Throwing Shade | Dark Inside

12/8/2016 |

Our COLLECTIVE worship of space is no secret. And since we air said worship with such frequent public declarations, we needn't bore you with the details of our multi-faceted love of design or the contentment we find in creating those spaces that so perfectly suit the people inside. Instead, today we wish to convey a particularly zoomed focus for those spaces that find a way to "throw shade" in the most magnificent of ways. A well-curated, dark space can elevate our disposition and weaken our knees. We offer praise to the lighter side of design, too--Scandinavian, clean, sunny scenes certainly warrant devotion--but these wintery days make us want to relish in the opposite. The soft, yellow glow of a heavily dimmed bulb and the flickering fire of dripping candles and their fast-dancing shadows. A cloak of coziness that beckons for melodies of worn vinyl, a favorite spirit poured tall, and a fully-splayed hardback held captivatingly close. It's an escape from the stir brought on by day, those moody spots. Be it a lounge, library, or loo, we're devoted disciples of a dimly-lit locale.
