The Neutral Color HGTV's David Bromstad Loves To Break Beige Habits
Beige creates a pleasing backdrop within several types of interior styles, but if you’re in need of a revival, HGTV’s David Bromstad says this color might evoke the perfect vibe.
"To break free from your beige prison, I suggest making a big move: paint walls a mid-tone gray," he told HGTV. "It's a soothing color that will make the space feel sophisticated."
Gray walls can exude a different kind of elegance alongside cool colors like teal, navy, and purple, whereas beige typically matches warmer colors like red, yellow, and orange.
While you might consider various shades to distinguish various sections of your home, Bromstad thinks gray is a captivating wall color that can be congruous throughout.
A dark charcoal gray can be used to add drama, while a faint gray is light and airy. However, sticking with a mid-hue may offer the best balance, contrast, and finesse.
Once you've set the tone with the right color, Bromstad suggests bringing in alluring shades of plums and blues by way of furniture and accessories to add comparison.
