Tone on Tone at Home

I wear a lot of black. I wear enough black to induce a jaw drop on days I’m wearing colour (from memory, she actually dropped everything and ran across the office yelling in excitement). I wear black because I’m actually awful at pairing colours— that’s why monochrome is my jam. I love the textures that come to play when you’re working with a monochrome palette but I’ve always felt like it’s hard to pull off the tone-on-tone vibes at home without it feeling contrived. Is it just me or does the tone-on-tone trend feel exclusive to highly-curated product photography? You tell me.

A visit to Uncle Tony's Loft

We met Uncle Tony for the first time at his loft in the village of NYC. He and his wife fell into the category of "cool couple" the second we met them and stepped into their place.

Uncle Tony, an architect, designed and furnished the place with furniture he built - yup, everything from the counters, the book shelves, the bar, to the partition walls and the desks.  His wife on the other hand, a painter, adorned their loft with her own floral paintings.   There was a surprise behind every corner. We thought this was a must share!

The coolest bit of all... their giant removable swing.  
I wish I had a swing in my apt!
