Color Crave: Espresso

Benjamin Moore Silhouette

We Like Espresso

Deep browns make any room feel cozy, snug and secure…think cocoon. Go bold with your pillows, rugs and accessories.

Farrow & Ball - Tanner Brown

“Tanner Brown looks almost black in low lighting, but it turns brown when paired with warm red tones but I like to pair it with White Tie by Farrow & Ball.”

— Tula Summerford, Design by Tula

Farrow & Ball - Mahogany

“Mahogany is a rich, stately color, a great back drop for organic colors and textures.”

  Warren Fluharty, owner of Warren Fluharty Designs

Benjamin Moore - Silhouette

“Silhouette is a rich, warm color that can add drama to any space. Use the color on interior doors or inside a coffered or tray ceiling for visual interest.”

  Vicky Serany, Southern Studio Interior Design

Amy Howard Paint - Windsor

“Amy Howard’s Windsor One Step Paint is a rich brown resembling Nestle semi-sweet chocolate morsels – yum! This beautiful color goes well as the first coat beneath Venetian Brown Toscana Powder Paint for an amazing old-world finish.”

  Laurie Ledbetter, Affordable Chic

Southern Belle Decorative Paint - Barb's Brunette Do

“Barb’s Brunette Do is a beautiful espresso color all on its own, as an accent color or as a dry brush color when antiquing. It has beautiful depth.”

— Angie Vestal, owner/creator of  Southern Belle Decorative Paint

Pratt and Lambert - Tobacco

“Tobacco works as a great neutral. It has the depth and versatility to be paired with both warm and cool tones, such as bright citron or a cool sapphire blue.”
