Fact: we have funny friends. Not long ago I found an old 1930s typewriter in my parents' basement, collecting dust. With their blessing, I brought it to our (1933) house and set it out in the dining room as a guest book. The kids have had the most fun with it and our friends leave goofy messages or pearls of wisdom. This colorway is a great neutral which is interesting on its own and pairs great with brighter colors.
