you know that morning moment when you pour the cream into your coffee (whether it be almond, soy, coconut or whatever you put in your coffee these days) and it makes that marbled, beautiful kind of caramel swirl color. yes – that moment. that’s what inspired today’s color story. i just love that color and always feel compelled to document it, but lest you loathe those coffee shots i’ve opted to put the color to better use today and share what the color might look like in decor. here’s to that morning brew and all its beauty.

  1. Love this! What a delicious description today. I seem to have a thing for all shades of brown, and am a big lover of natural wood tones as well. I also want to say that I’m not sure when you went back to writing all your own posts, but I’m loving it. You had good writers, but I’ve always felt your perspective was just a little more nuanced. Hope you’re enjoying your new bungalow. Love Laguna!

  2. This classic color – in my humble opinion- will never EVER go out of style. I haven’t ever been able to wrap my heart around the grey/gray trend – give me latte and green and black and ivory every time.

    To thine own self be true.

    Enjoyed this post.
