Ever since I heard founder Ben speak at Alt Summit last week, I’ve been on even more of a Pinterest kick than usual. I’ve been stumbling across such beautiful things, I think I’m going to burst if I don’t share some of them with you here. So, I’m kicking off a new little series called Pinned Down, where I’ll be posting about my favorite discoveries for no other reason than that they’re jaw-droppingly beautiful. Today’s roundup is all about deep dark espresso and creamy latté (can you tell I’ve cut out coffee for a while?) I love the limited color palette featuring strong contrasting shades that are almost more effective than a morning java jolt. Keep reading for more (and their original sources), and if you’re not already, follow me on Pinterest here

    You are so brave for giving up coffee! I can’t do it.. I’m too addicted! But holy wow these images are strikingly beautiful. Great idea for a series! xo

    It’s coffee week at la Domestique, so I’m loving your espresso inspiration. Wouldn’t it be great to have an espresso station at home like Martha?
