For some people beige equals boring but for those of us who love our neutrals, we know that beige is anything but boring. Beige comes in a huge range of different shades and the one thing they all have in common is warmth. There is something so cosy and welcoming about beige — any room painted in beige almost feels like being enveloped in a great big, warm hug! Beige also pairs beautifully with both black and white. Even the palest shade of beige can make white and black accents really stand out.
Beige, like most paint colours, comes in varying shades and often has undertones of different colours like grey, green, yellow etc. Choosing the right shade of beige for your home will come down to personal preference, the lighting in your home and the other colours you already have in the room. While beige walls can work in any room, I especially love beige for a living room. Thats the most used room in many homes so it makes sense to create a space that is cosy and cocooning and beige will help you do just that. Aesthetically, beige is very pleasing to the eye as it’s soothing and calm and can really take a neutral interior from drab to fab.
Even if you’re in the ‘beige is boring’ camp, you might change your mind after seeing these warm beige living rooms that are big on style and full of hygge.

First up is this cosy living room painted in a beige colour with peachy-pink undertones. The softness of this colour creates instant warmth. Also in this living room, they’ve added cushions in a darker beigey-peach shade which makes the wall colour stand out more — a great trick to accentuate any wall colour. Even though it’s a fairly light shade of beige, the white ceiling and other white accents really pop. If you like this wall colour, here’s a very similar beige paint colour.
This living room is painted in a very light shade of beige. Despite being so light, the white and black decor really stands out against the beige as do all the dark wood accents. What’s more, even with a pale shade of beige, there is plenty of warmth in this room. A pale beige like this is ideal for you if you want a subtle hint of colour, especially if you have a lot of white and black in the mix. Here’s where you can find a similar shade of beige if you’re drawn to this colour.
This warm beige living room is painted in a darker shade of beige. It’s been decorated with lots of white and black accents as well as touches of brown. Much like the other rooms, there is plenty of warmth here — no matter what shade of beige you choose, you will create a warm and cosy space. I love the touches of brown in this room which works so well with the beige walls. And the dark beige contrasts the white ceiling moulding beautifully, making it stand out and shine as a feature in this room. Here’s a similar shade of paint.
While grey will always be a popular neutral, it can feel cold in some spaces. Instead you have greige — a beigey-grey like in this living room above. It’s essentially beige with strong grey undertones and has a lot more warmth than a pure grey paint colour. In the living room above, they’ve opted for a light greige but you can get darker greiges too; it just depends on what you like. Like almost all beiges, this colour works really well with black and white as well as warmer beige and cooler grey tones too. Also the olive green kitchen cabinets work really well with greige walls. If you can’t choose between grey and beige, then greige is the perfect wall colour for you. Here’s where you can find a similar greige paint.
This is the darkest beige on this list and as you can see it has subtle green and grey undertones. The colour is really soothing, creating a warm and cosy living and dining space. In this room they’ve combined beige with grey which is always a great combo — beige goes with practically any neutral tone which is another reason why it works so well. Once again you have plenty of black and white accents in this living space. If you prefer a darker tone, here’s where you can find a similar shade of beige.
Here’s all the shades of beige similar to the rooms pictured above — when you look at them together, you really see how varied beige can be. And these are just a few shades I’ve picked out, but there’s so many more variations of this colour. I’ve added a sixth colour which is a lovely shade of beige with a strong pink undertone. As with any paint colour, test it in your home before you buy it because paints can look very different depending on your lighting and also what else you have in the room.
