Beige Paint Color Code #1: "SW 6106 Kilim Beige"

Beige paint colors are popular for many reasons, including their neutrality and flexibility.

Beige walls will serve as a backdrop, rather than focal point, allowing you to show off architectural features such as window and wall trim, interior columns, stone fireplaces, and ceiling details.

A neutral beige paint highlights the natural tones throughout the hand-stained wood, stone archway, stone fireplace, and tile flooring in this Raleigh new home living room.

SW 7036 Accessible Beige

This living room - picture from a version of the Coquery Cottage - is painted in SW 7036 Accessible Beige by Sherwin Williams.

Beige Paint Color Code #3: "SW 7527 Nantucket Dune"

Beige tends to work equally well in large, vaulted and small, open great room layouts. In this living room, a beige wall paint accentuates the black fireplace surround, dark light fixtures, and medium wood hardwood floors.

The craftsman trim - painted white - adds to the texture of the room.

Beige Paint Color Code #4: "SW 7714 Oak Barrel"

Livnig room finishes and features should work together with your paint selection.

For confidence when choosing a paint color, you may want to apply large samples, on-site, to meld your colors with other features within the room, especially when integrating custom wood design work, like this "boat" style hardwood ceiling.   Many suppliers will sell "sample size" cans of paint for just this purpose.

The beige paint color helps draw in the hardwood ceiling stain for a soothing, vacation style home design.

Beige Paint Color Code #5: "SW 7687 August Moon"

Bright white, glossy trim and wainscoting panels are a great design technique to break up any paint color, including a strong beige.

A lighter beige paint keeps these open concept rooms feeling light and airy.
