Nothing makes a room quite as cozy as chocolate and almond browns, and few things could be more representative of the fall. The color of fall foliage, leather, and coffee also add warmth to an interior. But too much of a good thing can turn into the opposite. So, keep your interior looking fresh by balancing browns with contrasting or complementing tones like white, black, and green.


Tips for a Brown Color Palette

  • Layer different shades of brown for depth. Almond, latte, chocolate, mushroom, and coffee can enhance the interior with its highlights and shadows.
  • Stay away from making mid-tones the primary hue. Choose either a light or dark base color from which to show off other elements in your room.
  • Go with a contemporary steampunk or industrial look with leather chairs and metal finishes. In other words, pair brown with copper and black for an impressive interior.
