Have you ever noticed how beautiful brown is? I’ve always had a soft spot for it. There is a warmth there, a richness and a comforting earthiness.

Brown trees. Brown bears. Brown chocolate. Brown stallions. Brown spices. Brown fur. Brown is what it is, out to fool nobody and at peace with itself.

When it puts on its sassy pants, brown gets a little (or a lot) honeyed up. It is russet, cocoa, copper, caramel, amber, oxblood, rust, truffle, tobacco, terracotta, chestnut, mahogany, sienna. Velvety shades of ancient earth and grounded magic.

In other words, brown can be brilliant.
