brown can get such a bad rap, don’t you think? it’s often labeled as boring and sometimes gets lumped in with beige and bachelor pads — and not in a good way. and yet ‘brown’ is all around us — it’s everywhere we look in nature: beautiful big oak trees, endless prairies and rolling hillsides. and then there’s classic hardwood floors and furniture — wood is brown, darn it, and it’s very beautiful. brown glass is quite lovely, too and very often ignored. you drink your beer and never consider the beauty of the amber bottle. i found some real brown beauties this weekend and thought i’d share. you can find these vintage brown babies at flea markets, and online on ebay and etsy. and loads of new beauty products are being bottled in brown these days too. let’s bring back the beauty that is brown!
