Beige has long been considered the nemesis of fun in the home sphere, with no more ability to bring life to a space than a teaspoon can. But in recent times it has been shaking off its ‘plain Jane’ vibes and introducing an exciting new aesthetic.
Warm and welcoming, beige is one of those clever colour chameleons that can make the perfect pairing with almost any other colour. And, when it comes to mixing and matching with this shade shifter, the bigger the design risks, the bigger the potential payoff.
Create a clean palette by incorporating white, go dark and moody with deep blues or charcoals, or go cool and classy by incorporating a range of beige tones, from light through to dark.
When it comes to colour psychology, pair beige with soft and relaxing tones of muted green, dove greys and soft pinks to create a calm and restorative environment.
Its earthy tones lend themselves to the use of organic materials, with indoor planting, woven artwork and ceramics making popular pairings. Spaces can be brought to life by adding texture through soft furnishings like wall hangings, sheepskins, wall rugs or furniture featuring organic materials.
This colour trend pairs well with woven artwork and indoor planting helps add a lush element to the neutral palette.
Bohemian decor can’t help but be a stand-out style in any room. Bohemian is too hip to be square; it’s a welcome digression away from the conversative; proudly eclectic. Whoever partners with this concept must appreciate an adventurous aesthetic.
A free-spirit, bohemian decor embraces culture, colour and carefree style – from compelling patterns and fiery orange, saturated purple, terracotta and metallic shades, to ornate boxes, mismatched china, vintage finds, and striking tapestries, every feature in your bohemian space should tell a story.
The best part about bohemian decor is that it can be done on a budget with repurposed and reclaimed items offering a cost-effective way forward. And when it comes to dressing your bedroom in this down-to-earth decor, it’s not hard to uncover some charming features and accents that will see you resting your head in boho heaven.
Rugs, curtains, duvets, lighting and accent pillows can all play their part in creating the ultimate boho style story. Trinkets like lanterns, antique candelabras, shabby chic throws and mystical artwork will add to the ambience.
Pinterest is a great place let your imagination run wild before you bring your ideas to fruition.
