Color Psychology: Decorating with Brown
Welcome back to Decorating with Color weekly series. If you missed any of my earlier posts in this series, click on the links to learn about decorating with Black, Blue, Green, Violet, Orange, and Yellow. Today, I will explore decorating with the most popular neutral color…..Brown.
I am sure most of you (if not all) have something that is Brown in your home. It is such a popular color in interiors mainly because of wooden elements that are usually brown in color such as floors, furniture, and cabinetry.
Brown results from mixing the primary colors (red, yellow, blue). Depending on the ratio of each color in the mix, different shades of brown develop. Some shades of brown have a red undertone, others are more yellow and so on.
