While we love our bright colors here in the Southwest, there’s just something cozy and inviting about a warm neutral tone. Here are some of our favorite ways to really make your browns pop.
Get the best of all worlds. With subtle shades of several browns this Karndean flooring from Mesilla Valley Design Center mimics the look of both stone tiles and wood. 909 W. Amador Ave | mvdesigncenter.com
Nothing gives that authentic Mexican-style touch like Talavera tiles. If the bold blues and greens are too much for your space, look for a rich brown background or muted orangey base at Casa Mexicana Tile. 5603 S. Main St. | casamexicana.com
The gold tones and embossed iron front make the Hilario 2-door cabinet from Pier 1 Imports a stylish statement piece. For a smaller accent piece, top your table with this Gabrielle 3-tier server. 3020 E. Lohman Ave | pier1.com
