What’s your first reaction when you hear the word ‘beige’? We bet it’s ‘BORING’ in big bold letters. Now, what would be your reaction if someone suggested that you do your home interior design in beige. You’d probably brush off the suggestion as cuckoos. But the thing is: beige colour is very elegant and sophisticated. To prove that it can totally make your spaces chic, we’ll be featuring 5 home inspirations with ideas and tips. Let’s take a look:
1. A plethora of shades
The best way to use beige in your home interiors is by spreading out your spectrum. There are many shades of beige – including champagne, tan, and more. You can create a lot of visual diversity by using a lot of them in the space. This living room is a prime example of the upscale vibe you can achieve by designing your spaces with various shades of beige instead of just the one.
2. Adding shapely contrast
The assumption that beige colour can be boring is only correct when you don’t have any kind of contrast in it. The most innovative way to add contrast in beige themed spaces is by introducing a lot of shapes. They don’t have to be especially bold – a cluster of simple shapes is just as good. The vertical mullions in the partition wall in this image are a prime example of how simple shapes can bring in great contrast.
3. Blending with the whites
If there’s one colour that you can complement your beige surroundings with, it’s white. It’s stark, light, and is the only hue with a light enough presence to highlight the beige accents. You’ll have to be careful about balancing the amounts of white you choose to pair with the beige, though.
4. Creamy patterns for the win
A great way to bring out the best of your beige colour scheme is by introducing it in a pattern format. But what format can you actually bring the patterns in? Well, they can be in the form of chair upholsteries, wallpapers, and even bed covers. The bedroom in this image features a classy beige patterned coverlet that adds a distinct grace to the overall space.
5. Gold lighting for enhancement
At the end of the day, your beige coloured interior designs can only look beautiful with the right lighting. So, what kind of lighting can you go for? Gold, obviously! The gorgeous incandesce of gold lighting can make the beige coloured objects in your spaces look positively charming!
