Brown is one of those colors that emulates an unfettered warmth, coziness and style in all of its hues. As such, it’s become quite a fan favorite. From several shades of wood to simple wall paints and natural fibre rugs, there are a number of ways to use it in your home interiors. But the question is: what colors can you use to play up the contrast in an all-brown setting? There are several, and today we’ll be taking a look at all of them!
White is a naturally cool color, which is perfect for contrasting against the warmth of various shades of brown. If you take a look at this image, you’ll see how ID Gallery designers have expertly blended one-part white and three parts brown to emulate a stunning look which has been further embellished by creative lighting ventures and proper accessorizing – gorgeous and crafty at the same time.
If you’re looking for a dark contrast color to downplay the presence of brown in your home interiors, then ebony is the perfect color for the job. It’s bold, statement-worthy and highly charismatic. This bedroom interior design highlight the coziness and natural presence of browns throughout the space!
3. Light Grey
Grey and browns (particularly wooden textures) are the perfect blend when you’re going for a chic, sophisticated and slightly edgy industrial look. This study room interior is a great example of how you can combine grey and browns to emulate a highly modernistic and fully sleek interior design!
Brown and green are nature’s own blend of perfectly matched colors. Since green is an inherently bright and eye-catching color, it can overwhelm the browns if used too much. The trick here is to use green with subtlety and moderation and always ensure that the brown hues always overpower the greens in your interior design. The artificial grass carpet on the balcony is a great example of this technique.
If you’re looking for a complementary color that can amplify the presence of browns, then you absolutely have to use gold. However, use it carefully and in moderation as to not take away from the charisma of the browns. The dull gold curtains in this dining nook are a great example of this technique!
