Taupe-tastic mood board
Who says beige is boring? I can't think of any other colour that has so much variety in shade or so many different names: taupe, biscuit, buff, fawn, ecru, oatmeal, sand and café au lait, to name just a few. I love all neutrals and natural shades and layering my home with a meld of neutral tones helps it to feel warm and inviting.
At home I have a taupe upholstered sofa, a beige rug, and neutral cushions and throws, and I love the way the colours complement the natural tones of my wooden furniture pieces. As a graphic designer, my artwork collection is really important to me, and with a neutral canvas to work with, I can easily change and update the artwork on my walls and inject some accent colours in the room with trinkets and treasures, without losing a sense of style and elegance.
At the top of my wishlist is a Sienna Dressing Table and Stool for my bedroom and I'd love to add a new Houston Trunk to my furniture collection.
