Decorate with Brown / Chocolate Brown Color Trend


Because of its earthy connotations, chocolate works well in any setting where you wish to convey warmth, comfort and security.

Make your home ready for cosiness with cushions in rich hues. Chocolate looks warm and inviting alongside autumnal shades like burnt oranges, deep reds and forest greens to creams. Subtle natural tones of caramel, tan, cream and white even a dash of dusty pink. 

Another easy option to decorate with chocolate brown is to embrace the warmth of wood, especially in its darker essences – or another very trendy option now could be for example the Shou Sugi Ban wood finish.



Decorate with Chocolate Brown /the Shou Sugi Ban wood


Talking of dark wood finishes, have you heard of Shou Sugi Ban? It’s a very interesting ancient Japanese architectural technique that was used to preserve wood by charring the surface with a hot flame.

Originating back in 18th century Japan, Shou Sugu Ban is a particularly striking method of preserving wood with fire in order to weatherproof it. Despite being a very old method of treating wood, it is flexible enough to look stunning in both modern and rustic settings. In modern architecture you can expect Shou Sugu Ban to be seen in both exterior and interior settings, even being used on furniture and décor.
