Brown Paint Schemes
Brown paint is back in a big way, and it’s little wonder. Ranging from earthy, grounding and nature-inspired to deep, rich and luxurious, brown can create a wide range of moods in any room – and any outside space, too – without ever feeling cold.
How to Use Brown Paint
Taking up the mantle from grey, brown paint is the new use-anywhere neutral. Paler, sandy tones like Stony Ground and Jitney create beautiful brown bedrooms, creating a warm and soothing atmosphere with the lightest of touches. Pink-toned Dead Salmon is an on-trend brown kitchen option, while Mouse’s Back and Broccoli Brown work wonders in home offices, creating seriously studious spaces with a hint of cool. For dining rooms and living rooms, go for a rich deep brown like Tanner’s Brown or Salon Drab for luxuriously inviting vibes.
Light Brown Paint Colours
Move over, magnolia. Light brown is a super versatile option for walls, ceilings and trim alike – soft and relaxing enough to be used in any sort of space, but with an undeniable trend-led touch. For a warm, enveloping space, try pairing pinky-brown Dead Salmon with a woodwork colour from our Red Based Neutrals group, such as Pointing or Dimity. For something more unexpected, try flipping the contrast the other way, with Jitney walls and Tanner’s Brown woodwork.
Dark Brown Paint Colours
Rich espresso and chocolate shades are the ultimate in luxury, creating inviting spaces for cosy evenings and intimate gatherings. Dark brown paint can bring just as much drama as designer favourite black, just with a little extra warmth – try it on a single wall for an eye-catching feature, to highlight architectural details or trim, or all over for a truly enveloping feel.
Try a Rich Red
Brown isn’t the only wall colour that’s back in a big way for 2022. If you like the richness and depth of brown, you might also like a berry, burgundy or plum from our selection of red paint colours.
