Ask a Decorator: Breaking Up Browns

Reader Steven asked Decorating Den:

“My new apartment has medium chocolate brown carpet… how can I break up the brown ? I was planning on getting furniture with a medium cherry finish, will that look good against the brown? Any ideas and suggestions would be great.”

Decorating Den’s Chesapeake Interior Decorator Patricia Valore had some tips for Steven:

“I would shop for pecan, walnut or an oak wood. Try to use creams and whites in your upholstered pieces. And, add a warm hue as your accent color, such as yellow or a light green. If you’re allowed to paint your walls use a soft color to lighten up the space.”
