Brown Home Interior Inspiration

Most brown home interior usually leave one feeling warm and cosy on the inside, complete at ease with the world. In call its incarnations, it is a very reliable color to decorate with.

Brown is, after all, one of the commonest color in nature, along with green, and is manifested in the foundation of life itself; the sustaining earth beneath our feet.

More forgiving than black, it should always be a decorating option - but be careful how you use it. I'd recommend using it a as base color and avoid going overboard.

Before Using Brown, Consider This...

Using all shades of brown only in home interior run the risk of your space becoming bland, heavy and downright dull.

Which shade you go for depends very much on the look you're trying to achieve as well as the space you're decorating.

For example, if you increase the yellow when mixed with black, you'll notice the shade of brown lightens. Thus including caramel to a room adds energy because of the element of yellow.

Thus, this makes it suitable for darker spaces without much direct sunlight.

However, if you've a space flooded with yellow natural light, yellowy shades of brown should be avoided. Instead, look for a richer and more sombre tone of chocolate in such a space.

- Caramel more relaxed

- Auburn more energetic
