“Green and brown” may not sound like the most attractive combination, bringing to mind crayoned drawings of trees or the muddied grass outside. So try these instead: chocolate and apple, toffee and lime, emerald and bark, chestnut and celery, moss and citron, camel and mint.

Green and brown is a classic combination due to its natural earthiness and neutrality. It’s simultaneously fresh and calming, can be rich, bold, or light, and helps you channel the great outdoors.

With the right blend of tones, green and brown breathe crisp air into any room.
