The feeling that beige captures so well is one of comfort and security that we all yearn for within our homes. Emphasise that feeling by adding some wooden pieces to your neutral living room. A relaxing atmosphere by the fireplace calls for a color palette that knows how to channel tranquility. You could hardly find a better choice than beige. There are plenty of beige hues to play with, from soft cream to dark sand. You can easily layer them within one room and awaken the traditional ambiance. Use the brightest hues of beige to capitalize on the room’s incredible lightness, but balance the scale by framing some wall art in black frames.
