cream + brown

February 25th | photography, thoughts

aren’t cream and brown soothing? creamy coffee, smooth pottery, hazy sunsets, grainy sand. much of nature is cream and brown and textured from weather and time. cream and brown feels quiet. i love it.

what cream and brown things are soothing your soul today?

    I’ve been loving brown lately and I’m planning to redo our master bedroom in shades of brown and cream. I think that a somewhat monochromatic color scheme will be very relaxing. On the flipside, I love the yellow that you’ve been showing lately. Maybe it will work in our kitchen?

  8. Your photos capture the exact feeling I want in our master bedroom, when I finally get around to doing something in there.

    We just pained our living room cream and brown! Brown above the chair rail molding, and cream below. I chose those colors because I wanted to create a relaxing space! It looks wonderful and changed the whole feel of the room. Loving it.

    Hot cafe au lait is soothing my soul this morning. My sweet girl is home with a fever and I’m going to curl up on the couch with her all day, watch whatever movies she wants and give her lots of TLC.

    I love your photos today, and always Lisa!

    My home is mostly browns, but with white accents. not because of the soothing quality but because the dirt dosen’t show

    I’m looking a brown glazed pottery vase with cream crackles and creamy colored wheat shooting from the top. Very organic.

  33. christine says:

    I have dark brown furniture in my creamy yellow living room with a few colorful accents of red, orange, green and yellow. But I love the dark brown against the yellow and feel like I can snuggle right into comfort in this room.
