Beige Sofa with brown accent can be warm and inviting !!

Beige Sofa with brown accent can be warm and invitingScared of color ? You'd rather play safe and boring than take the risk of coloring those walls... Right ? Here is a color scheme that uses the safest colors in the whole wide world. Brown and Beige and nothing else !! But does it look boring to you ? No, sweetie, Absolutely Not! In fact the living room looks so tastefully done and so elegant (click on the picture above to get a better view). When I designed this collage, I wanted to re-do my green and red living in this brown an beige color palette.

Are you wondering why this works ? Well, everything in room has been balanced. Light colored beige sofa has been balanced with dark chocolate-brown stunning durrie rug. Black framed paintings in beige have been added to the white colored wall. The throw pillows are in chocolate brown color, to balance the beige of the sofa.

Darlin's, if you want to do browns and beige then remember to balance light with dark. And if you don't want to color those walls , then Don't! But do not ignore them, deck them up with wall art and accessorize. Most of us tend to bust our budget on the ever so important "furniture". But when you are setting the budget for your living room, at least 20% - 30% budget should be kept aside for rug, wall art, lighting and decorative accessories.
