Blacks and greys...

Now that it's Autumn and heading towards Winter, I like to introduce darker, more muted shades to my home, all of which, I think, conjure up a sense of cosiness but with an understated elegance too...liking all the images below..a lot!











Hope you liked these images...all from Tinek. I am enjoying a day off today - hurray!! Got my hair cut and did a spot of shopping :) I have a nice family weekend to look forward to now...my Mam turned 70 last weekend and we are all getting together to celebrate! Whatever you are doing, I hope you enjoy your weekend. Martina xx

Great images Martina, I really love that black cabinet with the glassware, it looks really smart. Hope you have a great weekend, always good to have long weekends : )

I love these. My sensibilities head in the same sort of direction this time of year. I seek black accents, earthy tones, vintage or handmade things. Wish we lived closer together--wouldn't we have fun shopping?!! xoxo Gigi

Me too...I'm starting to crazy darker, cozier in all sorts of ways. I just LOVE that black dresser with all the black crockery and accessories--big wow! :o) Lovely collection of styles here today, Martina... Happy Weekend ((HUGS))

I'm glad I'm not alone in my grey/black tendencies in the cooler months! Something about that color palette makes me want to don a sweater and snuggle up! :)

Thanks for sharing the beauty!
