Beige: that neutral color that all landlords seem to think their tenants will love. It sometimes gets a bad rap, but luckily, it doesn't have to be boring. Whether the walls in your rental are tan, beige or cream, taupe, buff, or ecru, there's a way to make it work for you and your little ones. Here are a few of our favorites from the archives along with the reasons why they work:

1. In Holly’s DIY Delight (above) a combination of wall decals, unique vintage furniture, and fun/colorful accessories make her beige room anything but boring.

2.. Even if your little one's room is a sea of beige - floors, walls and ceiling, you can instantly punch it up with a colorful piece of upholstered furniture like this bright red beauty from Linus’ Cozy & Traditional Bedroom.

3. The walls in Violet's room are cream-colored, but some homemade artwork and colorful bedding instantly add life and color.

4. Accenting a wall with removable graphic decals like these triangles in McKenzie's Modern Traditional Mix help to make this very neutral room anything but dull.

5. Add a punchy patterned rug and homemade patterned fabric bunting to bring a bedroom to life like in Emily's nursery.
