Secrets from Our Color Expert: How to Style Brown Furniture

Brown furniture is extremely popular and it’s no secret why; it’s neutral and it’s great at concealing stains. When you have small children or pets, brown furniture is the way to go.

If you’re worried that brown furniture will make your space look dark and boring, don’t fret. When styled well, it can look fresh, fun, and fabulous!

We’ve asked one of our designers and color experts to share some style ideas and color schemes for living rooms with brown furniture to help you get started.

Living Room Ideas for Brown Couches


Paint – A wonderful way to brighten up a room with a brown couch is to paint the walls. Our color expert recommends blue and green as great choices. These colors are opposite brown on the color wheel, which makes them complementary to brown furniture.


Textures – Adding in textures can be a fun way to break up the monotony that can occur with brown furniture. Our Bronze Two-Piece Living Room Set features a fabric and leather fusion of textiles that is both stylish and eye-catching.


Patterns – A patterned rug, curtains or throw pillows are other great ways to incorporate color and style. A geometric pattern is contemporary and adds instant visual interest. Remember that with patterns, a little goes a long way. Our designer recommends sticking to one patterned piece per room.

We hope these ideas have gotten you excited to style your brown furniture. For more interior design inspiration, check out our Facebook and Instagram pages. You can Get It All at The RoomPlace online or in stores!
