Warm Spaces with Brown Tones


As a natural response to changing seasons, we welcome darker colors in fall and winter and choose lighter colors in spring and summer. Fall is not here, brown colors seem especially attractive. Earth tones are becoming popular again, but I find it interesting when we say colors are “out” or “in”, especially those that are dominant in nature like blues, greens and browns.

As we all know, preferred palettes in interior design change from year to year. We are definitely in a warmer tone phase and have moved far away from the grays that were so popular ten years ago. If you use medium to dark wood tones in your furniture or accent choices, you are already decorating with brown, one of nature’s most common colors. Below are some inspiring examples of how to be more intentional with brown tones
