How to Decorate Living Rooms With Brown and Teal
- 1). Center your living room with a teal blue leather couch. Couple it with a chocolate brown leather chair warmed with an afghan in a teal blue, brown and wheat tweed tossed casually across the back. Opt for a couch upholstered in linen with a teal and brown geometric pattern, paired with two easy chairs, one upholstered in brown-and teal-striped polished cotton and the other in plain teal.
- 2). Lay a natural brown sisal area rug. Anchor it with a seating area of teal blue director-style chairs, like those found on a movie set, situated around a large, rectangular coffee table of a dark wood, like teak or mahogany. Accessorize the table with three brown pillar candles in graduated heights balanced by an unadorned clear glass vase filled with white and blue sea glass. Give the room another touch of nature with hardwood floors.
- 3). Create an accent wall. Paint it white. Stencil or draw a mural or design in deep brown and teal highlighted with lime green. Opt for wallpaper in a teal and brown geometric design or brown and teal pinstripes on a beige background. Paint all four walls beige. Highlight them with paintings or prints in shades of brown and teal. Soften the room by hanging a quilt in a log cabin pattern featuring geometric shapes. Choose one with teal and brown as the main colors.
- 4). Dress the windows with bamboo roll-up blinds highlighted with teal blue window trim. Layer pale teal full-length sheer curtains under brown linen drapes with grommet tops suspended from wrought iron rods and pooled on the floor. Hang canvas Roman shades featuring teal, brown and pink horizontal stripes. Top them with a tailored teal valance.
- 5). Install a granite fireplace surround in shades of brown. Forgo a traditional mantel for three granite shelves arranged like steps on the fireplace facade. Accessorize them with a collection of Southwest pottery in shades of teal, turquoise and green.
