Decorating with Brown and Black -- any pictures?
I have spent over 10 years decorating my home. My master bedroom is still not done. At first, I could not settle on colors and I really have not found an inspiration picture that both DH and I could agree on. I tend to like the Baker clean and crisp look and he likes very traditional and busy stuff.
I have a very large room (about 19x21) and 9 windows! MY bed set is a Cherry wood four poster bed with matching nightstands, dresser and high boy from lexington. I would love to change it but DH will not budge-- our first purchase when we got married 23 years ago! I also have a beautiful writing desk, two Ethan Allen Queen Anne chairs and ottoman from our previous home that needs new fabric.
I am finally set on a color scheme but can't seem to execute it. I want a combination of creams, browns, and black. The problem is that anything with black tends to be either too modern or too stark. Anything with brown tends to have light blues/greens which I like but could not live with it for too long; just not my favorite, too feminine for my taste.
Anyone has pictures of this type of combination? I got tired of the old white builders wall so I painted them brown (Behr Hazelhurst 3A10-5) and the ceiling a lighter tone (Behr, Macadamia 3A10-3). This added some color. I have lived with this color for 3 years so I know I want browns.
Can anyone help? I will post pictures if anyone can tell me how.
