We admit, we used to think that taupe was one of those colors that didn’t know what it wanted to be when it grew up. It isn’t really grey an it’s not warm enough to be beige. Taupe was stuck in color Nowhere Land. Then something amazing happened. Taupe grew up. Or maybe we matured. (How did that happen?) We’re pretty sure the color changed, but we digress…
If you are looking for a neutral tone that will take on the properties of the colors you choose to surround it with in your bedroom, consider using taupe. It may be a neutral, but that doesn’t mean that taupe has to be boring. You can add interest to the space by using different textures or varying the shades slightly for a very classic (and classy effect).

Since taupe is a neutral, don’t be afraid to add a splash of color to a bedroom. This blue and taupe space is a great example. The taupe and cream make a great backdrop in the room.
While there is some texture from the headboard and the pillows, the blue tools and the accent pillow immediately draw the eye to that part of the room. Without this element, there is a danger of the room appearing washed out.

This example of a taupe bedroom has a lot of elements to capture your eye. The taupe wallpaper has a metallic pattern, and this look is picked up in the finish of the accent pillows and the fabric of the chair. The black nightstand, white bedding, turquoise chair and accent pillow are nice touches to this inviting room.
