Brown The New Black

Brown The New Black

Brown is the colour of the moment and is fast becoming the new black in interior design. This earthy colour  is what we will be seeing all over to give warmth to our homes

From Chocolate browns, camels and caramels to coffee, wood and leather we will find ourselves incorporating this colour in different hues, shades and tones in every nook and cranny of our homes.  Explore this colour with me over the next few weeks and just maybe you will find your favourite shade of brown.

To fall in love with a colour we need to experience it in its fullness pairing it with complimentary shades and tones. And blend it into a wider colour scheme. 

With brown, your palette needs to stay close to other natural colours and you should try and avoid primary saturated colours.

Brown is an easy neutral colour to live with because it can work well with some of our favourite interior colours like peach, terracotta, amber, mustard, greens and this season even orange.  

Camel Brown 

Camel Brown is primarily a colour from the Brown colour family. It is a mixture of orange and brown colour.
