Lately Loving: Black & White Photography

These days I'm opting for simplicity over adornment, serene instead of excited. A beautiful black and white photograph (simply framed no less) captures this sense perfectly for me. 

These two spaces are stripped down to nothing but a sense of balance, tranquility, and honesty.

...and I love them for that.

I agree, our own homes are so constant to us that they should be serene, and leave the flashiness to hotels and public spaces for our more transient presence. That dress photo is lovely. Merry Christmas, Crystal, and thanks for your many informative, entertaining and beautiful posts.

I love black & white photos, I'm looking for a bunch of them right now to do a gallery wall in my entry. The dress print is lovely...

Simple request: I'm going to need you to drive your cute little self to Klahanie when you're home and fix my living room. Not so much fix, as just do something and put something on the walls. That would be great.

Merry Xmas Crystal!!!!
