Brown Interiors: Wall Color
Neutrals are nothing new to the design scene, but it’s rich shades of chocolate brown wall color that are really commanding attention. We’ve seen charcoal gray and even black applied in a similar way, but there’s something about the warmth of a brown-painted room that brings a lot of depth and character. And it doesn’t hurt that dark brown plays particularly well with taupe, terracotta, and other likeminded neutrals. Here are a few brown paint color suggestions to get the look:

Brown Interiors: Curtains
I’m a firm believer that a room never really feels complete until the windows are fully dressed. And while I once wrote off brown in favor of airy whites, I’m definitely ready to reconsider. Not only do brown curtains really bring richness to a space, but they pair beautifully against black curtain rods and hardware. The arbitrary rule to never mix brown and black is finally a thing of the past.

Brown Interiors: Flooring
Blonde wood and white oak have long been the darlings of the flooring world, but there’s a noticeable movement towards dark brown tones from hardwoods to floor tile. And while I’m seeing this play out quite a bit in kitchens and main floor hardwoods, it’s also spilling over into bathroom design. Park & Oak‘s use of dark brown floor tile is particularly striking with contrasting white grout for a heightened effect.
Brown Interiors: Upholstery
I know the general concept of brown furniture can feel dated, but I’m genuinely excited to see how designers are bringing back the look with their own fresh take. I’ve seen brown upholstery show up in the work of everyone from Amber Lewis to Jake Arnold, and it really sets the scene for a calming, grounded environment. I personally love a deep brown velvet side chair, but the options are pretty endless.
