Elizabeth lives in a 1930’s duplex in Oakland, CA. She went to art school on the East Coast for two years before transferring to a liberal arts school in California and getting her BA in English with a creative writing emphasis. After working in communications for a while, she decided to go back to school for a year to study interior design and interior architecture.
Elizabeth started writing A Browner Brown in January of 2007. The site covers a variety of things, including home décor, art, the never-ending decorating job happening at Elizabeth’s house, paint colors, flea-marketing, stationary, artists, books, and many other topics. Someone once said the subtitle of this blog could be “things Elizabeth likes.” This is generally true, although to be complete it would have to be “things Elizabeth likes and thinks that you will probably like too.”
