You cannot miss with black.
Black definitely makes a statement. It is bold and beautiful by itself and is a great accent color, too. As striking as it is, black can sometimes be too strong in large amounts. So the thing to do is mix it with other neutrals! And I especially love brown and cream. Using this color trio in decorating can result in a stunning room.
Black adds drama to your room and takes a neutral room from being a little bit boring to exceedingly beautiful!
Brown is safe and friendly.
Brown is understated. Unlike black, brown doesn’t usually cry for attention and it relates well to many other colors.
When decorating with black and brown, choose one to be the dominate color. Brown is the safer color, but black adds the pizazz and life! And always choose neutrals to tie it all together! I usually choose cream over white because white can sometimes feel too stark when paired with such dark colors. Cream adds warmth because it typically has yellow undertones.
Incorporate light neutrals!
