Hi, homeowners! Brown sofas, mainly 'dark brown' ones, are often picked for their practicality. But Brown does not have to be tedious or necessary! You'll be looking at your living room in a new way after seeing these brown couch decorating ideas.
Everyone knows a 'brown sofa' is convenient, which is why so many retailers sell them, and so many of us buy them. Dark brown is most forgiving when it comes to dirt and stains, making it a smart choice for those with active families. One complaint that often accompanies the ownership of a 'brown sofa' is the assumption that the color is blah or boring. Not true! Get inspiration on how to style a 'brown sofa' so that it stays fresh and modern.
A brown leather couch can be a dramatic statement piece—especially when it's a Chesterfield. If you need to lighten up the tone of your 'living room', pair it with fashionable retro furniture. Those patterned slipper chairs append personality to space along with the surrounding textiles and shiplap walls.
If you obtained your 'brown leather sofa' at a flea market or vintage store, let that influence the rest of the room. A well‐worn brown leather sofa won't look scrappy when paired with antique wood decor. Get the pillows and throw blankets in on the theme, too.
This more relaxed neutral space would look bland without the comfy brown sofa set to warm things up. A mix of hues is seen on the table, pillows, and woven basket. It's just the right amount for a pop of color.
To make certain your light 'brown leather' sofa does not look out of place, repeat its element outside in the room. Here, a brown leather pouf sits across from the couch, tying the look together. Other brown inflections on the walls and surfaces keep the theme going.
A brown leather couch with tufting pairs well with traditional‐style furnishings and fixtures. In this living room, built‐ins contain stacks of vintage books that coordinate with a red rug underneath the brown sofa.
Brown sofas are not limited to one decorating way. Pair one with various patterns and prints for global style. In this space, framed fabric picks up the beige hues of the sofa while coordinating with pink pillows and decor accents.
Brown sofas work evenly well with cooler blues and greens. Apply accent chairs, window panels, or colorful pillows in cooler tones to add calm color to a space anchored by a brown sofa. In this living room, the furniture is paired with decorative wallpaper.
A 'dark brown' microfiber couch won't dominate a space when surrounded by lighter elements. Paint the walls a pale neutral, then choose artwork, accessories, and accent furniture in brighter or colorful hues to balance the darkness of the piece. Here, plenty of white furniture and light tans and oranges keep the couch from appearing too heavy.
Another way to prevent a brown leather sofa from overwhelming a room is to make most everything other white. You need a lot of a lighter color to balance a really dark one, so do not be shy. Fresh white ceilings, walls, and floors help conserve this comfortable nook light and bright.
Brown is a warmer neutral that plays well with wood and other warm tones; think of all the colors of fall! Pick accent tones in autumn colors 'such as' deep red, mustard yellow, or 'burnt sienna' to match typically with a 'brown sofa'. Those homeowners applied white brogue furniture and lots of pillows to balance out the brown seating.
Color schemes to living rooms including dark brown sofas occur naturally. This room's brown sofa looks right at home next to other nature‐inspired colors, such as the orange pouf, warm chartreuse green coffee table, and a set of lively patterned pillows. Natural textures similar the woven valances, stone fireplace, and wood floors pounded the couch, too.
Although this 'sofa' is more natural than intense brown, the 'same design' principles apply. Pull the couch into the center of the room, layer a console table along the back, then fill it with books or other objects to take the eye away from the sofa and toward the decorative display.
On the other hand, there's no need to hide your brown leather couch or cover it up. You can also choose to highlight its vibrant, cocoa color! Combine accent chairs that pick up the hue of the actual dark sofa and cover the couch with decorative pillows to lighten the visual weight of more colored furniture.
Work with your current brown sofa alternatively of against it by painting the walls a similar hue. Use the power of contrast to design high impact among light and dark with bright white covers and trim. The result is a stately room with bold, rich tones.
