Green + Brown

Colors seen together in nature always work well in decorating, so don't be afraid to take a cue from Mother Nature. This is especially true when pairing brown and green, two of the most-popular earth tones used in home decor. For sophisticated simplicity, try decorating a green tree using only brown ornaments. Consider using several different shades of green for a layered, multi-toned look when decorating walls and hallways.

Parchment + White

Design tip: For greater dimension, throw a metallic into the mix — whether it's silver, gold or bronze. The introduction of the metallic will help break up the tone-on-tone appeal and add layered depth to the overall color scheme.
