July is National Anti-Boredom Month – a month that celebrates all things bold and exciting. Basically all things that are not “beige.” But beige doesn’t have to be boring. If done correctly, beige can be an interesting color that serves as the perfect backdrop for the rest of your design.
Although beige is synonymous with “dull” in most instances, when it comes to color, beige helps keep things exciting. An accent wall of deep plum or fiery red would not be nearly as dramatic without anchoring neutral walls. And how would the pops of color offered by your accessories “pop” without an unassuming backdrop?
The purpose of neutrals is not always just to offset other colors. Mixing tones and textures of neutrals can create a fresh, clean look.
