Design Trend: Beige is Back
One of the most chic shades in fashion this year is camel. And it seems the interior design world has also fallen in love with this muted, sophisticated colour and its tonal sisters - sand, taupe, light tan and beige. Yes, folks, Beige is Back. And beige doesn't have to be boring! We look at some inspiring interiors that embrace this elegant shade...
This home in Denmark is a gorgeous example of how babe'n beige can be. Pair this colour with plenty of crisp white (we love the painted floorboards!) to keep the overall scheme contemporary and clean.
One of our modern beanbag chairs, in taupe, would be right at home in that bedroom, in the sun-lit corner.
Beige is undoubtedly a sophisticated shade, and brings an upscale feel to any space. Here, they've kept the look from being too formal, by displaying loved books and decor items, along with plants and casual cushions.
Beige and similar neutrals work year-round. They have a 'coastal cool' look (think: driftwood and golden sand) that's perfect for summer, but still feel warm and cozy for colder months.
One of our taupe beanbag ottomans would be gorgeous here.
Beige is a beautifully calming shade for a baby nursery. Layer it up with soft blankets and accents in similar soft neutrals - we love the light nude and mushroom shades they've used in this sweet little space.
One of our taupe designer beanbag chairs would make a perfect nursing chair here.
Ok, so most of the 'beige' colour here is actually natural timber, but we wanted to show you how sexy beige looks with lots of bold black. Super luxe, super modern.
This superbly-styled scene is one of many in brand new interior design book My Residence. Celebrated stylist Josefin Hååg shows how a modern beige look is done. Using beige as a base, Josefin has layered warm textures, natural light timber and punches of black to striking effect.
