INSPIRATION: Black on Black Tile



Ever since I saw this image I've been obsessed with putting hexagon tile on the floor of my vestibule. Which I have now. I've never had one before. I didn't know what to do with it. I didn't even know what it was called.

And while trying to decide what color grout I wanted to use I found so many beautiful combinations of black tile with black grout - it's so minimal and understated - especially when the tile is matte. It creates such a great tonal texture.

Smoky Quartz


I'm obsessed with this giant smoky quartz at Ritual Ritual - it must weigh at least fifty pounds!

DIY PROJECT: Vintage Doorknobs


Last weekend we refinished our house's original vestibule door. While Patrick was sanding off the layers of old paint and adding a few new coats we repainted the hardware and replaced the knobs with some crackled porcelain knobs that I found the weekend before.
