Brown is a hue that is frequently seen in nature, including in dirt, wood, and the fur, hair, skin, and eyes of both animals and people. The human eye often views brown as a neutral hue because it is so prevalent in natural areas. Umber and sienna, two of the first brown pigments, were derived from iron oxide-rich clay. In cave paintings, these ancient brown pigments were employed to represent the hair and skin of both animals and humans. Currently, the hipster movement, which frequently works to promote natural images and earthy hues in urban settings, is frequently linked to brown. The appeal of organic and natural food goods is also linked to the color brown, with brown packaging denoting the freshness of its contents. With camel clothes, tan leather, and warm wood providing a natural and subtle form of high-end design, brown is now seen as a symbol of old-fashioned luxury in both fashion and luxury interior design.
Brown can be used as a hue in itself or as a neutral, replacing black, white, or gray. Each strategy yields a significantly different outcome. By using only brown, whether as a solid hue or in a range of tones and tints, you may produce a warm and earthy design. The finest example of this is probably Scandinavian elegant interior design, which employs a variety of dark hues and organic materials to provide a relaxing, earthy atmosphere. This illustration uses a wide spectrum of brown hues, from buff to chocolate, layered to produce a subtle, opulent, and organic design. Using brown with other neutral colors like black and gray may provide depth and keep the brown's understated appearance. Instead, you may design a scheme that evenly balances the brown with other colors by employing a variety of hues that have the same visual weight. A monochromatic brown color scheme utilizes lighter tints and deeper hues of brown to produce a totally brown palette. The colors that go with brown depending on the sort of color scheme you wish to employ. Blue is used in a complementary brown color scheme. Red and yellow, which are next to orange (and hence brown's neighbors), complement dark green and purple, respectively.
The hues that border brown on each side of the color wheel are used in an analogous brown interior color scheme. While brown is an orange tint and so not precisely on the color wheel, red and yellow are nonetheless thought of as their surrounding hues. Violet and green are included in a triadic brown color scheme because they are equally spaced from brown on a contemporary color wheel. A large room with high ceilings can manage a lot of browns (in any shade) without it causing an overpowering weight, yet in a smaller area with ordinary ceiling height and no major architectural elements, a dark tone might seem oppressive if there is a lot of it. Less is more in compact rooms, so use delicate touches like pillows, footstools, artwork, or antique furniture. If you're still unsure, try softer colors of caramel and tobacco instead. The only time you should deviate from this rule is if you're intentionally designing a cozy winter snug, in which case the impression of a darker, more enclosed space wouldn't be a bad thing. So go ahead and pair deep terracotta or ochre walls with chocolate brown velvet curtains and vibrantly colored printed armchairs.
