20 Beautiful Brown Living Room Ideas

Brown is such a versatile color. It can bring a rustic look to your room or an elegant charm. It is rich, relaxing, and warm, all this in one color. If you need more reasons to use the color brown, it is also a color that can be used in combination with just about any other color in the spectrum, which makes it a great design idea for any room in your home. When it comes to your living room, it is the most utilized room in the home, the gathering hub for the family to visit, entertain, relax and rejuvenate at the end of the day. You want your living room to be functional, yet beautiful, and you want it to showcase your personality and style. Brown is a color that can help you tie everything you want from your living room, all together. If you love the idea of a brown living room but aren’t sure how to create the perfect look, here are some ideas to help get you started.

Decide how brown

Like any color, there are different shades of brown, from a light creamy brown, mocha, rich dark browns, and everything in between. If are wanting to incorporate the color onto your walls, decide how light or dark of the color you want on your walls, keeping in mind, that dark colors can make small rooms look and feel smaller by visually shrinking the square footage of a room. Dark walls can make a room feel warm and cozy, if this is the look and feel you want to achieve. One way to use dark, rich browns on the walls is to offset the walls with light brown or neutral colored furniture. The look is catchy and makes the walls really pop. On the flipside, if dark brown walls feel too heavy, try using a light shade of brown on the walls and dark brown furniture pieces, and example might be to decorate the room with a dark couch and love seat in coordination with a patterned chair that have hints of brown, but other, vibrant accent colors throughout.

Using accent colors

Because brown is really a neutral color, it can be combined with so many different accent colors. Don’t be afraid to go bold and mix in some greens, teal, red, blues, or yellows. Some of the most traditional colors paired with brown are white, cream, beige, and a variety of different shades of red. The darker the accent color, the richer the room can look. You can brighten areas of the room, to avoid too much of a dark theme, by using lighter colored accents throughout the room. A light colored throw or area rug, light-colored throw pillows, lamps with cream or dirty beige shades can be used, and wall-hanging art pieces that are bright and airy, can add a lighter side to your room, and will help to make the brown pop without feeling overwhelming.

Brown is a fun color to use for your living room. You can make your living room as brown as you want, from flooring, to furniture, walls and even lighting fixtures, such as a hanging chandelier or side lamps. There are so many ways to use the color that with brown, just about anything is possible.
