Brown and White with Hint of Blue


Decorating is one of my frustrations :-) But because of the many choices and beautiful things you can find in the store, it is just too hard to decide.  Anyways, the picture above is one of the model house's living area. Our family room is the same lay out with the picture sans the white built-in shelf. I love to have the shelf but when we got our house the builder can no longer add the shelf as it is already done. We were advised though to have it built by someone else.

The color scheme of this family room is brown and white and they have deep blue [looks like purple] accents with the throw pillows as well as the curtains. I like how it makes the room warm but the brown wall is too dark for my taste. We are currently looking for nice wall colors and this picture is something of an inspiration. Maybe when I apply it to our wall I make it a little lighter since we also have brown and espresso furniture.

that wall is the exact same color of the walls on our kids' bedrooms..i think it is beautiful but the husband said it is too dark..he was the one who chose the color to begin with but he said he preferred a lighter color like you do..btw, i like that color combo for a living room

Brown, white and blue work well together, I think. I love the relaxing feel of the room. I wouldn't mind coming home to something like that everyday :)

Lady_Haze said...

Yupp, I was going to say exactly the same thing. The whole room need a bit of redecorating and more colours. Oh well, just an opinion hehe.

nice combo ang brown and white, pwd pud ka muaccent ug lighter shade of apple green to make the accents pop. ako pud kay planning to change the wall color of our kitchen kay after the countertop/backsplash upgrade namo, murag apt man magchange to another color other than yellow. to help you out, adto ka sa paint stores kay naa silay nga pamphlets didto nga magsuggest which color goes with the accents etc. lisud jud mag choose labi na ug daghan kaau kag gusto. heheh bpc hop!

I love model houses kasi walang mga bata na naglalaro kaya the decorations still looks good and intact. Though i really would love to decorate our living room , i hesitated because of the kids

Genny said...

Your room is very pretty and neat...

emzkie said...

beautiful family room mommy Bless.

Great colors! But for me, though it has calming effect on most people, blue is perfect for bedrooms. Try green instead, green invokes feelings of tranquility and self-control. =)

Marie said...

A lovely combination of colors! I love nut-colored furniture, we have red walls matched with it :)

Teresa Martinez said...

Brown, white with deep blue accents are not commonly used together but I think they combine well.

Adin B said...

I can see our new place when it is finally done to have the same color combo almost. Beautiful!

che said...

Me, too. One of my frustrations is decorating. I think I don't have an eye in creativity. Even if I choose some layouts, I get easily overwhelmed with what I see. That layout is very nice and I agree with you, the wall is kind of dark for a living room.

Jessica Cassidy said...

that is a nice color combination Momi Dhemz :-) I have no idea how to decorate good thing my hubby does :-) Dropping by from BPC.

Rcel said...
