color story: decorating with shades of brown / sfgirlbybay

if i’m being honest, brown as a color may be cheating a little. because brown very often makes itself known in colors found in nature, mostly natural woods and beautiful bamboo — the stuff of trees. whether it’s a divine piece of wood furniture, some lovely bit of paneling, or exposed beams, brown abounds. it’s a rather underrated earth tone if you ask me, and can make quite a beautiful and dramatic statement. brown shades that are rooted in nature can be extremely soothing, relaxing, and instantly bring a warm and very cozy vibe to any space. In today’s color story we’re getting down with brown.
