An Accent Wall

A single dark wall can harmonize without darkening the environment too much. Light tones such as white and gray on the rest of the walls balance this dark tone.
All the Walls in Brown
Applying an intermediate range of brown is ideal for those of us looking to bring a bit of formality to the modern room. We see that it is decorated in various neutral tones. Lighter walls, soft camel sectional sofa and furniture in natural wood with a glossy finish. To create visual interest in our room we can incorporate niches or shelves framed in white with focused lights in each space instead of placing a painting or a mirror.
Small Wall Portions
A modern room looks organized and elegant. One way to add more warmth is to create a subtle contrast without breaking the harmony of the environment by including small areas of the wall in brown. In this design, both ends of the center wall implement two large wall niches that complement the beautiful design of the fireplace.
Furniture that matches brown walls
The walls in these colors and under the modern approach generally include furniture in other neutral tones and other shades of brown. The entertainment center, shelves or bookcases are usually the same shape, linear in appearance, light and made of the same material so as not to break the decorative scheme. The coffee table can make a difference in relation to the type of finish and the shape. For example, the glass top or an ottoman.
Colors Accent Decorative Objects
The brown color combines with almost all the other colors, but it must be used sparingly to give it the modern look we are looking for. Adding small doses of color to paintings, accent pillows, a sofa, rug or ornaments will bring more joy to the environment.
To create a refreshing atmosphere in our living room, one option is to add green to the different accessories such as cushions, plants and paintings.
Wood wallcovering immediately adds a warm, natural effect. So that the room does not look so rigid due to having many objects in a linear way, circular shapes are added in the ornaments, coffee table and decorative lamps.
Finally, another alternative to make your room with brown walls look more cheerful, is to use patterns on decorative cushions as in this design.
