Classic brown timber across all surfaces

13 Mar 2024

Brunette timber brings a sense of natural beauty and warmth to an interior, whether you decide on lighter, medium, or darker wood tones, the brunette colour palette plays a deciding role in defining the room's style and mood. Wood flooring has been a popular choice in interior design for many years, but more recently its versatility stretches to walls, ceilings, and cabinetry, making it a go-to for interior designers and homeowners alike.

Brunette is the new brown


Our brunette colour group incorporates a range of brown tones, which can offer several advantages when used in interior design.  The colour group gives a sense of warmth and cosiness, it adds depth making a space feel inviting and comfortable. This can be especially beneficial in living areas, where you want to create a sense of comfort, relaxation and overall well-being.  The brunette colour group can complement a wide range of interior styles, from traditional to contemporary. It pairs well with various colour schemes and furnishings, providing endless design choices.

Brunette surfaces within residential interiors


Choosing brown wood surfaces within home design can be a versatile option that works well in both modern and traditional homes. Whether you prefer a rustic, textured look or a sleek, smooth finish, its flexibility allows it to seamlessly blend between modern and traditional, giving endless design possibilities.

Using rich tones from the brunette colour group in a modern home can create a contrast against sleek, minimalist furnishings and neutral colour palettes which are commonly found in modern design.  In a traditional home the rich brown shades can add a sense of luxury and can also create a warm and inviting feel that complements the traditional elements often found in older homes.
