ONE KINGS LANE

PASSAGE + LIGHT

THE FULL MOON IN CAPRICORN LAST NIGHT BRINGS TO SURFACE THE CARDINAL SIGN'S INHERENT ENERGY: GROUNDING, RESPONSIBLE, AND AMBITIOUS. CERTAIN THEMES IN THE DAYS OR WEEKS PRIOR REACH THEIR RELEASE POINT DURING A FULL MOON AND TEND TO OPEN DOORS FOR TRANSITION AND CHANGE. THESE OBJECTS REPRESENT OPPORTUNITY, CURIOSITY, AND SUBSTANTIALITY BY WAY OF PASSAGE AND LIGHT. 

CURRENT MOOD

WITH THE SUMMER SOLSTICE APPROACHING, THE SUN FINALLY RETURNING, AND NOT TO MENTION A HALF BLOOD MOON LAST WEEKEND, THIS WEATHER HAS ME VIBING ON BRIGHT SPACES WITH PATTERN, HINTS OF BURNT ORANGE (WHETHER IT BE FROM TEXTILES OR HARDWOOD), NATURAL FIBER RUGS, LAYERED SPACES, AND LARGE SCALE ARTWORK. I'M LOVING IT ALL AND LOOKING FORWARD TO MY SUMMER PROJECTS.

EQUINOX OBESESSIONS

ONE OF THE BEST THINGS ABOUT LIVING ON THE EAST COAST IS SEASONS, AND FALL IS BY FAR MY FAVORITE. THE COOLER WEATHER, CHANGING LEAVES, AND EVEN THE RAIN ARE WELCOMING STARTS TO A NEW BEGINNING. THE EQUINOX, FOLLOWED BY THE TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE OF A SUPERMOON OR "BLOODMOON", MADE FOR A MAGICAL INTRODUCTION TO THE SEASON THIS YEAR.  I LOVE THE FACT THAT STYLE AND TASTE TRANSITION WITH THE WEATHER, AND FALL MAKES ME WANT TO HOLE UP IN MY NEST WITH GIGANTIC BEAUTIFUL BOOKS, HOT TEA, CANDLES, AND HANDMADE CERAMICS. I'M A HUGE FAN OF NEUTRALS, AND THERE'S NOTHING BETTER TO EASE INTO WINTER THAN BEING SURROUNDED BY SHADES OF GREY, OFF-WHITE, AND OF COURSE BLACK.
