Anyone who knows me knows I have a “thing” for brown. “Hi, my name is Emily, and I love the color brown” is basically how it goes. Blue has my full attention but brown has my heart.
With fresh autumn air beginning to stir in Sydney, I have been perusing images of this favorite shade even more than usual. I came to realize that it is not just the color alone but a specific combination that is more special than the rest. There is something about the coziness of rich, dark brown, paired with the airy, clean freshness of white, that sends me into a tizzy (that’s a professional design term for “excited and inspired beyond words.”) It might also be my love for a frothy, strong cappuccino sprinkled with deep rich cocoa that keeps this color combination in the forefront of my mind. Despite the reason, it is a classic look. Dare to dream with me and feast your eyes on these.
Have I convinced you yet? Brown is bold and masculine but paired with white, this winning duo is appropriate for a multitude of rooms and uses. From a warm welcome as a wallpaper in a foyer to a decadent paint choice for an enveloping bedroom, brown is an often underrated color that deserves a second look.
What color sends your heart racing? I’d love to know!
