I was thrilled to be interviewed by Marisa Donnelly of The Spruce about gray disappearing and beige, yes beige, making a comeback.
I must admit, I was horrified at first, I love my clean, fresh colours, but I'm warming up to it. It does invoke a sense of comfort and coziness.
Here's a few tips to ensure you use beige correctly. No blah beige here!
Remember to use beige in tones from dark to light. Perhaps a soft cream on the walls, mid toned beige rug as shown above here and pair it with a cognac leather toned couch.
If you prefer a fabric sofa, this one below looks nice and neutral. Just remember that beige has all sorts of undertones :
That's the tricky thing, we need to ensure that your beige sofa has the same undertone as any other beige in the room. Your designer will help you with that!
Another option is to pair beige with stronger colours like navy, green even black to create a real pop.
Ensure you have texture, these pillows & throw blanket amp up the coziness and ensure your room doesn't look flat or blah. That's not what we want!
Thinking of embracing beige, but unsure how to proceed, just let me know, I'd love to help!
