The ever-changing trends in the interior design world have brought into the foray another one of my favorite colors back in style – BROWN!
Brown might seem like a risky choice for interiors especially when you’re planning to use it for private and intimate spaces like your bedrooms. But, the color brown has so many variations and hues that you will fall head over heels in love with, particularly the endless ways to induct this color into your space.
To decorate with brown in your bedrooms, you don’t always have to stick to painting the walls with the color. Instead, you could look into using fabrics, materials, laminates and so much more that come within the same color spectrum.
So I hope you’re ready to dive into these brown bedroom ideas and give this gorgeous color a chance to shine within your happy place!
Don’t restrict your brown bedroom ideas to darker tones. Instead, you could look towards lighter tones such as sandy brown and honey brown to brighten up your neutral-themed rooms without adding too many bright colors.
Sand tones walls and furnishings maintain a light and airy atmosphere within your bedrooms and pair wonderfully with white and beige accents to create a very modern space.
Go For Wall Paneling
For those looking to add more character to their brown color scheme bedrooms, wall paneling brings in that wondrous yet magical spark to create a “wow” factor into your space.
Get rid of regular headboards and opt for a panel behind your bed to serve as an accent wall. The brown panel will highlight your side tables just perfectly!
Classic Wooden Furniture Is Classy!
You can never go wrong with wooden furnishings in any interior space, especially with bedrooms. And when you’re looking to add a pop of brown to your space, wooden furniture has no competition.
Brown bedroom décor stands as a timeless option and can be paired with multiple color schemes, thus giving you the opportunity to morph your room’s interiors to suit a wide range of your favorite aesthetics.
Add a touch of beachy and coastal magic with a rattan bed to make a room that always feels like a vacation home!
Rattan furniture adds a perfect amount of brown hues to your room as they don’t always come in uniform colors. The fibers used to weave and create these beautiful pieces have variations in their vertical grain pattern. The final product looks beyond stunning!
This way, your room will be filled with multiple brown tones instead of a single hint of brown.

Go For Wooden Flooring!

There is a wide range of grain patterns and brown shades to choose from – spoil yourself with a lovely pick from these choices, why don’t you?
Highlight Your Wardrobes
Traditional wooden wardrobes will forever be a preferred choice in many homes. And while some choose to finish it off with colored or textured laminates, glass, or mirrored doors, why not opt for a neat polishing of your chosen wood to make your wardrobe really stand out in your room?
This looks wonderful especially if you have large wardrobes spanning an entire wall within your space. So go right ahead and add it to the top of your list for brown bedroom ideas!
Consider the Contemporary Finish
The term “contemporary design” describes present-day, in-vogue designs. Clean, curving lines, natural materials, strong contrasts, cold tones, and attention to quality are characteristics of this design aesthetic.

An Autumnal Treat
Brown leaves and hints of yellow & orange in the trees are always the first things that come to mind when you think of autumn. This brown color combination has no parallel when you are looking to add multiple colors to your bedroom color palette.
Creating a cozy autumn-inspired room is all about layering in your color tones and warm blankets. Brown blankets and pillow covers can be complemented with hints of green (plants) and yellow ochre (throw pillows and rugs) to finish up your wonderful fall-toned bedroom.
