Chestnut Color Palette

Who said decorating with brown is boring? Chestnut is a warm brown hue that works with virtually any color. We love the colors, patterns and textures in this eclectic space. To get a similar look, try (from L to R), Behr Sweet Molasses (PPU5-20), Valspar Cosmic Blue (4008-10C), Glidden Papyrus Paper (50YY 65/071) and Sherwin-Williams Sequin (SW 6394).

Colorful, Sleek Living Room

To create a playful yet functional room, designers added a durable, warm brown leather sofa that is easy to clean. Patterned pillows and a sleek coffee table add extra color and texture.

Bright and Airy Kitchen

Sleek, warm wood cabinets pair with elegant white marble countertops in this contemporary kitchen. Open shelving creates an airy atmosphere and keeps everyday dishes handy. The focal point of the space is the marble-clad island, which provides extra counter space, as well as houses more storage and an integrated microwave.
