We’ve already gushed about how great taupe can be when used as a neutral. And now we’re getting a bit specific and showing you how to use it inside specific rooms in accordance with certain styles. Today, we’re staking the reigns and featuring 20 gorgeous, family-friendly living rooms that utilize taupe in ways that you may not have thought of or paid attention to before. Let’s dive in!
1. Ample Seating
Even if you want to add a bit of architectural accents or modern art pieces into the mix, make sure it’s still accessible to the family. Ample seating with natural light that hits the bright, taupe colors just right can really make a welcoming ethos come alive.
2. Texture Focus
When creating a living room with style and traditionalism, go with a neutral like taupe but then play up the interest with different textures and light patterns. Nothing will become too chaotic this way, instead it’ll be just the right amount of playful.
3. Go Dark
Darker tones mark traditional value when it comes to living room decor. So, if you want that same cozy feel you get at your parents house, go with a richer shade of taupe but keep it stylish with a creamy highlight and some modern accents.
4. Blue Sparks
A great color that relaxes and create a subtle charm when mixed with taupe is just the right shade of blue. It evokes a sense of ease but also adds the right kind of spark you need in a neutralized room.
5. Feminine Touches
Even the family room can use a bit of feminine touches. Pink curtains and golden pieces can be added to a taupe-dipped room to create a beautiful contrast and some subtle, girlish charm.
