Beige is a calm and soothing decor colour, However, without added detail, it can appear flat and unimaginative. Its peaceful qualities become mundane, resting in limbo somewhere between serene and stale. To stop you from falling into the flat-trap, we’ve brought together 40 inspirational beige living rooms that spark real visual interest.
Bring in blue accents. This living room design scheme delves into a blue accent theme with the largest furniture pieces of the room. However, you can do this much more subtly with elements that can be easily changed out, such as a rug, artwork, and drapes.
Create a strong focal point. This textural living room wall decor gives the eye a place to focus within the light and floaty decor scheme. Panel moulding smartly frames the display.
Fashion a neoclassical living room aesthetic with decorative boiserie and deep crown moulding.
Make it all about the artwork. Whether your artwork introduces a hint of muted colour or sticks with a monochrome theme, make it large and in charge.
Open plan archways form elegant vignettes by creating a graceful frame around the view of each living zone.
Another living room with architectural arches, this time with a strong, rustic appeal.
In this beige rustic living room, curves are replaced by striking wooden ceiling beams.
Focus on a feature fireplace. This beautiful example is flanked on either side by colour-coordinated pottery.
This feature fireplace communicates a more modern vibe with an extruded geometric design in the stucco.
Get into the minimalist mindset. A wall of recessed shelving, sunken into the stucco, achieves a smooth, fuss-free aesthetic.
Soften silhouettes in the room by selecting a deeply tufted sofa design and rounded motifs.
Add interest with wallcoverings. Beige walls don’t have to be blank. Select a modern wallcovering to bring in a touch of the unexpected.
Cluster large light fittings. Why settle for just one when you can have several?
Smooth out the perimeter. Conceal clutter behind closed doors and blend drapes with the backdrop for a pristine approach.
Introduce succinct modern touches, like this colourful artwork, floor lamp, and unique coffee table.
Create a light-filled courtyard to welcome in an uplifting natural vibe.
Roll out a rounded theme with a curvy sofa, a round rug, and shapely light fixtures.
A beige decor scheme will never look bland with textured wall panels.
Assemble a boho blend. Think natural materials, and live-edge silhouettes.
Drop in dark anchor points. This leather sofa, nesting coffee tables, bookcase, and designer table lamp completely transform the vibe of a beige room.
Turn up the luxe with marble wall panels, gold accents, and a show stopping living room chandelier.
Oversized accent pieces install an undeniable wow factor.
A triangle of colour. If you’re not sure how best to introduce a splash of colour, apply your accent hue in a triangular formation for a well-spaced 3-point application.
Establish a shapely theme. In this beige lounge, a curvy sofa design echoes an equally curvaceous fireplace and storage wall.
Expand vertical proportions. Double-height living rooms will always impress.
Be brave with extraordinary accents, like this eye-catching zebra-print chair, and marble elements.
Play with pattern. One of the safest ways to introduce pattern is in your living room rug. If you get tired of the look, it’s quick to change out.
Make a cosy frame with a U-shaped sofa arrangement, gathered around a simple living room rug.
A dash of the unexpected. Whether it’s a statement chair, coffee table, light-fitting, or all three, surprise your house guests with something extraordinary.
Crown your beige living room with a coffered ceiling to call attention to generous vertical proportions.
Arrange an abstract art wall with a 3D effect.
Give extra love to lighting with a concave ceiling feature. Expand upon the lighting scheme with moody perimeter lighting and a fabulous floor lamp.
Open up your living space with edge-to edge windows. Choose black window frames to darkly contrast the light beige decor palette.
Style intriguing backdrops. Convert an unimaginative doorway into a graceful archway. Highlight a tower of shelving with ribbons of LED light. Add depth with 3D relief art.
Transform tricky layouts with focussed areas of lighting. This interior makes a split ceiling height into a positive feature with a strip of bright LED light.
Don’t confine artistic touches to the walls. Paint a creative ceiling or fetch in an unusual rug.
