The intense color of a chocolate brown sofa blends with various types of living rooms that include a wide spectrum of color. Accompany your sofa with a two-person chair and a matching reclining seat and choose paint colors that are in harmony with the existing decor. Avoid bright citrus colors as they don’t match dark sofas.
Neutral tones like beige, tan, and cream will go very well in a living room that has a chocolate brown sofa. The light walls provide a slight contrast but complement the color of the sofa. Paint all the walls in the room and leave the ceiling white. Place beige and cream cushions on the sofa to integrate it with the walls. Place white or beige lampshades on dark wood side tables. Hang photo frames or paintings with dark frames to integrate the entire decoration.
Forest green decorative wall
Dark colors can also match a chocolate brown sofa as long as you achieve balance by using light shades together. Paint a large forest green room accent wall and leave the remaining walls white. Incorporate potted plants in two areas of the room. Lean the sofa against the green accent wall and hang light decorations or framed pictures that contrast with the dark colors.
Raw white walls with floral decoration
If you want the chocolate brown sofa to stand out, paint the walls in the living room in raw white textured tones. Includes other dark colors to achieve contrast in the room. Install wood trimmings on the walls, a framed picture of embroidered flowers, or a wall tapestry. Accompany your sofa with dark brown or chocolate brown furniture and side tables and place beige or cream lamps to integrate the decoration.
Suitable pastel shades can also match a chocolate brown sectional sofa. Lavender and chocolate brown complement each other. However, other pastel shades like mint green or light blue might work as well. The same is not the case with neon tones, such as orange, pink, bright green and yellow. Paint the walls in a light pastel shade and leave the ceiling white. Hang decorations that are only slightly darker than the walls to create contrast and complement the brown sofa. Place light purple or light blue cushions on the sofa to integrate the decoration.
