Preppy Brown

I am in the midst of updating my master bathroom. it is relatively new bathroom and so we are just updating right now, instead of a toal rennovation. Removing more Hollywood lights, big flat mirrors and wallpaper with a border that I have lived with for almost 4 years. I am really getting out of my decorating comfort zone and painting the walls a chocolate brown. I always like neutrals, but don't have the first neutral wall in my house. So, this will be the first. I have two big gold mirrors that I am going to hang and need a great chocolate brown to paint the walls. Does anyone have a great chocolate brown paint they would like to recommend? I appreciate your suggestions.

I painted my bedroom chocolate brown earlier this year. I posted pics on Jan. 13. I think we used Olympic paint Chestnut. I LOVE IT!!! Can't wait to see how things turn out!

Serena and Lily has a GREAT chocolate brown paint offered in their catalog. Also, my stepmom did the bottom half of her dining room in a chocolate that is fabulous. The best chocolate I've ever seen. I'll get the name for you. It's a Benjamin Moore, I think.

Try middlebury brown HC-68 and if its too dark and you dont have any natural light try a few shades lighter and go with whitall brown HC-69 both by Banjamin Moore- Looks great with some brown and white transferware accessories- I painted my dining room the first color and love it-

I really love restoration hardware paint! So easy to put on the walls and looks amazing!

We are also redoing our master bath. Lots of dust and we have to use our daughter's bathroom, but I am so excited about having a nice new look!

I hope you post pictures. I love Benjamin Moore paints btw.

I used Ben Moore Middlebury HC-68. Saw this color in Southern Accents a few years back with Brown Transferware Plates on the walls and a brown check sofa. My dream room! My room gets morning sun and has lots of white trim.
