Question: Please help me choose a color scheme for our bedroom. I like a soft room, and I really like beige. In fact, I'd like my room to be all beige. How does that sound to you?
Answer: I've decorated lots of rooms in beige over the years, and the most important rule here is to use many different tones and textures. When beige is used in one tone, a room can look very boring. I suggest giving a beige bedroom some interest.
For example, why not cover your bedroom walls in a soft beige damask? This will give some pattern to your setting. Next, hang beige raw silk drapery with fringe at your windows on brass poles.
On a beige carpet, place a sculptured beige border around the room. Then make sure your accessories--lamps, paintings, throw pillows--are colorful and inviting. A beige room can look great if you have all the interesting little extras.
