Today I suggest you head over to AB Home Interiors to read a great post on the color brown. Amanda shares with us a few chocolate inspired photos and explores why this hue has such staying power. You'll also get some insight from yours truly as well as color bud Lori Sawaya.
"I think browns, in general, have staying power because they are grounding. Humans strongly associate browns with the earth, so using brown in our spaces can help to create a very solid, stable environment." - K. Berg
"Deep, rich browns remind us of chocolate and coffee...while pale golden imbued browns can look like a sandy beach." - K. Berg
"Deep browns are like a softer alternative to black. They allow us to get the depth and drama of black but with a softer, warmer edge." - K. Berg
So pop on over and let us know your thoughts on brown. What does it mean to you? Are you a brown lover or a hater? And do you think it's a color that's here to stay...or just a hue that has long overstayed its welcome?
