When most people think about brown in the context of interior design, their mind automatically jumps to wood. But really, it’s so much more than that. These days, we have so many amazing textures and materials that have redefined the generic color palette. So today, we’ll be taking a look at how you can emulate several shades of brown in a single home interior!
1. With bright contrast
This interior design features quite a unique blend of browns in a single space. All of the shades retain their own identity, yet add a new flavor to the ambiance. The design of the shelf is cabinet is done in an earthy brown of wood, while the tawny shade of the couch add a nice contrast to it. The dash of ginger hue on the right side add a bright pop to the entire ambiance.
2. Going rustic
For those of you who cannot afford to have an authentic ashlar stone wall in their home interiors, this idea is a good alternative. The use of stone themed earthy brown wallpaper looks gorgeous against the oak hued table top and the walnut hued in-built shelves in the background. The overall effect is quite charming and unique.
3. Hints of caramel and beige
Caramel and beige may be on the lighter end of the whole brown spectrum, but they do tend to merge nicely with the brown theme. They look great when incorporated in the floor and plain feature walls. The beautiful floors and media wall in the living room in this image are a great example of how you can highlight these understated shades of brown in a personality filled home interior.
4. Wood and light
Sometimes, you don’t even need any extra shades to make the most of your brown palette. Usually, good lighting can create an amazing aura by reflecting off the materials and creating an inherent rainbow of shades in a simple surface. The pendent lights and recessed strip lights featured in this image are an excellent example of how you can articulate this technique.
5. Pull out the patterns
If you feel like using only a single shade of brown in your home interiors, then you can bring out a little diversity in the design by opting for pattern breaks. The slatted furniture in this image is an excellent way to emulate simple yet impactful patterns to complement your brown palette.
