With fall in full swing and lots of oranges, reds, and browns staring back at me on my walks around our neighbourhood, I started to think about brown as a paint colour choice. I have never been a brown or beige gal, always preferring grays, charcoals, or greige tones. Well, after doing my usual browsing around on Pinterest, I think I’m coming around a little. Some of these deep, chocolate-y browns are pretty scrumptious. With a healthy dose of lighter neutrals (white and off-white), some natural textures (like wood tables, woven baskets, etc), and a few little pops of colour here and there, brown suddenly becomes cozy and hip, and not the “boring builder beige/brown” I had always envisioned.

Love it? Hate it? Brown versus Gray? Both? What do you think?
