Whether it is a wall, a sofa, or a curtain, beige is that one color that can effortlessly blend with anything. And the best part is that you can easily add more colors to the room without the fear of it clashing with this neutral tone. Now, the question is, which colors go really well with beige? That is precisely what we are here to answer.
If you have a brand new beige sofa and are not sure how to decorate around it, this guide can give your mind a bit of a creative push.
Now, without further ado, let’s get right to it!
How to Decorate Around a Beige Sofa
What color scheme goes best with a beige sofa? One of the best things about a beige sofa is that it is a neutral shade. Not only can you decorate around it with almost any color scheme, but you can place it in any pre-decorated room as well.
The first thing to remember is this is a light color. So if you are looking to make the room look airy and bright, pair the sofa with other lighter hues such as off-white, cream, pink or blue. On the other hand, you can create a warm, moody vibe by using dark and contrasting colors.
What wall color goes with a beige sofa? The thing here would be to picture the aesthetic you wish to achieve. If you are looking to create a modern, minimalistic and elegant vibe, then colors like grey, off-white, shades of blue will be ideal. For something a tad bit edgier, darker shades of brown, black, and red might also look good.
What color area rug goes with a beige sofa? The area rug for the room is dependent on multiple factors such as the color of the wall, the floor, and furniture. When placing fully or partially under the sofa, then we suggest opting for a dark color. Colors like dark brown, maroon, black, dark blue will look great under a beige sofa.
Conversely, rugs in a light shade may also look good as long as they do not clash with the sofa. If the room demands a rug with a light shade, you can go with white or light blue. However, in this case, a rug with patterns looks best, so there is some level of contrast.
What color throw pillows go well with a beige sofa? As we mentioned before, a beige sofa is a neutral shade that can incorporate any other color.
One of the popular colors for throw pillows on a beige sofa is blue or dark shades of grey. Since the sofa is light, it can highlight the pillows well. Alternatively, if the sofa is large enough, you can add a mix of light and dark pillows depending on the color scheme of the room.
If the room has an overall light color theme, you can add a few big pillows in a dark shade along with smaller pillows in a light shade. This will add contrast to the room and create focal points to eliminate dullness.
What color curtains go well with a beige sofa? The color scheme for the curtains is highly dependent on where the sofa is and what the color of the wall is. The general rule of thumb is to pick a color that contrasts the wall or sofa (and, in some cases, both).
For example, if the curtains are being hung behind the sofa and the wall has a light shade of paint, we suggest going with something dark and contrasting. You can also add some light sheer curtains to make the room brighter.
On the other hand, if the room has dark walls and floors, it is always better to go with light or sheer curtains. You can place these curtains behind the sofa, but it will look much better on a window away from the sofa.
What color accent chairs go well with a beige sofa? The most common color option for accent chairs is brown or the ones made with wood. These blend in beautifully with the sofa and will allow you to add other colors without tampering with the look of the chairs.
Alternatively, you can add accent chairs in contrasting colors that match the walls. Colors like red, black and blue will look good provided the walls are light as well. Even accent chairs with patterns look good since beige sofas are usually plain. Adding a chair with a different pattern or texture can provide some depth to the room.
What color coffee tables go well with a beige sofa? We have come to realize that irrespective of the color of the room and furniture, a black or brown wooden coffee table looks good. It is one of those classic pieces that can effortlessly blend into any room and provide a great contrast to a simple beige sofa.
Alternatively, you can incorporate tables with glass countertops to make the room look brighter and more elegant. Many people also include coffee tables with marble or granite, which looks great and can be a statement furniture piece right in the middle of the room.
What color tv stands go well with a beige sofa? Not a lot of people have TV stands nowadays as most TVs are wall-mounted. However, if you need a TV stand, you can follow a similar style as the coffee table.
A wooden or dark-colored TV stand looks excellent, especially against light walls. If the stand is with the wall, painting it the same color as the wall and adding contrasting colors to some portions will look elegant.
With that, we finally come to the end of this guide on decorating around a beige sofa.
