What's Inside

Use Wood

Brown is an earthy tone, and it means that you can and should use lots of natural wood in your decor. Use pictures, frames, tables, accessories, and other accents in this material. Especially if you’re using white walls in your interior.

Wall Hangings

When it comes to wall hangings above the brown sofa and putting picture frames aside, macrame hangings are perfect. They can be in the same earthy color tones and continue the natural color scheme. Mixing and matching different styles also works.

Use Throws

Brown sofas (especially if it’s leather) benefit significantly from luxury throws. They look natural and help accentuate the couch. This especially works well if your interior uses off-whites and natural grey tones.

Fur and Lace

If we’re using natural materials such as leather, then using more of them in furs and lace helps create a harmonious look. Nothing seems off-place in such a design.

Cow Hide Rug

The cowhide rug and its pattern are natural and neutral. You can use this type of carpet in just about any interior. With a brown sofa in the living room, it will help anchor the whole look.

Shades of Brown

In any interior design, you can choose to use one key color (brown) and add just a few pops of accent color. So in this interior, we can see the brown sofa as the focal point and the rest of the room complementing it. Only the accent pillows pop to break the visual line.
