Ever since I saw this cover of House & Garden UK in 2017 I’ve been crazy about the color brown. Hazelnut, chocolate, cognac—-there’s just something so understatedly chic about it in every shade. Painted on walls in a lacquer or gloss finish, brown looks as smart as you can get. From my wardrobe to my home, lately I’ve been embracing all the warmth brown has to offer. Below, explore some of my favorite brown interiors and products.
