Colors of Nature

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.

Trendy Color Combinations

Look toward popular color combinations. 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. When choosing trendy colors take the use of the room into consideration. For example, brown and pink are better suited to a bedroom than a family room.

Personal Choice

Take a sample of your brown furniture color into the paint store. Match it against store paint samples or an artist's color wheel finding shades that please you. If you are unsure, purchase a few colored paint sample sizes and try them on a small scale prior to committing to the color in the entire room.
