Welcome to our gallery of gorgeous living rooms featuring comforting earth tones!
“Earth tones” describes a palette of colors inspired by nature. Browns, grays, greens, and tans work together harmoniously to mimic the color scheme found in the great outdoors.
Design schemes featuring earth tones are warm, rich, and invoke a sense of unparalleled comfort.
Whether you yearn for a modern or more traditional home, earth tones work well with almost any plan. Rooms can be decorated entirely in complementary earth tone colors, and as neutrals they can also host a bold splash of primary color for added interest.
Earth tones in home design have been popular for decades due to their versatility and beauty.
In a well designed home, this color palette will always impress, and is a safe choice for those looking for a luxurious and relaxing atmosphere that is as comfortable as it is pleasing to the eye.
The above living room features sages, creams, browns, and tans to stunning effect. The white framed coffee and end tables stand out amongst the neutrality of the rest of this richly designed home.
The soft glow of the lamps, a cozy fireplace, soft sofas, and an animal hide wall hanging make this room luxuriously comfortable and appealing. An extensive bar area allows for easy access for drinks, and leads directly to the main living area for lively conversation with friends.
