I love living where there are four seasons.  Despite not being in love with winter… I couldn’t image not experiencing the wonders of each season each year.

This past weekend I was in Boston and on the way was thrilled to get to see the trees of New York, Vermont, New Hampshire and Massachusetts showing off their Fall colours.  What a gorgeous area of North America to live and get to travel in at this time of year!  a brown tree trunk with dead leaves all aroundThis week, as we continue to celebrate the colours of Fall, we are inspired by brownBrown might not seem like a very inspiring colour but it is so rich in tones from dark to light that it just evokes a closeness to the Earth around us.

Check out these beautiful brown pieces by some of my favourite local painters and be inspired by this earthy colour of Fall… dark-walnut-stain-marissa-hoodMarisa Hood | The Dresser Diva | Varathane Gel Stain in Dark Walnut
