Brown is a color that’s not as strong and dramatic as black so it can be safely used for all the walls. Also, there are different shades of brown so it’s important to pay attention to this detail as well. A bedroom where all the walls are brown needs a brighter and lighter color so it would be nice to opt for white. For example, paint the door white, the windows and maybe even the floor and use white for the furniture and decorations too.

And since we mention the different shades of brown, there’s also the possibility of combining them. If you have an attic bedroom then you can use a darker shade of brown for the lower portion of the walls and a lighter one for the upper part and for the ceiling. You can also do the same in the case of a regular bedroom and you can even create an angle to suggest the presence of a roof and to create a cozier décor.

Brown is a color that can be easily combined with beige. So if you have brown walls in the bedroom, then you can choose beige for the furniture, bedding, curtains and the rug. But it might still be too simple for your taste so you might want to add a bolder color to the mix. Blue or turquoise would be nice.
