CHOCOLATE CHIC

there is one design idea that has never failed- a chocolate brown room! always chic- chocolate chic!

i love chocolate walls in a room with lots of cream upholstery and dark furniture. billy baldwin did it best! you can never go wrong with chocolate brown- always chic, always glamorous, always stylish!

i have never seen a chocolate brown room i didn’t like. chic with any style- traditional, modern, country or rustic. glamorous in every setting- living room, dining room, bedroom or bathroom. stylish on walls, floors, and upholstery. always relaxing, always comfortable, always inviting!

chocolate brown- any style, every setting, on everything! it never fails, never wrong, always chocolate chic!

  1. What an amazing collection of Chocolate interiors. You know, I’ve been very attracted to chocolate again lately, even after its demise in the last few years. Recently posted about that so I am so glad to see someone else feeling the same way. Several someones, actually — based on the comments.

  7. I HAVE ALWAYS LOVED THAT MCALPINE OFFICE IMAGE FROM HOUSE AND GARDEN. CHOCOLATE IS SUCH A WARM COZY COLOR, GREAT FOR A SMALL SPACE. i DEFINITELY PREFER MINE WITH A DOSE OF GREY OR GREEN AND NOT TOO WARM THOUGH.

    1. to be honest i’ve never painted chocolate outside- for interiors i like ralph lauren stary night or kelly moore oxford brown
