{eternity in each moment}

. . . the now softly fading rays of sunlight breaking through the overcast mornings of early november skies with melancholy evoke quiet daydreams of the always inviting combination of grey & yellow, flax & slate, silver & gold . . .











{p.s.}thursday already! hope you're having a beautiful week

How funny is it that I was trying to match a medium charcoal gray cardigan to a deep mustardy-yellow top today? I love this. :D

Yellow can so easily be over-syrupy, but tinted with gold and tempered with gray I think it is easily one of the most cheerful and calming of palettes.

* sigh * i love these colour coordinated posts of yours. i hope you don't mind me repeating it... but in my experience, they take some time and effort to put together, so it's good to get some feedback, non?

After months of color-commitment-phobia... you've helped solidify gold and grey as the color palette for my wedding next October. We're also included a rich brown and barely-there champagne pink. thanks for always being such an inspiration!
