I recently received ripped out magazine pages with photographs of a gorgeous brown and white houndstooth headboard that my Aunt Kathy sent to me in the mail with a hand written note. Yes, you read that right…ripped out pages, hand written note, and snail mail. Envelope, stamp, and everything. I LOVE HER.
And yes, the headboard was right up my alley, but it was the super rich chocolate brown color that really tripped my trigger. It got me to thinking about painting an entire room a deep brown….the color just lends itself to a library, a study, or a den. A space for curling up on a sofa with a good book (ok, a Kindle), and a cup of coffee (ok, a glass of wine), and getting cozy.
