Default sponging: which color goes on first?

im going to be sponging a hallway a lite brown. im curious which way is better?
lay down a white then sponge brown?
or, lay down brown and sponge white?
which way would you do it and why?
im not looking for a severe coverage of brown.

I would do 2 samples on 2 seperate sample sheets or poster board. That will tell you which one you like the best.
