I like the idea of using brown with unexpected color combinations-- steering clear of pairing it with other earth tones and instead juxtaposing it with teals, mints, citrons and pinks. Seems fresher that way.
All these brown colorscapes made me think of UPS trucks and how awesome it is that the company hasn't changed its colors or done much to change the look of their fleet of bubble-nosed vehicles in over 50 years. Hats off to them. Does anyone else dislike the fact so many companies/sports teams/brands change their colors or overall look to be more modern? Keep the old, I say! I don't even follow sports, but really enjoy it when teams wear their throw-back uniforms (all the men reading this are breathing a collective, exasperated sigh). Maybe I'm the only one who has such passionate feelings about color...
Okay, I'll get off my soapbox. Read more about the evolution of the UPS truck here. Happy Wednesday, mes amis, it's all downhill to Friday now!
