Colour of the Month

Beige is dependable, conservative, and flexible. In the home it's neutral, calm, and relaxing.

When you think of beige, you might also think of boring and dull - a colour that is easy to overlook and although some view it as a bit plain we believe the simplicity of beige is the exact beauty of the colour. Beige demands tranquillity and an essence of calm to create a relaxation hue. Beige can transform a space into a safe haven, whilst connecting us to our health and well being, what's more, a beige background looks vibrant when paired with earth like tones, plants and nature and can be home to a multitude of layers and textures.

The 'basic nature' of beige is both soothing and cleansing which is very much needed in our hectic and busy everyday life. After a long and tiring day at work, what better way to settle down and cosy up in your sanctuary of tranquillity, why not nestle into your Gubi Pacha Lounge chair, snuggled in your Ferm living throw while admiring your string shelving? Beautifully minimal and completely timeless, whether it's your morning coffee or evening glass of wine, let time escape you in your beige abode.

Beige is stunningly classic, and stripping your interior back is by no means taking away any value or aesthetic, in fact, in some ways, it opens up space and makes for a much cleaner, much fresher outlook. Defined as ''Natural" beige is a colour that truly connects us to purity, from sandy hues, oat, biscuit and camel tones; beige is home to a whole spectrum of colours

Unlike other neutral tones like grey, beige has an era of summer to it, making us feel safe and energised at the same time. It offers some of the warmth of brown and yellow and the coolness of ivory and white. What's more, beige allows what most colours and patterns do not - the freedom to layer texture, tones and shades, such as with our string shelving, there are no limits to what you can build and blend.

Checkout our Pinterest board demonstrating all the best neutral interior inspiration. From living rooms to kitchens, bedrooms to dining areas, beige is suitable for any room.



For some more neutral and tonal inspiration take a look at our favourite collections.

Matt and Holly's Tonal Bedroom 

UK based menswear, design & lifestyle blogger Matthew Spade and his wife Hollie are currently renovating their 1930's home in Lancashire. For the bedroom portion of the project they've opted for calming, neutral colour scheme complemented perfectly by the Menu JWDA Concrete Table Lamp.

You can see more photos of this beautiful room over on Mat's blog here

Neutral Tones 

Our digital content manager Shaun likes to keep things clean, minimal and with an edge towards the tonal. This corner of his apartment displays all of these along with a hint of organised clutter (when asked about the old poster tubes he said, "...because colour palette").

His favourite piece? That'd have to be the Vitra Eames LTR Side Table.

The Home Study
