How to Decorate a Living Room in Brown

If you desire for your living room to have the subtle and modern mystique of a fabulous New York City hotel, then think about using dark brown shades in mocha, cocoa and chocolate to create your living room design. Deep brown colors are luxurious and elegant, so your living room decor will portray a sophisticated and designer appeal that is sure to please. Decorating a living room with brown creates a living room design that is attractive to both the men and women.

Things You'll Need

  • Curtains
  • Dark-wood furniture
  • Candlesticks
  • Candelabras
  • Picture frames
  • Bowls
  • Sconces
  • Aromatic candles
  • Tile or stone accessories

Sheer or satin window treatments in chocolate colors like cocoa and mocha can blend glamorously with the surroundings. Paint the walls a basic beige color and the trims white to emphasize the rich color of the curtains. Living room curtains that have a slight sheen provide the most elegant and sophisticated fabric element to the room.

Designing a living room with a brown color scheme means that the entire room can look luxurious and elegant. To fulfill this desired goal, you must choose wood grains that add depth and warmth to the design. Some of the most harmonious wood grains for a chocolate brown living room decor include mahogany and cherry wood. Avoid bland tan or muted oak furnishings. In addition, choose dark wood stained furniture carefully so that it doesn't clash with the colors in the window treatments.

Choose subtle lighting that adds a designer touch to the room. Brushed nickel and wrought iron make fanciful and sophisticated metalwork accents. Candlesticks, candelabras, picture frames, bowls, and sconces in these mediums add to the ambiance of the brown living room. Use these accents sparingly. Additionally, aromatic candles in chocolate, tan, mocha, coffee colors can be used to accent a coffee table, sofa table, or entertainment center. To complete the magical brown living room design, accessories that are made of tile or stone can be added to the decor.
