How to Decorate a Living Room With Green Walls & Brown Leather Sofas

Green walls and a brown leather sofa are wonderful backdrops to a living room with a natural, soothing feel. Depending on your personal decorating preferences, these colors lend themselves to a country look; a contemporary eco feel; or a funky, eclectic style. A brown couch can disappear into the background, but by working in accessories that play up your color scheme, you can balance the room and create a living room you will love to come home to.

Things You'll Need

  • Rug
  • Toss pillows
  • Artwork
  • Window coverings
  • Hutch or shelves
  • Collectibles
  • Houseplants
  • Pots
  • Lighting

Warm up your floors with a neutral rug that has browns and greens throughout. A botanical design would look great, as would an Oriental rug or a contemporary, abstract pattern.

Brighten your couch with patterned toss pillows. Make sure there is green in the pattern, and include other cool or neutral colors such as soft blue, white or tan.

Hang artwork that contrasts with your green walls. Black and white photographs would be an excellent choice. You could play up the eco feel of brown and green by choosing pictures or photographs of botanical or landscape images.

Provide privacy with window coverings in neutral colors, such as tan or cream.

Fill a hutch or shelves with a treasured collection. Keep items grouped in odd numbers and stagger heights, sizes and shapes for an appealing display.

Grow plants in majolica, glazed earthenware or patterned ceramic pots to provide a spark of interest and complement your color scheme.

Light your room well, as brown and green might appear dark. Floor lamps in metal finishes, interesting table lamps and an overhead ceiling fan light fixture or country-style ceiling light all will brighten your living room.
