Roundup: Brown and Blue Decor

Brown and blue seems to be a color combination that can appease all members of your household. While masculine in theory, using the right hues and perfect accents can create something much more from crisp modern spaces with chocolate browns and teals to country comfort with lots of wood and pale blues.

Here's a roundup of interiors and accents inspired by this color combination:

1 - A brown dining room turns contemporary with teal accents.
