At first it may be so if they suggest us brown paint for painting and decorating the house, let’s be a little reluctant, unless we like this color, because for many people it is boring, even ugly.
But today I come to break the spear in your favor, because despite what you think about this color, if properly combined, it is one of the best colors for interior painting.
And that’s exactly what I want to teach you: Combine brown. How?
With these examples of colors that combine with brown in different spaces.
So keep in mind the colors, let’s get started.

Brown and blue. I wanted to start with my favorite color, and combine it with brown, blue.
Both are representative colors of nature, which is one of the reasons why they combine so well.
Also, blue gives you joy and liveliness that brown does not have.

Brown and fuchsia. One might think, without seeing them together, that fuchsia pink and brown have too many personalities to be together, and while it is true that these are two colors that contribute a lot, together, they create a perfect pairing.
If combined, one of two in small doses, such as fuchsia in this case, are perfect.

Brown and yellow. There are few colors that combine well with yellow, but without a doubt, one of the best colors is brown.
Yellow is very strong, it gives off energy and vitality, and therefore the calmness and sobriety of the brown color is perfect.
The tones you see above are the sweet and trendy spicy honey from the bruger and one of its beautiful yellows.
If you don’t want to paint the walls in both colors, you can apply brown on them and put yellow accents on the pillows, textiles, decorative accessories and other elements, creating a successful decoration.
Brown and brown. Not all colors accept the same color, but in different tones as brown.
But brown naturally accepts them.
Therefore, if we love this color to decorate the house and do not want to add it anymore, we can easily mix it with other softer brown shades and create a monochrome palette, always successful.

Brown and white. As you can imagine, there is a scene in which brown and white are combined.
White is an achromatic, neutral color, so it combines with all other colors.
But somewhat cold, combined with brown it gets the warmth it lacks.
So: white and brown is a sound yes.

Brown and gold. Brown is a sleek, sober color, ideal for when you’re looking for sophisticated and elegant environments, so it’s no surprise that gold combines so well with it.
And not only gold, but also bronze, silver and other decorative metal materials, because although they are completely different from gold, they have that touch of elegance that so favors the color brown.

Brown and orange. Another of my favorite colors combined with brown is orange.
Brown gives the energy, strength and joy she lacks.
Although we see it in this room in combination with a light brown color, it does so with darker browns.
And if you want to add it properly, add brown in large doses, for example to the walls, and then accents bright orange.
Definitely a hit.
Brown and pink. Before we saw how fuchsia pink combines very well with brown.
Well, it has to be said that pink and pale pink tones do it just as well.
This combination is ideal for creating softer and sweeter environments.

Brown and turquoise. The perfect color combination that combines, on the one hand, the sobriety and elegance given by brown and the freshness and vitality provided by turquoise.
If we add turquoise in small accents, even better.
Here you can see colors that combine with turquoise.
Let’s move on to the next color.
Brown and mint green. Mint green is another color that we can easily use if we want to add color to brown.
It is a gentle color, but a subtle strength that goes well with brown.
In addition, it is very fresh in color, so it contrasts very well with the leaden and calm brown color.
And if you like this color, learn to combine it with these mint green colors.
Brown and gray. Gray could not be missing from this list of colors that combine with brown.
As you well know, gray is a neutral color, rather neutral, and combines with all other colors.
But why does it go so well with brown?
Well because it is gray, which is a neutral, cool color, and when combined with brown, a warm color where they exist, it gives the necessary warmth that gray lacks.
Even if you use dark brown like the one we see above these lines. It always works.
Here you can also see more colors that combine with gray.
Brown and wood. As you can imagine, wood tones work great with brown as well.
And I put wood as a material that combines with brown, because we all have a lot of wood at home, in furniture, floors, doors, etc. and it is worth saying in case anyone doubts.
So brown combines, and does so very well, with wood.
In addition to these colors that we have seen combined with brown, there are many others, and if you want to combine brown with any of them and have doubts, leave a comment that I will be happy to answer.
