September Colour of the Month – Brown

Brown is the perfect autumnal colour. A grounding, wholesome colour that evokes feelings of warmth and cosiness. Brown works in perfect harmony with the increasing popularity of natural materials in our homes. It sits beautifully with natural soft furnishings such as jute, sisal, linens and soft cottons.

Whilst sitting harmoniously in a natural interior, brown is equally at home in a contemporary room setting. The growing popularity of the deep, dark, chocolate tones provide a striking backdrop for modern interiors. Dark brown adds a similar strong depth of colour as black or midnight blue. However, it brings with it an underlying warmth and gentleness. In the image above, Little Greene have used the combination of Scullery (318), Lute (317), Clay (39), Clay-Mid (153) and Purple Brown (8) to create a soft yet striking impact.

Sanderson Paints

Sanderson have launched an easy to use palette with 154 colours that complement their fabric and wallpaper collections.

There is a huge array of brown tones to choose from. There are cool browns such as taupe, richer darker browns such as chocolate and warm, golden browns such as tan.

When choosing a shade of brown, you can go for a statement bold tone or a tone to suit a gentle backdrop of colour. Briarwood (Image 1), a soft taupe, perfectly complements Sanderson’s Woodland Walk collection. Field Mushroom (Image 2) is also a perfect choice with its natural earthy tones and chalky appearance.
