I’m not sure what it is, but lately I’m inextricably drawn to the darker colours of the spectrum. Maybe it’s the shortening days and the colder weather that’s just around the corner but I could quite happily build a little cocoon and hibernate until spring.
It would have to be a stylish little nest you understand. Comfy sofas, piled high with cushions. Soft and plump and covered in sensuous fabrics such as silk and velvet, mohair and fur. There would have to be warmth. Flickering fires and candles to blur the edges between night and day.
And I’m more and more drawn to the deeply sensuous colour purple. Dark and dramatic and very, very glamorous. Especially with black.
As with everything, it needs a balance to stop it tipping over the edge into dark oblivion. It needs some glossy shine, some silver, some glass, some mirrors, some reflection.
Wake me up next year.
