10 beautiful beige home decor accessories

By: Cindy Jacobelli
There was a time when beige was belittled for being boring but these days, it's back to being beautiful. Less stark than white, it’s a versatile shade. It provides a warm contrast to dark decor. And used as the main colour palette in a room, creates a fresh, airy space. Thanks to today’s imaginative designers, beige is no longer flat and uninspiring. From jacquards to stripes to textures, there are plenty of ways beige can be captivating. So forget what you think you know about beige and embrace this colour for your home. You’ll be surprised how appealing it is when you start exploring the possibilities!

1 Suede pillow covers
There’s nothing like the feel of soft, supple suede. Besides being warm and cozy, these covers look great thanks to the different textures… from smooth and simple to wonderful weaves. Restoration Hardware, $39.99. beige-tablerunner.jpg
2 Jacquard table runner
Make your dinner party extra special. An intricate weave gives this table runner infinite sophistication. A soft cotton/linen blend, it’s as rich to the touch as it is to the eye. Williams-Sonoma, $117.53. beige-tablelamp.jpg
3 Tatum table lamp

They call the colour of this base ‘butter opal.’ It sounds as warm and delicious as it looks. It’s got an earthiness that’s ideal for a living room or bedroom. Crate & Barrel, $247.81. beige-duvet-sham.jpg
4 Duvet cover & sham

It’s a delicate shade, but even beige can make for a bold stripe. It keeps things fresh and airy, but is still soothing to the senses. Pottery Barn, $51.11 - $195.28. beige-shagrug2.jpg
5 Shag rug

Shag is just fun. In this case, it provides a wonderful contrast, a little texture and a touch of whimsy to an otherwise dark bedroom. CB2, $449 - $799. beige-wallmirror.jpg
6 Parsons wall mirror

The classic Parsons mirror is simple and spare. In a modern twist, the natural grass finish gives textural appeal and takes beige from boring to daring. West Elm, $259.42. beige-napoleanic-chair.jpg
7 Napoleonic chair

What makes this chair interesting is the contrast between soft, refined colouring on the front and a rough, dark deconstructed look on the back. It’s a design that’s equally comfortable in a light-filled living room or a rich, dark den. Restoration Hardware, $1,095. beige-photoprint2.jpg
8 Photo prints

A print like this shows off the great attributes of beige. It reflects light. Its shades provide texture – both soft and sharp. And it just makes you feel good. While this photo is perfect for a modern family cottage, think about hanging it in well-travelled parts of your home – perhaps to create a welcoming entryway or in an upstairs hallway. Amanda Rae K on Etsy, 30USD. beige-stool2.jpg
9 Graphic stool

Everyone may be talking about decorating with grey – but beige comes in just as many shades. This stool pairs the best of the two together for a striking modern piece. West Elm, $311.51. beige-showercurtain.jpg
10 Linen shower curtain

Give your beautiful bathroom a natural feel with this rustic linen shower curtain. The neutral shade marries well with a modern stripe for sophisticated style. Coyuchi, $214.
