Brown colour - enrich your space with the strength and warmth of the earth

Brown belongs to neutral secondary colours and is made by mixing red, green and blue (the ideal ratio is 56:43:23%). Here lies the secret why brown makes an excellent match with other tones from the palette.

Brown is an earthy colour which is frequently found in nature and symbolises strength, stability, warmth and comfort. Due to the warmth that its darker shades vibrate, it is considered the colour of autumn and winter. People often experience it as a natural, conventional and ground-to-earth colour although certain shades may seem highly sophisticated. It is used as a pleasant and more subtle substitute for black.

Brown also has associations to something which is edible, pleasant and tasty, so for many people this colour is the synonym for chocolate or coffee. Combined with green, it creates the timeless match of earthly colours with association to recycling and environment protection.

Brown is also the colour of simplicity. Its darker shades make the impression of gentility, wealth and comfort, such as chocolate and coffee shades, while softer and lighter shades (beige, coffee with cream, cappuccino...) are the ideal base for combinations with livelier and more intense tones. Interior designers simply adore the amount of creativity which the neutrality of brown shades provide, thus they are often found both in living and business environment.

Neutrality explosion of brown shades on the walls

Brown is often described as boring and monotonous colour without character. But this is true only if you do not know its real nature and fantastic possibilities of combining it with all other colours in the spectrum. By creative matching with other shades you will avoid conventionality and create different ambience in a space which will seem at the same time as the timeless vintage and modern style.
Intimate atmosphere and the effect of a sandy beach can be created by skilful combination of white and brown shades. This combination is an excellent choice for dining rooms and living rooms, as well as is the harmony which brown and orange colours provide in a space. Freshness and modern appearance in brown shades will be brought by light blue details while the female touch to the interior will be provided by the lovely lavender. It is not infrequent to find kitchens with these colours in top world interior design magazines.

Classical look of a room can be created by combining red and brown. Since both colours are dark and absorb a lot of light, such design is recommended for well lighted rooms.
