Inspiration Board: Green & Brown

We love decorating with green and brown, two of our favorite colors here at Cottage Home! The neutral and earthy shade of chocolate allows for the green accent pieces to take the center stage and show their beauty. Pairing the rich chocolate with green and white allows for sense of balance and tranquility to be created. A simple horizontally striped rug and recycled glass wave table lamp give a living room or bedroom just the right amount of visual texture.
