Neutral colors are always a good choice when you’re looking to give a room a makeover. White walls are often considered the ultimate neutral color for walls, since white goes with anything, but brown walls can be a nice change from traditional white.
Brown is almost as versatile a neutral as white is. It’s a rich color that’s not as stark and plain as white. It also has a nice rich, earthy feel to it. Although it tends to have a warm feel to it, brown also pairs well with almost any other color, including both cool and warm colors.
If you’re looking to make the switch to brown walls, here’ a little inspiration to get your inner interior designer juices flowing…
1. Dark Brown Walls With White Accents
Dark brown walls may seem a little too dark and dreary to some. Brighten up a rich dark brown color with lots of white accents, like floor to ceiling drapes, painted trim, and bedding.
Stenciled walls are a fantastic way to create a unique and custom wall design while still being affordable. The turquoise an white stenciled designs on this wall look amazing, especially with the matching turquoise accents!
One great way to break up the expanse of solid brown walls is to add some wainscoting to the lower half of the wall. The white of the wainscoting and trim adds some much needed brightness to this room and a touch of luxury.
