If you add a few accents to the calm neutral interior in the form of brown-blue interior covers, blue and brown decorative pillows and cream curtains, then this design will sparkle with completely new colors. In the presented photos it is clear that the beige finish harmoniously combines with brown, as well as other contrasting colors that are present in the interior elements.

Beige wallpaper for living rooms with different illumination
Looking at the photos of finished living rooms, it can be noted that for poorly lit rooms the emphasis is not on light furniture, but on the neutral finish of the main surfaces. Bright colors and flooring will contribute to a pleasant color perception of the room, which in tandem will create an illusion of spaciousness. For rooms with low light is not recommended to use textured wallpaper, as well as wallpaper with a large contrast print. It is necessary to give preference to monophonic wallpapers having a smooth texture.
The walls of the spacious and bright living rooms, made in beige color, can be decorated with the help of monochrome textured wallpaper, which will give the interior depth and significance. You can dilute the monochrome finish with:
- bright inserts;
- panels of wallpaper scraps;
- wall or ceiling frescoes;
- 3D wallpapers.

Choice of furniture
When choosing furniture should be guided not only by its appearance. But also functional purpose. The key place in the living room is assigned to the sofa, since with its help the main zone of the room is formed - the rest area. Living room in beige tones requires a special approach to the choice of furniture. The color of the sofa, chairs and other interior items should be in harmony with the decoration of the main surfaces, not clutter up the room and emphasize its thematic focus. Preference is given to brown tones that are in harmony with neutral beige color.
For decoration of the recreation area, you can choose a brown sofa or a couch. If the living room is combined with the bedroom, then the sofa should be easily transformed into a bed.
Tip: It is possible to dilute the solid color of the sofa upholstery with the help of interior covers and decorative pillows, made in bright contrasting colors.
A neutral upholstery combines well with such upholstery as genuine leather, so a white or brown sofa will attract attention and become the key piece of the living room interior, decorated in beige color.
Depending on the area and height of the ceiling in the living room, you can arrange both centralized and spot lighting. LED backlight mounted around the floor perimeter looks original. It is mandatory to allocate a recreation area, you can do this by installing wall or floor lamps near the sofa.
