New Furniture: Warm Tones and Flower Power

The decor of early twentieth-century bungalows featured warm tones, colors related to the earth and nature, e.g., reds, browns, yellows, taupes, greens. One will find the same colors in the massive amount of natural woodwork, red brick, stucco, and stone throughout bungalows. The Sherwin Williams historical paint colors below serve as good examples.

In keeping with the color scheme, we purchased a couch and two new chairs. The sofa is nearly the same color as our old sectional (goldish/khaki), but the material looks and feels older, if that makes sense. The armless chairs will sit at either end of a rectangular brown storage ottoman. If “warm tones” are key, then we should be fine with these chairs, which scream warmth (and flower power, I suppose).
