Working with Rich Browns

Like shaved chocolate afloat a frothy cappuccino, browns are sumptuous and comforting. Colors of the earth, warm and rich browns are a pleasure to work with and are very versatile. Deep chocolatey browns add a touch of sophistication and elegance to a space. Browns also suggest reliabilty, approachability and groundedness. The currently popular chocolate browns work well with so many colors. Brown with Robins Egg blue is a great pairing and deep browns also look fabulous with greens and green blues such as teal. Above see Benjamins Moore's Chocolate Sundae 2113 paired with Sunlit Coral 2170, a warm and tempting combination.

A new color trend for baby girls is rich brown coupled with pink and for boys brown with apple green. The color combinations are modern and yet still so sweet!
