Maybe it’s the nasty state of the economy, or just my 14 year old inside voice screaming “gothy subculture!”, but lately I’ve been really attracted to all things anachronistic (victorian/edwardian), architectural, and glamorous – with a little touch of “spooky”. Many people who view this inspiration board may be surprised that it’s not a total blackout – there are peachy-pinks, red, and even white in the mix. Just because it’s “dark glamour” doesn’t mean “only black”! It’s a feeling or idea, don’t take it too literally.
