My life feels like it is all about simplicity right now- best exemplified by my current obsession with black & white or black & cream. That clean crisp contrast is all I want to be surrounded by right now and I seem to be starting that style primarily by collecting ceramics. These interesting pieces are from British ceramic studio Kinska, which has an excellent shop on Etsy. From tiny eye brooches to hand-painted pots and planters, Kinska has so many options that celebrate the simple beauty of black and white. While the motifs may feel of-the-moment (cats, eyes, geometrics), something this simple is bound to feel timeless in the long-run. Click here to check out their shop and order online. xo, grace
