Sweet like chocolate

From habitat plus - bedrooms

Dark brown might seem an unlikely bedroom colour, but its warm and smoky cocoon-like qualities make it a great choice for creating a dark cosy space.

Try smoky browns such as Resene Monkey or Resene Mondo, creamy browns such as Resene Milk Chocolate or try a wood stain such as Resene Colorwood Deep Oak or Resene Colorwood English Walnut. A cheap DIY hack is to stain pieces of ply and attach them directly to the wall. The wood stain will allow the grain of the ply to show through and deep brown shades will evoke a Victorian style parlour.

A deep chocolate brown bedroom

The deep brown colour palette gives this room a luxurious cosy feeling. The walls are painted in Resene Monkey, with the floor painted in Resene Space Shuttle. The pendant lamp and dresser are Resene Kabul, the bedside lamp is Resene Americano and the side table is Resene Kilamanjaro.

A moody and dramatic villa master bedroom

The Resene Mondo walls in this villa master bedroom create a moody and dramatic contrast to trims and internal shutters in Resene Alabaster.
