Beige decor paints a mellow mood that helps unwind the mind. This light neutral carries a soothing warmth that makes a modern home interior appear welcoming and homely. In the two modern beige home designs that we feature here, we look at how to add chic style and interest to this calming color palette. We’ll take inspiration from two moderately proportioned open-plan living spaces that combine peaceful beige decor schemes with edgy black accents. Peaceful bedroom designs come with a sprinkling of design ideas that add a touch of panache, and beige bathrooms are fashioned into tranquil sanctuaries. You’ll also find a pastel pink and beige combo in a cute kids’ room and a unique contemporary bathroom.
