Coffee Colored World

Coffee-themed fabric and yarn

This week is all about Stitches West and we're going to need beaucoup caffeine to get us through!
Rich browns, warm oranges, and earthy greens....
these cozy autumnal tones remind me of a strong cup of coffee.
I have a friend who years ago took a brown paper pastry bag with the Java City logo printed on it into the paint store and said, "I want these colors on my living room walls!"
What she ended up with were these colors...
kraft bag brown for the top part of the walls, rusty orange for the chair rail,
and sage green for the lower half of the walls.
I say, "when inspiration strikes you...go with it!"
To me, these colors are inspiring and perfect for a cozy farmhouse kitchen
or any place you are looking to warm up.
