What do you make of brown? I love it in its natural form, like in wood and stone. Brown is natural and its masculine but often used to soften a lot of colours as well as giving the area a warm and secure feeling. If you looking to create a tranquil and stable environment brown is your colour. Beige and taupe are complimentary neutrals for brown. In the photograph below, I love the way the steel bed frame is softened by the brown interior.
