious. He always did the right thing even in the face of adversity. I will miss him wholeheartedly each and every day. He was a good one. I love you always and forever Grandpa. Just to give you an idea of where I get my fashion forward looks from, look at how stylish he was even back in the day. Can we say Mad Men? 

And in the spirit of my grandfather, he would want me to get back to work and that is exactly what we will do. 
I can tell you something I am totally digging right now and I can also predict this is going to be THE new big trend in home decor. Black and white. Y'all, I am feeling it. I think it faded for awhile but I this monochromatic color scheme is going to come back in a big big way. Mark my words. It is just the right amount of classic and simplicity juxtaposed with an edge. Yin meets yang. Just look at these spaces and try and tell me differently. I dare you.

  3. SO sorry for your loss. Reading this made me miss my own grandpa so, so much. I just painted my home office black and white and am decorating with chrome and brass accents. Pictures to come once I get all the furniture back in order (and de-clutter some), but it is looking mighty fine! Cheers! Ana (www.threegoodgrapes.blogspot.com.

  6. I am so sorry to hear about your grandfather. He was indeed stylish and very "Mad Men". Black White is timeless and has always been part of my design. The combination can be so glamorous and regency. In fact I am hosting a Hollywood Regency BW pillow giveaway by CC DeuxVie at http://www.amdolcevita.com/2013/07/giveaway-ccdeuxvie-pillow.html. Take care.
