Just like the chocolate we love to eat, the color chocolate used in interior décor is dark, luscious and rich. Chocolate is a bold color that can be used in a similar way as black, but with more interest and a bit of softness. This beautiful color can communicate high-style or it can be very warm and inviting, depending how you use it.

Just like edible chocolate, which we mix with everything from raspberries to hazelnuts to make it even tastier, decorative chocolate can be combined with a myriad of colors to enhance its beauty and flavor!

The color chocolate looks great,
– Layered with several lighter neutrals, such as cream, taupe, gray and beige.
– Together with pastels, such as baby blue, light pink or butter yellow.
– Paired with snowy white.
– Integrated with earth tones, like gold, apricot and sage green.
– Combined with bold colors, such as tangerine, acid green or tomato red.

Consider using a touch of chocolate in your house on a painted accent wall, rugs and carpeting, window treatments, upholstery, headboards, table linens, furniture and tile back-splashes or countertops.
