Have you ever consider brown for your interior design or you think this color is too blank? You will change your mind, once you read this post, which introduces to you brown decorating ideas.

Earth colored interior

If you think brown is a boring color, consider this: what is the color of chocolate, what are the colors of mother earth, the color of soil, the color that can calm you down, and inspire? Using this earthy color can be fun, just make sure you dilute the brown with other soft colors, like beige. Light brown color can underlie and illuminate other objects in the room, while the darker brown can make the room shine with splendour.

If you are a fan of chocolate or coffee you should know better, that brown can be a luxurious color to decorate your house. Brown is a perfect, calm background for practically any other colors. If you want to create a classic interior design, use medium dark brown as background and cream for accesorizing. If you want something more funky don’t be afraid to use bolder colors, like emerald green, saphire blue and such. Once you fall in love with brown, there is no turning back, because you would realize that brown is a very rich and intriguing color, that can introduce style into your interior.

    Hey, Jennifer,

    Google tells me it’s “Sherwin-Williams SW6083 Sable”.

    Rod, I’m not sure, but Internet says it looks similar to Benjamin Moore’s Grizzly Bear Brown/
