Understated

As you know, I love interiors with floods of bright colors, shiny surfaces and rich fabrics. But on this particularly gloomy rainy Tuesday, I’m drawn to spaces that are a bit more understated. These have a calm, soft, warm aura to them that just works for a day like today. (Ok, so a few sparkly chandeliers snuck in. But I love that juxtaposition, don’t you?)

Please don’t stop the rain

Midnight in Paris rain rainy day weekend Friday

Just kidding. I’d like it to stop sometime. Although I’m kind of enjoying it at the moment. My Friday rainy day song is “Please Don’t Stop the Rain” by James Morrison. Go listen to it. That album is perfect music for today.

Days like this remind me of the fall I spent in Paris. Ducking in and out of little shops in an undiscovered neighborhood. Spending an afternoon watching people pass by and watching the water fall down the windows from inside my regular corner cafe. Secretly loving the grayness of the city.

I also still haven’t seen Midnight in Paris. I must do that.

Let it fall, let it fall, let it fall.
