Spotty-Cat-Inspired Design

My cat Diana is what they call a "calico-point Siamese." That is, she has the blue eyes and classic brown and mocha coloration of a Siamese, but the points are in patches alternating with white. The alternating spots on her back make a pattern I find really interesting from a design standpoint.

Here she is sitting on the piano bench:

Her coloring inspired me to create a design, possibly a web page header, that uses similar blocks of chocolate brown punctuated by white space and accented with blue.
