Chocolate is more than a delicious, sweet treat.

It’s a bold and luscious interior design choice.Chocolate1

Just like the chocolate we love to eat, the color chocolate used in interior décor is dark, luscious and rich.
Chocolate is a bold color that can be used in a similar way as black, but with more interest and a bit of softness. This beautiful color can communicate high-style or it can be very warm and inviting, depending how you use it.

  • Together with pastels, such as baby blue, light pink or butter yellowChocolate2
  • Layered with several lighter neutrals, such as cream, taupe, gray and beige
  • Paired with snowy white
  • Integrated with earth tones, like gold, apricot and sage green
  • Combined with bold colors, such as tangerine, acid green or tomato red

Like most dark colors, chocolate works best as an accent rather than as the predominant color in a room. And it’s important to surround large areas of chocolate with light colors to ensure a room doesn’t appear dark and closed.Consider these design elements for a touch of chocolate in your house:Chocolate3

  • A painted accent wall
  • Rugs and carpeting
  • Fabrics for upholstery, draperies and headboards
  • Table, bed and bath linens
  • Lacquer surfaces, such as table tops and furniture
  • Tile, backsplashes and countertops in kitchen and bath

Ready for an interior design color that reminds you of one of your favorite treats? Think chocolate for decorating this year.
