The Best Paint Colors for a Living Room With Brown Leather

Brown leather is such a dominant feature in a living room that it must be taken into consideration when decorating. Brown isn't a hard color to coordinate, although too much brown in a room can become drab and tedious. Keep your options open, and look to other natural--but masculine--colors.

Sage Green

Sage green, another earthy color, is appropriate when placed against medium-toned brown leather furniture. Choose a sage green that has a hint of gray to help the green recede into the background and showcase the rich brown leather furniture.

Warm Beige

A light, warm beige, when accented with trims of cream or white, will work with brown leather--a little too well, maybe. In larger rooms, that much beige, combined with the leather, could be just too much brown. In that case, a beige accent wall in a room of cream-colored paint is a smart alternative.

Pewter Gray

Pewter gray is a sophisticated color choice. The coolness of the neutral gray contrasts just enough with the brown of the leather to create a well-balanced, coordinated color scheme. If you're worried about the room becoming too dark, paint a cream accent wall.
