The light walls and dark furniture in this room create a balanced blank canvas. The brown couch in this room offers a contrast to the lighter white, gold, and pink elements.
Pink and gold naturally exude elegance so it is a good color scheme choice if you want your space to be sophisticated. Green and brown work together to create a calming atmosphere reminiscent of nature, making them a perfect color pair. This living room uses rich brown tones and old-fashioned accents to create a classic space.
The addition of golden yellow throw pillows and the position of the furniture relative to the window lightens the room and provides an overall cheerful atmosphere. It is true that you aren't using color to create an appealing space but you do have the elements of shape, shade, and layout on your side.
However, this black and brown room is an example of how dark elements can work really well together, particularly the couch.
The shape of the sofa, black metal accents, and marbled walls come together to give this room a glamorous and contemporary look.
This space is an example of using shape to create a modern style, with the table and the lighting utilizing geometric forms. While this style works well in a home living room, the overall look emulates a space you would find in a museum.
This space uses large, overstuffed sofas and chairs, warm lighting, and a fireplace to create a cozy atmosphere. Pillows, curtains, and furniture in varying shades of brown contribute to the comforting warmth that is portrayed in this living room, creating a visually pleasing look. From bold walls to subtle hints, incorporating patterns is an easy way to stay true to a color scheme while still adding some depth. This living room stays true to the neutral color scheme and minimalist style, but it still manages to achieve a fun and playful look.
The walls, sofa, and floor of this living room are similar in color and shade. A classic brown fabric sofa, living chairs in vintage print, and dark wood trim come together to give this space a nostalgic feel.
The picturesque window extends the vintage vibe by peeking into a simple backyard but also lends brightness to the space, making it feel open and airy. Whether you are purchasing a new sofa or already have one and want to refresh your existing space, brown is a great choice for living room furniture.
If you haven't settled on a sofa quite yet, be sure to experiment with different shades of brown to find the perfect one for your space and style.
