Is beige a plain and boring colour? It tends to be a colour that always ends up far from the spotlight. Many people think that beige when used in decor is boring and restrictive. I must admit that I’m not totally sold on rooms that use only beige decor. However I think that you can combine beige with other nuances of white. Add an accent colour and voila…looks great :)

What do you think?? Is beige right or boring ala open office landscape on a rainy Monday? :)

    “Boring” colors seem to be a must nowadays. Which is understandable as people are becoming more amd more creative and those “boring” colors make a wonderful white canvas for it.
    Gray is another color that stepped out from that definition to enter the “MUST” definition.
    Love your pictures choise. Soothing, romantic, lovely – just what the doctor ordered ;)
    Thank you!!!

    I love beige. I avoid pure white (and black), so cream and beige are like ‘anchors’ for my colour palette. They look best with navy blue. :)

    I agree I think it is great in a room as a background colour but you need to add strong colours in your curtains or cushions.
    Similarly I think I like a beige bag or scarf with a outfit but not from head to toe

    Maria, I love Beige. It is very calming. I also love that beige Celine bag in your post here. I love the combination of beige with black, brown, blue and red.

    Thanks for following me on Google+. Your photos on Instagram about the South of France and Amsterdam are amazing! Have a good day!

    I don’t think beige is boring at all. Always a great neutral to implement in design. Great inspiration. -xo/Mads

    I love that i ran across this post! I love the images you used and the mention of it’s feel in feng shui. I adore beige, and for whatever reason, i didn’t imagine anybody hating it/thinking it’s boring. I recently ran a color psychology questionnaire on my blog and was taken by surprise when nearly every answer stated it was disliked and uninteresting. I mean…i do understand!…but still. I think it’s beautiful!

    What i love about beige: It’s reminiscent, gentle, humble, care-free, and immaterial. It remembers the beauty of the past and exalts the inner-self over the outer-self. It doesn’t try too hard.
