Reader’s question

"I am 23 years old. I have brown furniture in my bedroom. I would like to repaint it and I am asking your help on what colors to select. Could you suggest me two-tone color combinations?"

Our recommendation
Colors combined with brown furniture and feature a teen room are various shades of blue: air force blue, royal blue, navy blue, cyan. You can also combine other colors with blue and brown like light gray, elephant gray, mushroom shade, camel shade and light tan.
The choice of the right two-tone scheme for the room depends on the size of the space and the colors of the other room elements, such as curtains, bedspread, and carpets. The selection of the bright or pale color scheme depends on what kind of atmosphere you wish to create in the room.
