Brown. I have to admit, it hasn’t been a favorite of mine. But, the latest resurgence of this earthy neutral has me reconsidering. So, why this change of heart?

It was the brown on brown use of this color that I just couldn’t stand. But, when you include brown home decor in small amounts in a white or gray room, the look is just stunning!
The shade of brown makes a difference too. This particular hue is called Pantone Emperador. It’s a dark, chocolate brown that’s nothing short of yummy! So, where do we find some of this brown decor? Here are some pieces you might want to try…
