There are some who like to keep their home designs conservative, and there are others who prefer to be outlandish. If you’re in the former category, then you’re likely thinking of using neutral colors for your living room design. In fact, you might be thinking of one color specifically: brown.
There’s a reason for this, of course. Brown happens to be one of the most versatile design colors out there, capable of matching up nicely with pretty much any other color you might use against it. Because of this, designing a living room around a brown color scheme can often be easier than it is with any other color choice.
Just because it might be a little easier to design with, though, doesn’t mean there aren’t things to think about. Even further, it doesn’t mean that there aren’t tried-and-true design tips that you can use for yourself!
In the 24 examples that follow, we’re going to take a look at living rooms that get the brown color scheme right. As you’ll see, it’s all about mixing in other notes of color right, leading to spaces that are balanced and visually appealing. So, come take a look, and see if you can’t find a brown living room design that might be perfect for your needs!
