Passionate Kisses

As we head into this Valentine's Day weekend, I wanted to share these photos of tender and passionate kisses perfectly captured in black and white. I adore these moments stolen while out in public...

As much as I love these quiet, gentle moments at home.

A Siren Song

Last spring, I mentioned how although green was the accent color I'd used throughout many rooms in E's and my house, I had found myself craving blue. Living between two places, our house and apartment, I chose to move forward with incorporating blue into our interiors through the purchase of a blue velvet sofa for our apartment.

Maybe a story for another time, but bringing this specific piece into our lives was undoubtedly meant to be, and even after months of living with it, our sofa still makes me smile daily. The blue. The velvet. The tufting. The shape. I've been head over heels in L-O-V-E. I have grown more and more excited to settle into a new home where I've planned to make blue a prominent color in our main living space on account of this beauty.

Wrapped up in my new and exciting love, I've been ready to leave green behind without a second glance. And then I came upon this photo.

Homes & Gardens

Just when I thought I was over it, this room sings a siren song beckoning me back into the arms of green. I love everything about this space from the various shades of green to the beautiful framed botanical grouping.

Looking through my saved images, I next uncovered these photos that also speak the praises of green-- specifically, a lovely mint hue different than the accents threaded through our house, which may be exactly why these spaces turned my head.

I have no intention of being a fickle lover to our blue sofa or my plans for its future home, but these images are a gentle reminder-- there is room enough in my heart to still have affection for my old flame, green.
