Delectable Interiors

I was browsing the web looking for pictures of interiors featuring various shades of brown and beige. I found some lovely images and when I was thinking  about describing the colours used, words as mocha, vanilla, caramel, coffee, and chocolate came to mind. It then struck me that these were all edible in some way and I thought it would be fun to try and find some pictures of food and drink to match the interior pictures. Here is my attempt. Enjoy!

  9. Hi Sharon,

  12. You totally nailed this! Now however I am hungry and not just for anything but for something decadent, sweet and lets just say not so dietic! Love all the gorgeous images above and those earthy colors are my this was a fabulous post!

  13. These are fabulous. Thanks for stopping by my little world. I'm finally liking the beige in our kitchen, and have found that bringing in different textures (like the barnwood), has helped pull it together. These visuals will bring more inspiration!!

  14. Delectable in every way! I'm such a chocolate lover, no wonder I love it in decor too.

  15. Love this post. Every image is so yummy. Food and interiors. You did an amazing job with your selections and pairings. The other thing I love about this post is like a light bulb going off. Chocolate with creme is an amazing pairing. They bring each other to life. Too many interiors we go into are all brown and taupe...boring. And then you have the brown, gold and red that I'm getting rid of that is dated. I'm in love with gray but it's not for everyone. This chocolate and creme is just divine.

  16. Dear Sharon this is a great way to start the week! I love all your pictures, I take 10 kg only looking at chocolate and ice cream pictures!
    Have a wonderful week too.
    Bisou, Babi

  17. Eye candy everywhere Sharon!!! I love these interiors and oh that dining room...swoon!!!
    The chocolate is yummy too!!

    I'm so glad your boys loved my cookies :)
