Brown | A Study

Brown | A Study

850 850 Insightfloor

There’s always been a place for warm neutrals within the colour palette of a carpet tile collection; however, the use of ‘true’ brown is quite often limited, particularly in the UK. At burmatex, we have a wide variety of brown shades across multiple ranges, of which some are bolder than others. But why limit brown to small areas of use or play safe with a washed out warm-neutral? With the shift towards warmer neutrals and the increased use of brown in trend imagery, there’s been no better time to be bold with brown.

INSPIRATION

The following images are a photographic study of how different browns can be used together in different combinations and different quantities. These images are a photographic representation of how a designer may consider different product options at the start of a project, and how the scheme can be built layer by layer, with reference to trend imagery and the objects around us.

CARPET SCHEMES

A good way to consider the different colour use within a scheme is to look at the colours in sample sizes that are representative of the quantities that will be used within the scheme. This gives a more accurate representation of what the overall scheme would look and feel like. For example, if you are going to use 50% charcoal, 25% dark brown and 25% light brown, you could lay out a full sample tile of charcoal and two half sample tiles of dark brown and light brown. If you want to use a hint of an accent colour, place a small sample on top of the full and half tiles. It is also useful to place colours next to each other that will be next to each once installed.

FLOOR DESIGN

Once the colours have been chosen and the rough proportions of each have been established, the colours can then be planned into a floor design like the example below. In this design, three shades of the same range (balance) have been used for the majority of the office floor, but then a different product (cordiale) has been chosen to create a feature area under the meeting table. The use of a different product with a change of texture and bold appearance is a great way to create a focal point within a space and make use of such a solid bold colour.
