Decorating with Espresso Brown

Add a positive jolt to your décor

Espresso – just the name makes you think of richness and intensity. Brown, and especially the shade of espresso, is a rich, earthy color that can anchor an entire room with spirit and coziness.

Because espresso is also about nature, it makes people feel comfortable and cocooned. In fact, it’s generally thought that shades of brown promote a feeling of warmth, protection and relaxation.

How to decorate with Espresso Brown

Espresso goes with most any interior design style from ultra contemporary to mid-century modern to comfortable Victorian, depending on the home furnishing pieces you select.

Make espresso brown a focal point for major parts of your décor, such as window coverings, painted walls, carpeting, rugs, sofas, countertops and more. 
Or use espresso as an accent, in solids or stripes and patterns, with throw pillows, backsplashes, window top treatments, artwork and more.

Espresso works well with many colors, especially when it’s coupled with crisp white or a warmer off-white or cream, which makes the rich brown shade pop. It can also be beautiful with:

  • Earth tones like amber or muted greens
  • Soft pink or powder blue
  • Yellow and gold tones
  • Silver and grey shades
  • Even hot pink or electric turquoise

This season, energize the look of your home with the addition of home furnishings in dramatic espresso.
