The bedroom is a safe haven, a sanctuary where you come back after a hard day’s work. It is a very personal space and needs to reflect your personality to give you a sense of home coming. An artfully and intelligently room can be a boon. You will find calm if you can achieve a balance in creating a color scape which matches your intent.
Brown is a colour which ties together a sense of style and creates a cohesive space which makes for a restful space for you. ‘Brown is often side lined in interior design as it is termed boring. But it is not so. The right shades used in the right combination can create a sophisticated ambience and look stunning in the bargain’, says Pooja Bagri of Bagri Interiors.

Contrast combinations with brown in your bedroom
At times strong contrasts play an interesting role in brightening up your decor theme. White and brown make a ‘feel’ contrast as brown is perceived as a warm shade while white is cool. But white walls and floor with dark brown leather covered furniture make for a very surprising theme. You can add accents of red in the bedspread and rug to add to the contrast.
Accents of blue and yellow also go well with a brown themed bedroom. Liven up the space with a few planters, adding a green hue.
Do remember that brown screams for minimalistic and clutter free environs. Keep the lines clean and sharp and enjoy your crisp brown bedroom!
