Our favorite shade from HGTV Dream Home 2022 is a velvety hue reminiscent of hot cocoa. Not only does it add instant warmth to any space, but it’s also a trendy hue that feels completely timeless.

Color Your Home in Comfort

Unlike the rich chocolates of yesteryear, this red-brown hue is deep yet muted, acting as a comfy neutral to any space. Whether you pull in the shade by painting your kitchen cabinets or opt for small notes through throw blankets and pillows, you’ll bring in of-the-moment color that’ll last more than a season.

Add in Depth of Color

Go ahead and embrace creamy white all over – in ivory walls, luxe marble and classic cabinets, but take a tip from this kitchen and bring in depth with a moment of sophisticated brown. The statement-making range hood in this heart of the home has a distressed finish that nods to a historic style.

Drape Your Windows

When you have a stunning view like this waterside retreat, floor-to-ceiling windows are a must for making the most of your surroundings. However, you also want the option to shut out the glaring sun when needed, as well as blocking out light at nights to keep sea turtles safe. The soft brown draperies cozy up this living room and add privacy.

Embrace the Glamour

Don’t be afraid to bring together a mix of materials and elements for an uber-luxe design. Damask-printed smoky wall panels blend with linear tilework and two paint colors: a muted brown on the back walls and sky-blue overhead. Instead of hanging an opulent chandelier from the ceiling, an oversized painting delivers the same amount of appeal.
