Brown is a very warm color to have in your living room. Brown is the color for security and stability and it is also a sophisticated color. You can use different shades of brown like beige, light tan, and subdued mocha. If you want your living room to look smaller, paint it brown.
Your walls and furniture should be in different shade of brown so you can make a contrast between them. In order for you to balance your brown-colored walls, you should consider factors like the size, color, and arrangement of your furniture. For example, if the walls are of light brown hues, choose chocolate-brown furniture and vice versa. Note that the maximum number of brown shades you can choose for your living room is three. For example, you can mix light brown, medium brown, and dark brown.
Moreover, if you want to have another color for your furniture, you can choose green instead. Green and brown mesh well together as they are the normal color combination of the majority of plants and this will give you a feeling of freshness in the room.
Another color that you can use, and one that matches well with brown is blue and shades of blue like teal and turquoise. For example, put paintings of the sea and ocean on the brown walls. You can also mix green and blue together. Teal and aqua blue mixed with cream brown can make the room look more welcoming.
Make sure that your furniture items like your entertainment set, couch, coffee table and other big furniture must be of the same color.
White, which is a neutral color, will also match your brown walls. Your drapes may also be in white or blue, especially ocean blue. You can have one brown wall to serve as the accent area of the room. Give your imagination free rein; this is your living room after all, right!
