Monochromatic Monday: Chocolate & Peonies

pink_black_inspiration_Board

I checked the calendar last night and realized, yikes! Valentine’s Day is only two weeks away! Although this holiday always seems to sneak up on me, I do love the frilly romance and proliferation of chocolate that defines V-day. So, let the color inspiration, crafting ideas and indulgent dessert recipes begin! Today’s board is more about rich, dark chocolate than sugary candy hearts; a lush bunch of peonies on the table for a sophisticated candlelit dinner at home. I love the contrast of girly pink set against a moody dark background…rather sexy, no? Stay tuned for lots more Valentine’s planning ideas over the next couple of weeks. And let me know if y’all have any great gift ideas for guys – I’m having a total mental block on what to get my honey this year!

    Lovely!!

    May i ask for some help Camille? I’ve been wanting to DIY the Jane Eyre cover for my penguin edition for a while now… could you possibly make a DIY post for it? Or have you posted something similar that I haven’t come across with?

    Thank You!

    Hav a beautiful week!

        That’s exactly what I meant! I love to have books around the apartment but sometimes it’s hard to have them on display because of their “looks”… Did you have something in mind? I’m sure it could be fabulous!

        Oh, and the book from the link is not exactly the one I have, I think its’s smaller but I can’t find it online!

        Thank You Camille!

      Agreed – it’s amazing how the darker backgrounds take the pale pinks from overly girly to so sophisticated!

    Loving this blog post despite not being a big lover of all things pink. It’s a very glamorous stylish moodboard you’ve put together here.
