I Pulled Out A Little Vintage Brown [Design File Thursday]

For some reason the color brown has been on my mind and I don’t know why.  I am really not a person that would really select lots of brown items.  I do like natural fabrics and you guys have heard me rant about that for some time.  I have filed away tons of beach home designs and little odd and ends of things in this color palette.

So with that thought I pulled together these collages with pictures of items that totally tickle my fancy.  And you know by now I usually include some kind of beauty items in there.  Yes, I am a little bit of a collector of beauty items especially eyeliner and lip gloss.  A girl can’t have too many tubes of lip gloss can she?  And if you were wondering, I do have one in the palette above…well maybe 2 or 3.

I remember when I came across the beach home above it looked as if it was floating in water. And so my imagination started to run a bit.  The architect only supplied one photo.  I hate when they do that.  I always want to know what’s in there?  What type of home interior design has been selected.  Who did they design it for?  No luck, so I have to think about what I would do.  I go into my creative thinking and the above is what I would do.  I only picked photos of bedrooms and bathrooms to just give you an idea of what I thought would look good.  And remember I like a little bit of vintage with a twist of modern.  When I am trying to inspire myself or gather items to help the design process along I always try to pick items that are out of the ordinary meaning paper, cosmetics and food.  It helps you get out of the box and think of the color differently.

I was really stuck on the bathroom designs.  The coolness of the stone and linen styled shower panels really caught my eye {pic 3}.  I guess I really do go and seek out the natural elements in design.  It’s just in my bones.
