67 Timeless Taupe Color Home Décor Ideas
It’s winter now and everything around us is pale-colored, or maybe even snowy-white. If you want to infuse your home with some neutrals but still want something different from the pales outside, why not try taupe décor? It’s a timeless and practical choice thanks to its versatility.
What Is Taupe Color
Taupe is otherwise known as beige-brown, is a color in-between brown and gray, I would even say: a range of colors, there are darker and lighter shades to choose from, everything depends on your needs and desire. Despite being hard to define, it’s a perfect neutral color to make any interior cozy and chic.
Colors That Go With Taupe
Taupe mixes well with soft pastels, including pink, yellow and even olive shades. It’s essentially a warm color but thanks to its versatility you can pair it with a cool color palette too. Mix it with sky-blues, pale lavenader or gentle violet shades. You can also go with pure whites if you like Scandinavian-inspired interiors or try it with bright mango and even reds if you aim for a bold look.
Taupe In Bedroom Décor
Taupe is very popular for bedrooms because what can be more peaceful than a taupe-colored bedroom? Crispy white is too much, pastels are girlish, so taupe is a universal decision in such a case. Taupe furniture, bedding, rugs and curtains will easily make your bedroom inviting and soothing, and what else do we need after a long day? Taupe looks great with any neutrals, especially grey as this is a part of it, and of course with white, chestnut or black. Taupe is a very refined choice, whatever items you choose, and if you don’t want any great changes in your bedroom, taupe bedding and pillows are right what you need for a cool and soothing look.
