Brown The New Grey In Interiors?

Thank you to Avril for sharing her beautifully styled brown Aga range cooker with us, looking rather good with our classic 'All Black' hobs covers!

Brown has been declared the 'new grey' by many a interiors writer over the last year or so, including House & Garden and the Telegraph.  

Avril was ahead of the curve on this one, with retro warm brown on her beloved cooker and in her gorgeous earthy terracotta tiles. It sets off the blue perfectly, and shows how brown in all its tones is a happy companion to other colours.

I am a big fan of brown, and am considering a dark brown wool for my new carpet in my 70's home, what goes around comes around! It is a super practical colour too, especially with an adventurous mud rolling, tree climbing, paint splashing pair of kids in the house! 

No more 'yucky brown', more... 'mmm cosy warm brown!'

Katy is a rural girl at heart. She loves long walks, home cooking, paddling in rivers, warm fires and socks and stomping in leaves with her children. After studying ‘drawing stuff’ at university in Bath, Katy spent 10 years selling wares and managing folk at Habitat in Bath. Welcoming children into her world prompted her to return to drawing things, people and places from home. This led her to us at Blake & Bull and the rest is history. She draws our stuff, provides cuddles for the office dog, and is here to chat to you lovely lot.
