light and dark.

M and I have begun dreaming up our apartment, and yesterday (in a haze of post-work-day-and-buffalo-wing-supper exhaustion) we discussed the kind of look we were going for.

We talked about going ‘light’ –

and going ‘dark’.

I kind of like both, what do you think? Of course, the whole apartment doesn’t have to be the same color palette and we can have a ‘dark’ kitchen and a ‘light’ living room, for instance. :)

p.s. we’ve been dreaming of kitchen islands. Hoho.

p.p.s. Oh, and I want to live here, where they have gorgeous light, and cafes like this! Love.x

    I vote for the “light” look. Space looks bigger, sunnier and happier! But too much “white” is a bit bland huh. Can’t go very wrong if you’ve the essentials of flowers, frames, art and books!

    kitty and celest, yeah i agree… too much white gets too bland but i suppose a mix is good :)

    unfortch, white unpolished wood is very expensive and hard to maintain. so i don’t think that’ll be an option :( concrete floors too, they change color quickly and need to be repaved or whatever.
