Fresh Ideas for Your Home
A shot of espresso adds
a positive jolt to your decor.
This rich brown color will energize the look of your home.
Espresso – just the name makes you think of richness and intensity. Brown, and especially the shade of espresso, is a rich, earthy color that can anchor an entire room with spirit and coziness.
Because espresso is also about nature, it makes people feel comfortable and cocooned. In fact, it’s generally thought that shades of brown promote a feeling of warmth, protection and relaxation.
Espresso goes with most any interior design style from ultra contemporary to mid-century modern to comfortable Victorian, depending on the home furnishing pieces you select.
Think soft and supple espresso leather for a masculine lodge look.
Consider floral prints with espresso coloration for a Victorian feel.
Contemplate jungle patterns filled with espresso shades for a bohemian vibe.
Espresso works well with many colors, especially when it’s coupled with crisp white or a warmer off-white or cream, which makes the rich brown shade pop. It can also be beautiful with:
Yellow and gold tones
Silver and grey shades
Earth tones like amber, sage green and rust
Even hot pink, electric turquoise or acid green
Think espresso as a focal point for major parts of your décor, such as carpeting, rugs, sofas, painted walls, countertops and more. Or use espresso as an accent, in solids or stripes and patterns, with throw pillows, backsplashes, window top treatments, artwork and more.
Invigorate your décor this season with the addition of home furnishings in dramatic espresso.
