brownie points

Numbered List
The Sartorialist posted this picture of her friend in the brown jacket today and it got me thinking about incorporating this cool clean masculine look into a room. I have always loved brown with true white, or blue white, or another cool pastel. Brown adds warmth and depth against a clean, modern background. Using brown against a clean background is a good way to give something a masculine quality without it feeling heavy and weighed down. I love the way they use brown accents amidst stark white walls at the James Perse Store below, also the equestrian brown leather sofa with white cushions. Its so clean but still has a warmth to it.
