Do you ever find someone on Pinterest whose pins you are constantly re-pinning until you feel a little creepy and like maybe you should find your own pins but realize they’re so good at it that you’d rather just keep on being creepy? That’s Bree for me, and most often those re-pins are of black and white decor.
You may remember Bree from the feature on her son’s room, which completely coincidentally is black and white. She takes my 1AM filterless e-mails in stride so you can imagine how happy I am that she agreed to do a guest post on… black and white decor (how did you guess??)
Bree here, from Luna + The Boy. I’m so honored to be guesting here for my favorite bare footed gal-pal, Gilit.
Today she’s got me talking Pinterest, in particular my craze for ‘black and white’. Like so many, if I didn’t have other responsibilities I could (would) spend my entire day pinning away, fantasizing about my dream home and rad little outfits for my one-year-old son, Boston.
I’m not sure what it is that draws me to those slick black and white images, perhaps I never grew out of the contrast phase as a newborn. Something about it just gets me frothing. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE colour, but prefer to use it in small doses to finish a space off and make it really pop.
Instead of overdosing on rainbows, I love the use of textures and patterns, such as; wood, matte finishes, fur (faux of course) and metals.
When re-decorating, the first thing I check off is whether it’s a happy and friendly environment for my little one grow. Though there’s also a certain design criteria I’d like it to meet too. This living space ticks all of the boxes for me.
White linen is high on my ‘favorite things’ list, there is nothing in this world nicer than waking up, wrapped in fresh white sheets with my two boys by my side. And being a co-sleeper, the ability to bleach them has certainly come in handy.
If I wasn’t a serial plant killer, and Boston didn’t enjoy eating them, I would have potted goodness in every corner of my home. Regardless of your decorating style, plants literally bring rooms to life and make a house feel more homely.
Matte black – to actually die for. There’s something uber chic and classy about it. Since spotting these on Pinterest recently, my morning OJ suddenly tastes rather average in our oh-so-common glassware.
If all of the above speaks to you and you feel like scrolling through a few more black and white images, feel free to check out my Pinterest page.
Thank you so much for sharing, Bree!
How many times did you laugh? And be honest with me, did you snort? Because I totally did. At least twice. I love Bree’s style and adore her shop, Luna and the Boy on Etsy where she sells the cutest monsters and creatures (and some jewelry!) that make the perfect gifts. You can
stalk find her on FB, Instagram, Pinterest, and Etsy.
