BLACK ON BLACK

January 24, 2014

back clothing

Constantly inspired by monochrome colors and the possibilities and challenges they pose in putting an outfit together. There are so many textures and combinations that can make a simple black outfit look pulled together and stunning. Somewhere in the last year I found that 90% of my wardrobe consists of black, white, or grey pieces and I am completely okay with that.

I feel like society is quick to judge a girl on a motorcycle, but these photos beg to differ. You can still be a babe and ride a bike.

ALLANDALE HOUSE

My love for A-frames runs deep and when I saw this masterpiece by architect William O’Brien Jr. my heart nearly exploded. Allandale House is the perfect mixture of modern architecture and the outdoors complete with a wine cellar, garage, and library. The home is actually three separate A-frame entities merged together to create a beautiful combination of architectural beauty and functionality. The western A-frame portion contains the cellar, garage, and library while the middle A-frame serves as the living area with two floors of bedrooms and bathrooms. The eastern A-frame has the living room, dining room, and kitchen area. While the house serves primarily as a vacation get-away, I would give up almost anything to call this place home.

Today, I’m feeling inspired by the patterns and color schemes of these textile pieces. I’m a sucker for all things dark, so it’s definitely no surprise that I am in love with their deep hues and geometric patterns. I’ll take one of each.
