Better Brown Than Brassy!

I used to be partial to browns a few years ago when I went through an ethnic phase. My colour schemes usually ranged from pale beige to taupe to dark mahogany, with warm colour highlights. Of late, however, I find myself leaning towards the more contemporary white/grey palette. Strange how our preferences evolve.

Here’s a gallery of browns from my travels.

  1. Wow, we have the same colour schemes! And I love brown in combination with blue.
    You know when we ladies comes up over 50 we shouldn’t wear black close to our face because the few wrinkles that we have will become even deeper – so brown and grey is to recommend. *smile – Same with mascara …
    And you have nearly the same angle on the Eiffel Tower as I had on one of my favorite shots. I just love your gallery of browns and my pick of this great bunch is the two “mugs” with tea or something.

    1. We do share a lot of things in common it seems! Hope you ‘sorry ass’ is treating you kindly Viveka! Hugs 🙂
