Chocolate Brown Curtains: The New Curtain Styles

Updated on June 5, 2010

Not since the beginning of the 1970s have the dark earth tones been back in style, as the choices for kitchen appliance back then were avocado or dark brown. Today stainless is the in color for the kitchen area, but curtain styles are pointing toward the older dark themed colors. Chocolate brown curtains has made a strong thrust upon the interior design world in recent months, and made a huge impact on the décor of current homeowners. Mixing this dark earth tone with pink curtains, or blue drapery will make a significant impact on your overall décor, and keep a warming and welcomed appeal for people who are present in the room.

Brown Kitchen Curtains

If you have earth tones mingling with your travertine tiling, beige or sand colored wall paint, and natural wood cabinetry then milk chocolate brown curtains will be a great option for your kitchen window treatments. Try to select a couple more colors from the granite countertops to blend with your window curtain color scheme. This can be included in the valance, or part of the print on the curtain fabric, or with the tiebacks, you will install. Install double curtain rods with eyelet style drapery so you can install sheer curtain panels near the window. This will allow almost full light during the day while the brown curtains are pulled back.

Brown Shower Curtains

Dark brown shower curtains with a pink printed pattern to blend with your other bathroom accents like area rugs, and bathroom curtains will help tie together a pleasurable decor that will be pleasing to the eye and give the person bathing or showering a calm retreat feeling while relaxing in your soaker bathtub. Adding brown, pink and blue candles to use while relaxing during your bath will not only create a soothing quiet feeling, but will blend well with the overall theme of your spa like bathroom.

Brown Velvet Curtains

Adding an opulent look and feel to your living area can be accomplished by using thermal backed curtains with a brown velvet, micro fiber, or velour curtain fabric. Using gold or muted satin yellow tiebacks will add to the already luxurious look of your window treatments. To complete the window covering treatment, add a matching valance to give a more customized or professionally designed appearance. The thermal backing will not only help keep your room cool in the summer and warm in the winter, but block out day light to watch a DVD during the day, or have complete privacy from nosey neighbors in the evening.
