Chocolate Brown is much more flattering to adjacent colors than deeper browns because it feels so much milder in tone. I also love to eat chocolate so the name draws me to this brown every time!

Auberge (Benjamin Moore 2106-20) is a rich brown that would make a beautiful, romantic and cozy master bedroom. Pair it with creamy white accents for a knockout look. Auberge also acts as a beautiful background for your artwork and accessories.

My favorite shade of Chocolate brown is Chocolate Truffle 2096-20 by Benjamin Moore. If you are considering using a Chocolate Brown, I say go for it because I like my browns to look rich! You can use a brown paint in a contemporary or traditional home. You can use browns with pink and turquoise accents or use bright white and neutrals for a sleeker look.

Our favorite chocolate brown is SW Black Bean! I once was inspired by Miles Redd and painted an entire room of bold stripes in this shade! It pairs beautifully with cream or Hermès orange.
