Designing with CHOCOLATE color!

picture-571

Design your home by dipping it into chocolate, warm browns with toasty overtones that delight the senses and create a comfortable and inviting atmosphere.

Interior decorating trends are warming up to chocolate. Rich mochas, dusty cocoas, and deep coffee shades are cropping up in homes, bringing a depth to pallets that had previously been rather cool or just beige...

Banish any idea that dark walls make for a dark, dull room. Darker walls create a more sophisticated atmosphere. And don't be afraid to use a strong color in a small area.

To balance dark chocolate walls, bring in neutral upholstery, lamps, and accessories. This approach keeps the space from feeling too closed in. Crisp cream colors are a welcome contrast against the chocolate brown.

When you decide to bring darker colors into your home its important to counter this with some contrasting colors. Imagine how beautiful a living room or bedroom of rich chocolate browns could be with white accessories and accents. A few simple additions in dove grey or a lighter bisque color can really make a dramatic statement.

Sulky Chocolate Brown walls envelop this beautiful bed in a softness and warmth. It is just so inviting!

In this dining area all the dark brown walls that provide such coziness are Bittersweet Chocolate by Ben Moore, in case you were wondering!

The color brown and its lighter cousins in tan, taupe, beige, or cream make excellent backgrounds helping accompanying colors appear richer, brighter. Use brown to convey a feeling of warmth, honesty, and wholesomeness. Although found in nature year-round, brown is often considered a fall and winter color. It is more casual than black.

Here in one of my designs , I have used different shades of browns from deep chocolate brown to lighter browns, bronze and tans.

Chocolate brown kitchen cabinetry

Thanks to Brandon Barre Photography: Gorgeous, gorgeous kitchen! Chocolate brown stained kitchen cabinets shelves and coffee bar, white marble countertops, nickel fixtures, black iron lantern pendant lights, French doors, black crystal chandelier, white dining table with cabriole legs, French dining chairs and soft gray walls.

Another way to bring out the richness of chocolate browns is to add natural pieces such as plants.

Once your design is done, just curl up in your favorite sofa with a nice cup of hot thick italian hot chocolate and enjoy the rich warmth of your home design.
