It’s funny just how using natural tones like beige and gray collectively can feel unnatural. Maybe it’s the thought that you shouldn’t ever pair neutrals together, or perhaps it feels odd using one cool ground tone along with a warm one. Whatever the hesitation, you may rest assured that beige and gray, tan or brown can coexist peacefully just as they do in nature. 1 trendy approach to utilize these colors together is by mixing textures and materials, and by incorporating fun bursts of color. Here are some examples:

Klang & Associates

Yes, it is possible to mix beige and gray paint colours, and beige and gray chairs. See both neutrals are tied by the artwork collectively? This chamber is a good example of colors in harmony.


Within this grey room, warmer earth tones are introduced in the wood floor and tan sofa. With such a neutral palette, pops of vibrant accent colours are a welcome sight. Here, a navy blue bit of art and turquoise accessories look very refreshing.

Glenvale Kitchens

The mild stained pine in this dining set is an ideal complement to light gray walls. The focus of this space, of course, is the radiant red cupboard. What a wonderful splash of color.

Brian Dittmar Design, Inc..

Gray, gold tan and white make a relaxed and serene bedroom space. I’m loving those gorgeous amber lamps. They look totally elegant surrounded by grey walls.

Cristi Holcombe Interiors, LLC

Smoky grey walls become the background for an eclectic mix of dining chairs in this space. Look at all the great textures: wood, leather and upholstery — all in tones of tan and brown. Mismatching can be fun!

Beckwith Interiors

An area rug is almost always a wonderful way to introduce accent color and texture into a neutral space. Here, grey, khaki and honey wood tones are anchored with a pretty purple rug.


Dark charcoal-gray walls paired with softly-stained wood flooring and cabinetry create a stunning look in this bathroom. A dose of vivid wasabi green guarantees that this space is anything but drab.

Modern Organic Interiors

A grey slate fireplace surround is the focal point, but its strong appearance is softened by means of a pair of natural wood shelves on either side. The combination of natural materials creates an organic feel, whereas orange accent chairs add spark.
