A brown color scheme is one of the easiest to create in your home. A brown room is timeless, comforting and adds so much warmth and coziness. You really can’t go wrong when using brown color palette combinations because they always work and by simply adding a new accent color they always work. Using warm tones in our house always makes the family feel comfortable and “at home”.
A Brown Color Palette Combination Is…
Look around you and take notice of all the brown we live with every day, it is no wonder that brown room combos will always work no matter what the current trends are. Look at the earth tones of brown we see in all the wood furniture and floors we have. And brown is the color of our ever popular delicious “chocolate”, so we have no problem embracing this color!
Let’s face it, we have been living with this timeless earthy tone for centuries, so the color brown is a classic that stays around time and again.
Where can you use a brown color combination?
Of course a brown room works anywhere in the house, but you will want to make sure you vary the shades within this color scheme to keep it interesting. Keep in mind, when using a dark chocolate and dark mocha paint on walls, make sure there is sufficient light in a room.
Look at the photo above, and you can see how the balance of white and natural light with the chocolate brown walls work really well. If light is a problem in your space, then use the darkest shades of brown in your furniture and color accents, not for the paint on your walls.
How about a cottage style bathroom with a chocolate brown vintage tub? What a charming place to be, and I would love to spend some time soaking here.
Check out at brown grounds this dining space above, and lets all the other colors of green and pink pop against a soothing neutral background.
