Poor beige. It’s gotten a bad reputation (unearned!) in recent years. If you equate beige with boring, we have news for you: beige can be a beautiful hue with plenty of depth. Think of it as the ideal neutral—not too bright, not too dark, and with a versatile appeal that also plays well with all kinds of colors.
To help redeem beige’s name, we’ve rounded up 18 warm, neutral, minimal, and—yes—beige decor pieces that would be appealing additions to your home. Here’s betting you’ll think differently of beige from here on out.
Ruggable Jaque Checkered Stone Rug
No sad beige here. This classic checkerboard rug is nothing but fun no matter which hue you pair with the beige squares: green, black, or stone. It’s available in seven sizes, so it can function as a doormat, a large area rug, or plenty of purposes in between. This rug’s versatility makes it especially practical, since it’s water-resistant, stain-resistant, and (best of all!) machine-washable.
Sunday Citizen Faces Throw
Go ahead and get cozy with this oh-so-touchable throw blanket from Sunday Citizen. It’s double-sided, mostly beige on one side and mostly black faces on the other, which allows you to switch up the look with a simple flip of the throw. It’s made with two layers of a snuggly machine-washable! microfiber and is oversized too. That makes it great for sharing and cuddling up for movie night, but we wouldn’t blame you if you want this one all to yourself.
Pour Toi Home Circular Hollow Ceramic Vase
Any coffee table, desk, or shelf would instantly feel warmer when decorated with this pair of ceramic vases. Their bulbous, organic shapes can be filled with pampas grass, dried blooms, or nothing at all. However and wherever you style them, they’re sure to look pretty and appealing.
WKFSBLS Pampas Grass
A bundle of pampas grass is an easy, affordable way to introduce the warmth of beige into your decor. They’re maintenance-free too, needing no water and lasting for, well, ever. Our suggestion? Add a few of these pieces—this set comes with 80 total—to the ceramic vases above.
Levity Home The Scandinavian Lounge Chair
Beige decor pieces are great. If you’re ready to ramp up your love of the lovely neutral, beige furniture, some may argue, is even better. Take this lounge chair from Levity, for example. Its Scandinavian-inspired style is classic-as-can-be, especially in beige tones—though the cushions come in a variety of colors. No need to be too precious with it either; the cushion covers are stain-proof and machine-washable, so you don’t have to be worried about guests with glasses of red wine.
Cave Glow Studio Sand Beeswax Spirals
Everything looks better by candlelight, so nab a set of these beige-colored spiral candles, handmade in New York with pure beeswax, cotton wicks, and natural dye. Each measures nine inches tall and lasts approximately nine hours.
Open Spaces Entryway Rack
If your entryway currently consists of a mountain of shoes, it’s time to tackle that mess with easy organization. Enter this design from Open Spaces, a multi-use, three-tier rack made of steel. The beige version beautifully blends in, but if you prefer a pop of color, it’s sold in an array of hues.
Sonic Editions Namibia Print
There are countless ways to include warm beige into your decor, and that includes artwork. This print, a photograph of the Namibia desert captured by Andreas Leeman, would instantly add a conversation piece to your home. Like all Sonic Editions prints, it’s available in a variety of sizes, so you can choose the one that best fits your space.
Cold Picnic Cliffside Bathmat
A beige bathmat? Oh yes. This delightful design from Cold Picnic features their signature geometric shapes in shades of white, peach, and olive green on a neutral beige backdrop. It’s made from 100 percent organic cotton, features a non-slip backing, and is sure to make you smile every time you catch a glimpse of it.
McGee & Co. Rupert Leather Bin
Your magazines (or winter hats or whatever, really!) will have never looked better than when stored in this woven leather bin. Use it on your desk, a shelf, in your entryway, or next to your couch. Made of high-quality leather, you can be sure it’ll last a lifetime, well worth the price tag. It’s sturdy, sophisticated, and a goes-with-everything shade of beige that makes it all the more versatile.
Taste and Place: The Design Hotels Book
This Design Hotels book has it all. Not only can you thumb through stunning photographs of exotic locations, but you can take in expert commentary regarding the intersection of food, hospitality, travel, and the environment. It’s a thought-provoking and inspiring book, one that’s wrapped in a beautiful beige cover that begs you to open it while looking lovely on a coffee table.
Schoolhouse Everyday Tray
The key to organization: having a home for everything, no matter how small. That’s where this catchall tray from Schoolhouse comes in handy. The wheat color is timeless, and so is its minimal design. It comes in three sizes and three colors, so you can mix and match them in a variety of rooms, from housing desk supplies in your office to snacks in the kitchen.
Jungalow Hamsa Quilt Set
Never assume that beige bedding is boring ever again—not with this embroidered quilt set from Jungalow, at least. It features hand-drawn illustrations of hamsas, an ancient amulet symbolizing protection, luck, health, happiness, and good fortune, which will immediately bring good vibes to your bedroom. It’s cozy yet lightweight, perfect for warmer seasons and layering in the winter.
Brooklinen Aquarius Cup
You can bring beige into your home decor in both bold and subtle ways. To start small, add this stoneware cup, which is hand-made in Brooklyn, to your Brooklinen cart. Whether you use it to drink from or to store your favorite pens, it would be an elegant addition to any space. A small piece of decor like this could be the start of a beautiful relationship with beige.
The Inside Waterfall Ottoman
Everyone needs somewhere to kick their feet up, and there’s nowhere better than this rounded ottoman from The Inside. It’s durable—both kid and pet friendly—and multi-purpose, serving as a footstool, side table, or an extra seat for guests. While it’s available in dozens of fabrics, a soothing beige tone would be an especially timeless addition to your living room.
Grand and Lovely Prints Set of Henri Matisse Prints
We could never tire of these classic Matisse prints, especially in a subtle beige tone. Head to Etsy to purchase these iconic designs as digital downloads. That way you can print and then frame them in whatever size works best for your space.
H&M Cotton Cushion Cove
There’s no better, easier, or less expensive way to dip your toe into any design trend than with a throw pillow. This cute cotton cushion cover from H&M, with a tufted rainbow motif on the front and a smooth back, would be a pretty place to rest your head for a Netflix marathon. Keep in mind that this is just the cover, so you’ll need a plain pillow to fill it with.
Minka Textured Pot
Whoever said beige couldn’t be interesting? They clearly haven’t seen this hand-painted cement vessel, decorated with textured baubles. Fill it with a potted plant (one you can take out to water, since this pot, while watertight, doesn’t have a drainage hole), an arrangement of dried flowers, or foraged branches, then bask in how beautiful it is. This design comes in a wide range of seven sizes, each of which would be a standout on its own or a truly stunning display when mixed and matched together.
