Toffee + Cream


The fresh snow against the last of the toffee coloured fallen leaves is such a beautiful contrast - warm, rich cognac tones against a stark white. There's something so appealing about this rich combination - perhaps because of the reminiscence of delicious toffees and and caramels cream white whipped cream.

Thanks for some great inspiration today!! Just jetting around the Internet and happened upon you! Love it. I am designing furniture for my new design showroom and was stuck.... Lots of modern colors with an edge... And wanted some softer looks too.. and voilĂ ! I hit upon your post with excellent inspiration!! I might have to name the chair the "Javier" in honor! Thanks!!

Thanks for so many kind compliments to Javier - he, of course, is my favourite :)

D + D - I told Javier about the chair and he did a little dance (perhaps it was just the excitement in my voice )

Mrs Keh - perhaps little Penny inspired you all along?

Aimee - Javier is a pug/beagle mix

So beautiful - I just ordered a toffee coloured leather couch and I got a little nervous about the colour afterwards, but your post totally just made me feel excited about the colour again, so thanks!

... now I just need a bunch of those toffees so that I can sit on the couch and eat them!

Chic Coles said...

We all love carmel and toffee for that mater. Yummy post.

escapade said...

Revel - I'd say you definitely do - now you have the perfect excuse!

Chic Coles - I have to say, posting on toffees did make me a little peckish... I may have indulged a bit...
