Brown is a fan-favourite colour scheme when it comes to contemporary interior designs. Singaporeans have developed a certain affinity for this particular neutral-hue, and are finding newer and innovative ways to use it in their homes. So today, we’ll be looking at 5 ideas especially for those who want to enrich their homes with brown hues. Let’s take a look:
1. Balancing with solid colours
If you’re using browns in textured form – such as wood – then you can create a unique ambiance by pairing it up with plain, solid colours. The interior design in this image is a great example. While the feature length shelf acts as a creative way to introduce browns, the navy blue media wall balances out its rustic appeal with a modernized look that is extremely attractive.
2. Just furniture accents
Using your furniture and accessories is a great way to emulate brown colour in plain interior designs. Against a backdrop of white, the varying hues of browns emulated through furniture and décor tend to stand out even more. Just look at this image for example; the sofa, curtains, media console, and even the area rug has been especially selected to introduce a great visual dynamic within the whole ambiance.
3. Getting creative with materials
We live in an era of material innovation, so searching the market for the best materials to emulate your love for brown is an excellent way to get things done. If you’re looking for inspiration for such a technique then check out the bathroom interior design in this image. The creative brown themed pattern in the tiles is a totally innovative way to bring in some innovative brown textures!
4. Wooden design elements
When everything is said and done, wood is the core of all brown design elements. It’s also a pretty versatile material so you can just have a lot of fun with it. You can use a lot of wooden design elements in your plain interior designs to enrich them with a naturally warm beauty. The stylish mullion partition wall in this image is a great example of this technique.
5. In terms of bolder colours
Since brown is categorised as a ‘neutral’ shade, you can pair it up with bolder hues to get a great look. Just take a look at this kitchen interior design. The unique contrast of black backsplash and countertops with white over-cabinets makes the wooden laminate used in the under-cabinets so much more attractive.
