Brown is the colour of the rich earth and is incredibly deep and relaxing. Deep brown hues carry a sense of calm that makes it an excellent choice for the walls of your home. There is a shade of brown available for every decor theme whether you’re looking for rustic country or sleek minimalism. For inspiration, here are the best shades of brown to bring in warmth and elegance to the walls of your home.

A Luxurious Shade Of Brown For The Bedroom

Brown need not be always dark and dramatic. You can use brown in your bedroom to evoke relaxing vibes. Since it is a neutral shade, it mixes well with other colours without making it too loud. The bedroom in this image depicts how perfectly brown can mix with other shades. The geometric pattern has shades of brown and white with LED lights making a charming wall accent. The use of earthy hardwood floor and tan wardrobe blends well with the entire setting.

Combine Brown With Blue

You simply can’t go wrong with a bedroom that is a combination of brown and blue. Brown is a neutral colour and so it goes with other hues. One represents the earth and the other the sky. They both have a calming effect and that is a good thing, you would agree right? Paint your bedroom and let your blues drift away. This modern styled bedroom with blue walls and wooden panelled wall with black pendant hanging lights is nothing less than extraordinary.
