From adorning your bedroom walls to gracing your living room’s space, a brown colour combination is versatile enough to adapt to any of your desired rooms.

Brown colour schemes can help create a cosy and comforting bedroom and a positive and radiant living room.
This blog helps you create your very own brown colour combination for the chosen space with the help of modern trends and the guidance of Nerolac’s experts.
In order to create a cohesive brown palette in your living room or bedroom, you can paint your wall in a primary brown colour scheme and decorate your space with secondary brown accents and rustic decor. In order to elevate the rustic charm and enhance the brown backdrop, add rugged fabrics as throws, incorporate dried flowers, wooden tones and aged materials. It is safe to say that decor elements, upholstery and paint colours in the hues of tan, beige, brown, caramel and cream can create a unique yet consistent space that is nature-inspired.
If you do not wish to go for a deep, earthy brown, there’s always a light brown that can act as a perfect backdrop to darker accents and furniture. While your walls can take on a beautiful light brown texture, your fabrics, upholstery and decor can flaunt deeper colours to make a statement of contrast. Adding woven textiles, a brick-brown throw or cushions that are red can create a lively palette for a bedroom or living room. Go with beautiful terracotta, tan or neutral greens to complement these lighter brown Colour schemes.
Even a neutral palette can have depth and character, and that is the story of brown colour combination with cream or beige. Brown on one hand is a deeper and darker colour with depth and richness to its pigment whereas cream or beige play the perfect balancing act with its surreal backdrop qualities. The beauty of this brown Colour scheme is that it can accommodate bohemian design styles, contemporary wooden interior design or traditional Victorian styles too.
With both colours rich in pigment and character, this brown colour combination is striking yet visually stimulating in its appearance. If you want an amalgamation of subtle pigment and vivacious energy, brown and red are the colours for you. This brown colour combination is perfect for living rooms where the energy levels are high and people are entertained. Consider using brown as a primary backdrop because of its subtlety and richness, whereas red can bring in its energy through accents, decor or upholstery. These brown Colour schemes are best suited for living rooms, guest spaces and balconies.
When these two rich colours are combined, they make for a very peaceful and tranquil colour combination. Perfectly suited for bedrooms, the brown colour combination with blue brings in richness, depth, character and warmth. Brown represents the warmth from earth whereas blue is the serene coolness we seek. Both colours can be used in various intensities from lighter to darker shades to evoke different qualities. This brown colour combination is versatile enough to suit interior design styles and both colours can be used as primary shades or secondary shades in your favourite room. If you love an earthy set up, choose brown as your backdrop with blue accents in furnishings and upholstery.
