Decorate With Chocolate Color Palette. A chocolate color palette is a warm, gender-neutral color scheme that works with any style of decor. Light, medium and dark browns combine with rich creams to create a chocolate color palette that is suitable for any room in the house. Due to this being a very neutral selection of colors, it is a sensible choice if you are considering selling your home in the future. Designing a chocolate interior is a simple process, and this is a color scheme that will create a warm, welcoming effect, whether the style is period, contemporary or modern.

Decorate With Chocolate Color Palette :

  1. Select a range of colors. Velvety light browns, earthy medium browns, rich dark browns and creams should be combined to create a wealth of texture. Use lighter shades such as creams or light browns on the walls in dark areas, and darker shades of earthy medium browns on well-lit walls such as window walls. Smaller areas such as skirting boards and door frames should be painted with deep, almost black, chocolate browns. Create an accent wall with a richly patterned brown and cream wallpaper.
  2. Create a dark, cozy effect by using a dark flooring, whether you decide on wooden flooring or carpet. This is the best choice if you are going to be using a lot of light browns and creams on the walls. For a lighter effect, or to counteract a darker selection of wall colors, use a lighter wooden flooring or a fawn or cream-colored carpet. For a really natural feel, use a natural fiber carpet such as hemp, jute, seagrass or sisal, all of which are extremely hard-wearing.
  3. Introduce really deep, dark chocolate colors in the form of furniture. Go as dark as possible — think of the color of really dark chocolate. No matter how dark you go, it will still be a softer color than black. For a lighter finished effect, furniture made from a lighter wood such as pine is one option. Alternatively, paint the furniture cream, and use cushions to add the really dark splashes of color.
  4. Add texture and depth to the room with different fabrics. Create a space that delights the senses and encourages touch with suede, velvet, leather and satin. Pile cushions and throws on sofas, chairs and beds to create a decadently relaxing space, and continue the exploration of texture on the floor with long-pile rugs.
  5. Combine wooden and brown leather photo frames, and continue the natural feel of the room with a few other well-chosen accessories. Floral displays in cream vases and small wooden planters are attractive additions to the room. Create a centerpiece with a bowl of fir cones. Chocolate scented candles complement the theme of the room, and a few chocolate-shaped candles on a plate will make guests look twice. A retro vintage Hershey’s chocolate advertising tin sign completes the room.
