The earthy tones of a brown dining room will create a cozy eating area, suited for any meal or occasion. Browse our photos of brown dining rooms for decorating inspiration. Chocolate brown with crisp white and gold accents can create an elegant, traditional dining space. Mix varying shades of wood with warm tans and beiges and the space immediately feels natural, organic, and modern. Brown works well with almost every other color, creating endless decorating possibilities. Light brown is the perfect complement to blues and greens, while darker brown looks great with saturated colors such as rich oranges and deep reds. In addition to paint, natural materials such as leather, copper, and wood add a dimension to the room and continue the color scheme. When designing a space, layering different shades of the same color can add visual interest to the room and help lighten the overall feel of the room. If going brown on all four walls seems heavy, choose an accent wall to still create an earthy effect.
