Beige Has A Bad Rep

Beige Has A Bad Rep

Of all the colors we know, beige is the one with an image problem. It's not pristine and crisp like white, not dark and dramatic like black, and not bright and bold like all the other colors. But is that the end of the story?

Is it boring and bland or a great warm neutral? Check out this nursery bathed in a creamy beige (called Latte from the Restoration Hardware paint line). For a little added interest, the parents painted one feature wall with stripes in a lighter shade of the same color in a semi gloss. The overall effect is soft and warm. For a full tour of the rest of this home, head over to Design*Sponge.

So what do you think about beige? Is it misunderstood or does it deserve its bad rep?
