    she doesnt know what she's talking about

    browns and black are much more difficult to mix, but when done properly, have a very smart look to them

    I don't think its true, I think it can be a little heavy if you use too much of both colors, but I think it can work well if you have a light mixture of both then maybe a splash of color, like a red or royal blue maybe?

    Most people fail when they try it, but fuck fashion rules . I find black/brown look great together when you wear a prominent gold piece with it.

    But yes, it's commonly stated that brown and black shouldn't be worn together.

    I can see a painting or accent piece do well in this set up, but I think it has to be striking rather than dull in order to pull it off. A large, murano glass sculpture keeps coming to mind for some reason.

    EDIT:

    not this exactly, but you get the idea

    exactly what i was thinking...

    dark brown couches with black end/coffee tables + black frames on paintings would look just fine to me
