Brown is often overlooked in interior design, not just in the case of the bedroom but in general. Brown is perceived as being a neutral color plus it’s also warm and very versatile which means a whole new array of possibilities becomes available once you decide to use this color in your home. But what colors can you combine brown with? That’s a great question for which we have the answers right here.
Use brown is combination with green for a fresh and organic look. You can paint the walls green and opt for brown wooden furniture with a dark stain. The contrast will be strong and yet subtle and comfortable.
For a luxurious touch, use brown in combination with gold. Add a few golden accents to the bedroom which can be lamps, accent pillows, other light fixtures, wall décor, etc. Still, try not to overdo it even if there are lots of great options.
Keep the color palette warm and pleasant but with a bold and energy-infused twist by adding orange elements to the bedroom décor. Both brown and orange can be accent colors on a neutral background.
Since brown is a warm and comfortable color, you can choose to combine it with a cool shade such as blue. Sure, in this case, both tones tend to be dark, unless you deliberately opt for light shades.
Sometimes strong contrasts are the most interesting. This means you should use brown in combination with white. The result will be a bedroom décor with clean lines and a fresh and balanced ambiance.
Paint the bedroom walls dark brown and leave the ceiling white. It’s an interesting strategy with lots of benefits. You’ll make the room look cozy and welcoming, the décor will be relaxing allowing you to rest well and the white elements will allow the room to stay fresh and airy.
Take inspiration from Living Rooms.
In the case of the living room, the first thing that comes to mind when talking about brown as a color is leather furniture. It always looks elegant and has a classical flair that can charm regardless of the style.
Use brown on brown. In other words, experiment with different shades of brown and mix in a little bit of beige and gold as well. The transitions between colors will be smooth and seamless and the overall décor will be cohesive and harmonious.
A few touches of red can be refreshing in a living room that also features brown elements. The combo is balanced since both red and brown are warm colors but one is neutral and the other is bold.
If classical, elegant and sober is your style when it comes to interior design then you should combine brown with beige. The colors are related and the contrast is not as strong as with white but still, it’s there.
There’s more than one shade of brown to choose from. We prefer chocolate brown because it’s more versatile and works great as an accent color is all sorts of situation, whether it’s used in big blocks or as a trim for light-colored elements.
Feel free to combine several different shades of brown as well as numerous textures and patterns. The result will be a diversified décor that uses color to stay cohesive.
Soften the brown elements in your décor with pastel-colored accessories. For example, add pastel throw pillows on a brown leather sofa and coordinate them with other elements in the room.
Brown Bathroom ?
In the case of the bathroom, you want the décor to feel relaxing, comfortable and inviting as well as refreshing so your best option is to add brown elements to a white background and to try to harmoniously spread the two colors throughout the space.
Or Kitchen ?
Things are similar in the case of the kitchen. In here, however, you have a bit more freedom when choosing the materials. A kitchen island with a brown base and a marble top will look elegant and luxurious and you can soften the look with some wooden bar stools.
