January is such a melancholic month! The festive season is left behind, the weather is still cold, and loads of work is looming on the horizon. But I love this quiet time of serious thoughts about new beginnings. The special attraction of this period is, I think, that ultimately, you come up with a certain concentrated mood. Even that subtlest of shades, grey metallic, light blue, dirty white, cold beige, add a special calm feeling.
