Choose a paint color that showcases the furniture, suits your mood and is visually appealing in the room. Orange and yellows of a desert sunset, variations of pale green, peach and pink found in a spring garden -- or the colors from the sand and tropical pale blue sea will all work with brown furniture. Keep your paint colors lighter in hue than the brown to keep the natural theme in balance.
Paint colors that will serve well as a background for your brown furnishings are pale blues, soft shades of pink and if you are bold, tropical turquoise or coral.
Match it against store paint samples or an artist's color wheel finding shades that please you.
