Color Inspiration: Brown
Design and color have a large part to play in the history of the automotive world. Here, we’ve married the two things together for the purpose of showcasing some automotive beauty.
Partly due to 1970’s associations and it’s camouflaging nature, brown was a car color recently thought to be going extinct, but it seems that the moment it was predicted to die out was the moment that people began to value it again.

“Think of the experience of good coffee, good chocolate, great pieces of wood,” Harrington told us, referencing the entire field of upscale umbric goods. “You’re seeing it across the crafts industry: more genuine materials, something that has longevity. The handmade quality people are looking for in luxury.” (Source)
