Why is brown such a great color to have for the home? Because it’s warm and will go with just about any color that you already have in your home right now.
From blue, to green and many colors in between, brown will be a great companion color.
I wouldn’t suggest painting your entire room brown although for the dining room or office, that will be just fine.
It may be too much if you have a large bedroom but just perfect for accent features on one main wall or even the ceiling.
The reason I love brown so much for the home is that it will bring balance into your home. Many people are going for the darker, walnut floors and still have very light walls. That is just an unsetting look. Your flooring will be the first thing you notice when you walk into your home and it shouldn’t be that way.
If you add brown accents to your home, you now will have balance. You’ll have a dark floor, brown on the wall which takes your eye up and then scattered brown accents though out your room to complete the look. That’s just good design. Have your eye travel in the room, not just stop at the flooring.
This will definitely be the color to watch along with green for 2016-2017.
