This classic stairway features a crisp white railing topped with a chocolate brown handrail and matching brown steps, creating a high-contrast look. A rug in the foyer coordinates with the color palette, and a globe pendant light adds a touch of modern flair.
This custom-made partition featuring mullioned windows promotes views and illumination while visually separating the foyer and the kitchen. It helps compartmentalize this beach condo, maximize ocean views and transmit light into interior spaces.
Restful colors of chocolate brown and cream accentuate the furnishings in this stylish transitional master bedroom. The simply-designed chest of drawers complements the ornate lamp and window treatments, and allows the yellow floral arrangement to catch the eye.
The chocolate brown walls in this bedroom recede into the background, actually making the small room appear larger. The slipcovered headboard and crisp white bedding add a contemporary, hotel-like feel and provide contrast against the antique desk and console.
Nothing says warmth more than rich, chocolate brown tones mixed with gray, aubergine and pumpkin orange. Designer Andreas Charalambous added lights behind the wall to illuminate this bedroom with a soft, intimate glow, allowing the orange accent wall to stand out among the deeper elements of the space.
Making good use of the available space in this large bedroom, a wall size headboard with bedside reading sconces envelopes the bed and nightstands. A rich chocolate brown with a stripe pattern, the headboard coordinates with the lighter beige bench. White linens match the white walls and an armless chair.
Large windows let lots of natural light into this sophisticated living room. The combination of a chocolate brown sofa, navy blue walls, lime green accessories and patterned accents creates a relaxing but lively space.
In a living room with a white backdrop, chocolate brown furnishings and red accessories can make a strong statement. Designer Matthew Patrick Smyth pairs red and brown together as complementary shades. The warm tones in each color can be used to create a cozy living room environment.
