Darkly Romantic

As I prepare for my grand opening I've been utterly immersed in the haunting and beautiful garden of Dr. Rappaccini. Perhaps that explains my obsession with vibrant flowers against inky black...



There's something transformative about the combination. 

Modern interiors get moody.

And even the simplest dresses seem to mimic works of art.

Oh, so romantic! Makes me want to transform myself- maybe with a box of black hair dye and one of these.

Those flower arrangements are breathtaking, especially the one with the peonies! And don't even get me started on that incredible black living room...WOW!

Oooh the floral hair pieces are gorgeous, do you know of anything similar in a more funemployed-friendly price range? I want a party now...

Nelya... Love the modern take on the theme! Thanks for the link :)

Sierra... I wish! The Heart line by ban.dõ is all under $50, but is definitely more cute than couture. There are many Etsy sellers doing similar work, so I think it's a matter of sifting through the good and bad! (Side note: I vote for a cocktail party.)

I love the modern interior in that photo. It is very cozy yet modern.
