in defense of beige


Am I the only one who feels like beige gets an undue bad rap? It seems so many bloggers proclaim their hatred of the color. And for a while, I somewhat agreed. Beige can be boring, too safe and I've seen it in just one too many spec homes.

BUT, recently I have changed my tune. When done well, I really love this sometimes frowned upon color! Beige is pretty much just like every decorating element out there- it can be bad or it can be good. Let me present my case:
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10

Sold yet? Here are some beige shades I think are great:

(all are Benjamin Moore)

I'm up for discussion- do you all agree with me or shall we just agree to disagree? In other news- I'm sure happy its Friday. Hope you all have a great weekend!
