{inspiration: black + white}


When there's a moment to spend sorting through the abyss that is the closet, often find myself wandering away to do other things -- sometimes difficult to pare down and part with things, infinitely easier to sort through the hundreds of photographs in inspiration folders -- and happened upon these lovely shots of black + white -- the best of both worlds: bright airiness contrasted with bold elegance . . .

Lovely images! ;)

Such stunning images! I did a black and white story a while ago but it wasn't nearly as glamorous as yours! Love the lace bedspread!

Talk about sexy. This is a gorgeous spread. And I am just dying for a soak in that luxuriously beautiful bath. Thank you for the fantasy... I will be thinking of it all day in the garden.
