Noir et Brun



A warm Autumn palette featuring the beautiful Liya Kebede.

Good morning! I hope that you have all had a wonderful weekend. Today is quite rainy and cool, but I can honestly feel and smell that snow is just around the corner... when the air turns especially crisp and fresh, I just know. The suspense is wonderful, and I so look forward to the first snowfall...

+ Monday's finds: a must–see: "Miss Pedigrew Lives for a Day" / a look at Stella McCartney's wonderful country retreat / a unique and interesting (renovated) boutique hotel / a cozy cashmere poncho for comfort in drizzling weather / an eclectic home full of lovely touches and surprises / a fun idea: modern family portraits / a gala event + a dramatic red dress / vintage papers: Sweet Paul / so soft... white wash inspiration / delicious: a New York City chef creates after Thanksgiving pizzas / + lastly, a chic high–waist skirt that would work seamlessly with the color inspiration shown above.

  1. Love brown and black just like I love navy and black - so sophisticated. And am with you on your Monday picks - love Miss Pedigrew (the book was in my Persephone post) and Stella McCartney's country place, bought a cashmere poncho and think Sweet Paul is one of the best designed new online magazines!!

  14. Wouldn't that cashmere poncho be dreamy? It makes me happy that you're looking forward to the snowfall :) Soon, I'll be moving into winter (after just getting out of a tough one), but right now the days are just getting longer and greener. Hard to think of winter again already, but this time it will be so Christmasy!
