While I’m mostly in the habit of featuring light and airy spaces around here, the truth is that moody greys are what I’m living in this time of year. Up in Seattle this week has been particularly dark and dreary. Last week’s crisp (and frigid!) sunshine feels like it was months ago.

So when I happened upon these beautiful, dark photos by The Future Kept, I felt drawn into them…

Based in East Sussex, Jeska & Dean’s shop is filled with a selection of beautiful handmade goods, many of which seem to be inspired or discovered by their travels. And while their little online storefront is lovely, I have to admit that it was their journal that really drew me in.

I’m utterly obsessed with this kitchen. The perfect combination of modern updates and traditional English country.  The elongated subway tile with dark grout is striking. The home was designed by Field Day Studio whose portfolio of projects has quite the range and very fun. Worth a check out!

The images styled and shot by the couple make me realize why it is I crave timeworn pieces so much. They add a coziness to a space that even in the most dreary weather offers up warmth.

I’m noting this intense mustard green for future use. It’s bold but timeless in its own way.

Have you noticed how that dark teal green keeps surfacing in these spaces? My favorite color.

And, of course, a few favorite selections from their shop…
