Earthy Browns

When dollops of caramel mix with organic shades of tan and hints of butterscotch, you get a room that’s visually warm and toasty — and evokes peace

PORTRAITS BY MARY DUPRIE
 

YOU WANT TO sit right down in this vignette at the RJ Thomas Ltd. showroom at Michigan Design Center. Created during “Celebrations Around the World,” which featured designs commemorating the center’s 40th anniversary, designers Margaret Skinner, left, of Birmingham-based Margeaux Interiors (margeauxinteriors.com) and Ann-Marie Anton, far left, of It’s Personal Design (itspersonaldesign.com) in Grosse Pointe Woods, presented a color palette inspired by The Detroit Wallpaper Co. wallcovering, which hints at diversity and multiculturalism (see opposite page photo). The warm color scheme mixes textures and earthy elements in the reclaimed wood of the panel screen (see opposite page photo, made by Lars Dundas/Woodshop at Far End), the nubby throw, and the woven and faux fur materials of the sofa.
