A contemporary brownstone – 6 interiors with a chocolaty theme
Brownstones may be old school, but everyone seems to want to live in one. An actual one might be too much of a pain to get, so designers have been inspired and emulated the relative theme within some very distinguished contemporary homes – be it suburbs or apartments. Brown is a naturally rich color that imbues plush coziness along with intimacy within any interior. Below, we will be looking at such chocolaty themed interiors.
- Up, down and sideways
This interior is definitely a modern contemporary interpretation of the brown theme. It shies away from the rustic aesthetic and focuses on all the modern sensibilities that make up a successfully modish interior. Each and every component of this interior is in some hue of brown, and the culmination of that variety is what makes this interior an interesting mixture. Aside from the firm juxtaposition of aesthetic and color, there is a very plush new-fangled-ness in this scheme that is rare in woodsy interiors.
This brown interior is made up of all smooth surfaces that interpret the overall aesthetic as something modern. However, the solid scheme encumbers the interior with a richness that becomes an inherent part of its aesthetic. Although the overall style is very voguish, the essence of this design tries to emulate the dated.
- Going Retro
Emulating any kind of retro in a decidedly woodsy color scheme can go wrong in more ways than one. It is quite a challenging task that has been expertly carried out in the interior below. The addition of navy blue and yellow provide a careful juxtaposition to balance out the rustic of the brown, while emulating a fun factor in the space at the same time.
- Avenues in country chic
The brown in this interior has been carried out in a way that seems very inherent and exceptionally stylish. The use of mild steel furniture objects imbues a decidedly contemporary vibe in this interior – which would have otherwise seemed quaint. The overall aesthetic is plain but fashionable with a dash of austere.
- Doing the country
This interior design is three parts country and one part contemporary. Something about the ambient color scheme draws a country rustic comparison while a small part is all glossy laminates and new-fangled elevations, which accrues a careful but strategic juxtaposition of all lighter shades of browns.
This brown living room has such a dichotomy of accents within the inherent interior style that it is hard to pin it down in one sense. The overall outlook is a mish-mash of modern, contemporary, country and rustic styles with a twist – all enmeshed in a single space.
