Ttoday is the first serious cold day of Fall here in Amsterdam and it’s time for some Dark Decor. As the days get darker, so is my mood (not literally fortunately). But my eye is drawn more and more towards the cosy, dark moods seen floating around on the net. Dark decor, with grey or black walls (and even dark ceilings!) is the new white, if you ask me. So get some paintrollers and prepare your house for a dark, warm and cosy winter.

Vvandaag is de eerste echte koude dag van de herfst hier in Amsterdam.  Het wordt eerder donker, en mijn humeur past zich hier bereidwillig bij aan (gelukkig niet letterlijk). Zoals de dagen donkerder worden, zo valt mijn oog ook meer en meer op de donkere sfeerbeelden die op het net ronddwarrelen. Donkere interieurs, met grijs/zwarte muren (en soms zelfs donkere plafonds!) is het nieuwe wit als je het mij vraagt. Dus haal je verfrollers van zolder en bereid je huis voor op een donkere, warme en gezellige winter.
