25 of the Best Beige Paint Color Options for a Living Room

A collage of living rooms with beige paint.

Beige is a wildly popular color for living rooms because there are so many attractive shades and because it is so easy to match other colors and decorations with beige walls.

Unlike white, which can be too bright, beige can be stunning. If you are interested in color psychology, beige is one of the more calming and relaxing colors. The living room is the most likely room to seat visitors, though, or spend time with the whole family.

You want to have something you don’t mind showing off, but you also want the room to be comfortable enough so you want to spend time there. Beige walls are a great start.
