5 Amazing Brown Colour Schemes For Your Home Design
White and minimalist interior designs have been trending over the last couple of years. Other than its simplicity and timeless design, it also injects an airy and spacious look. However, with kids or fur kids, having an all-white interior design might not be the most ideal. While white allows the space to look clean, any dust or dirt also shows up easily on white surfaces.
If white is not suitable for you, consider using shades of brown for the colour scheme of your house! Its pretty easy introducing other colours into the colour scheme as well when working with brown since it is a neutral colour. It’s also timeless, a colour that has endured the test of time!
Take a look at these homes for some inspiration and ideas on how to style your living room in Singapore with brown being the main colour scheme!
BROWN + BROWN
You can never go wrong with brown and styling it with the hues of brown! Shades ranging from beige, copper, chestnut to chocolate blend together perfectly, creating that warm and cosy interior. To really add a soothing ambience to your living room, get those soft warm lights. Add a diffuser in the room to help you better unwind and relax after a long day!
BROWN + PINK
If you have a small living room (which most of us would experience living in BTOs), having too much brown might make your space look cramped and small. For a feature wall idea, use brown only on one of the walls in your living room to create a feature wall while keeping the rest of the furniture mainly white to help brighten up the space.
BROWN + TEAL
Brown and teal is the last colour combi I would think of, but they look surprisingly well together! Applying the same tip – by choosing only one surface of the room to be in brown, this homeowner chose wooden flooring to bring brown into the space while keeping the rest of the furniture mainly white. The rest of the room is decorated with the accent colour, teal, which gives the room a fresh and coastal look.
BROWN + AUTUMN
No other season describes that warm, cosy feeling better than autumn. While Singapore only experiences summer all-year round, you can still recreate that autumn look at home. Using shades like burnt red, cinnamon and mustard yellow, give your living room a vibrant and warm look. Remember to add warm, soft lights too!
BROWN + ASH BLUE
While some living rooms are clearly demarcated from the kitchen, some are not. If your kitchen adopts an open-concept, remember to keep the colour scheme of your kitchen similar to your living room so that both areas will not look like they’re fighting for attention!
No matter which colours you wish to introduce into the brown colour scheme, remember to choose a muted shade of that colour. This will make things relatively easy to work with while styling your abode. But If you’re feeling more adventurous, go for an eclectic look with brighter colours!
