If you are a fan of sober decoration, you can avoid the “hospital” spirit of white by using beige.
Less cold than white and softer than gray, restful, relaxing and luminous, beige is a color particularly used in the field of decoration and which has been talked about again for some time.
This shade comes originally from the natural color of wool and has many shades ranging from “false whites” to light browns. It also allows to bring relief to a room by creating a contrast, subtle or pronounced between the walls, the woodwork or the moldings.
There are many variations of this color, often with colorful names such as Sand Beige, Clay Beige, Straw Beige or Eggshell Beige.
With which colors to associate beige ?
Just like white, beige matches all colors : pastel shades and bright colors ! Beige can soften certain colors such as red-brown, Klein blue or Radiant Orchid purple. Among these colors, the color most often used with beige is brown which is the opposite in terms of brightness.
Once associated with one or more colors, beige still remains bright and refined.
