Beige is one of the more popular interior design colors, especially for walls.
The reason is it’s a neutral color and works well with other colors you use such as earth tones, wood tones and even some bright colors used with decoration.

Beige Living Room Data
Here are a couple of interesting facts:
- 8.58% of living rooms are reported as being “beige” (based on analysis of 762476 living rooms).
- 32.19% of living rooms have beige walls (based on 296,379 living rooms).
Why the difference?
I don’t know for certain, but I suspect the difference is due to the relativity. What I mean is that rooms with some bright colors such as red pillows or yellow wood trim are reported as red or yellow because of the prominence of those colors even though they actually are a small percentage of the overall color scheme.
Whereas when it comes to living room wall color, that’s not subjective; it’s fact.
Therefore, the better data set, and I think it’s far more accurate, is that beige is one of the most popular living room colors.
What does beige mean?
