Although gray and greige paint colors are still going strong, brown hues like taupe and beige are on their way back in! These colors are great to use as wall colors because of their rich, warm tones. These were mainstays for years and years before the popularity of grays came on. The great thing about using these colors is you don't have to worry about them going out of style because they are truly a classic choice.

Another way to use shades of brown in your decor is by introducing it with fabrics. When you think about browns you may think dark and heavy but it doesn't have to be that way. The window treatments shown above have a bright creamy background with rich brown embroidery. This combination works so well because of the stark contrast. Keep this in mind when using shades of brown in your decor.
Finally, you can use shades of brown in the furniture in your home. Brown upholstery is VERY forgiving and can stand the test of time especially if you have kids or pets. Again, when using browns remember to balance that darker richer color with a lighter contrast. Try light tans and creams on the pillows for a balanced neutral look!
