[color kreyv]: Chocolate Brown

I saw this first image today on one of my new reads, Design Chic, and I just knew I had to feature brown in my [color kreyv] series. It's not just any brown, it's chocolate brown.  Who doesn't love chocolate--besides weird people? (Okay, if you don't like chocolate, you're not weird. That was probably a little harsh. You're just...really different, that's all.) As for me, who is admittedly a little off, I do love chocolate, and I love the color of these walls. I think the key is pairing it with white to really make it pop. 

Even though I love it, I could never have this color in my house. If I was reminded of chocolate every time I looked in my room, I would weigh 627 pounds, because we all know, I have no self-control when it comes to sweets. Being reminded of chocolate that often is just looking for trouble, if you ask me. I could really go for a Twix right about now.

  1. I love chocolate anything, including chocolate painted walls. I had my great room painted in a chocolate brown last winter and I love the way it warms up the large, 2 story space. I am finding it a bit of a challenge to choose accent colors though.

  2. ooh...I love chocolate! These rooms are definitely candy for the eye! You are inspiring me to break out my paint brush!
