So Where Does Beige Belong?

… in a hospital right next to the band-aids. Seriously though, am I the only one who thinks about band-aids every time I see beige? I don’t think so because I’m hearing this from my clients too.

“Can you PLEASE take the beige out of my home and replace it with some color?”

…sure!

Beige is great for yarn if you’re going to knit a blanket. It will go with any decor.

Does beige belong in fashion?

I guess if you like this very neutral look.

I wonder if this says something about her personality?

Does beige belong in decor?

It can. It will certainly blend in with any wall color you choose IF you choose a wall color.

Does beige belong in the bedroom? Not in mine!

Why would you choose beige for your home when there are so many beautiful colors to choose from? Are you afraid of color and just want to pick something safe? Do you not want to go through the trouble and actually have to coordinate the rest of your home? I bet you have a white kitchen too.

Color is coming in hot and heavy for 2014. Don’t be afraid to use color on your walls! I understand if you want to keep it neutral and soft but look that these colors that will do the same.

You can have these lovely hues in your home and they will all go with beige, see the last three colors on the bottom? Just don’t make beige the main color of your home. Start painting your walls some of these very popular colors and I can guarantee that you’ll be happy with the results.

    I have to add this comment! I don’t know why I didn’t remember this from before, but yet another reason I’m trying to eliminate or at the very least, reduce the beige in my home is that although it isn’t exactly bandaid beige–it’s “Butt Paste” beige! Anyone out there familiar with Butt Paste? It’s a diaper-rash salve that most modern moms use. When my then 3 year old daughter one day said randomly, “Mommy our walls are the color of Butt Paste” I knew I had to change them!!

    Any color that reminds one of the butt can’t be good either! Just like some golds are referred to as “baby poop gold”
