Now for today's color story:
The anchor color for this story is a deep rich chocolate brown. This warmer version of black makes all colors next to it sparkle and pop.
It's considered a basic today but around 2005 it was considered the radical new "black". Also, in case you're wondering, it's a trend that started on the streets of Paris - specifically with brown and pink. It sounds so silly now but it caused quite a stir, suddenly the new trend was causing a rise in handbag and shoe sales (after all you couldn't be caught wearing black shoes with brown pants!) It also meant one more thing to think about when packing a suitcase- black pants? brown pants? 2 pairs of shoes? decisions, decisions....
(that's one reason my purse is black and brown)
Now that brown is the accepted norm we're starting to see "white" as the "new" color to throw in the mix.
All the colors on this bed accentuate the others.
