While beige may seem anything but adventurous, the neutral hue has a wide range of untapped potential. The color has the uncanny ability to combine with just about any bold fabric choice, and is tailor-made for a home that embraces hardwood floors and natural accents, according to the Tulsa World.

Jennifer McMahon, an interior design professor at Tulsa Community College, believes that beige is the best choice for homeowners who are looking for a home layout they can change easily.

"I always tell students that when you're helping a client pick out stuff, that with the big things like furniture, go neutral," McMahon told the news source. "You can change out the pillows and paint the walls easily."

Neutral colors that are versatile have the unique ability to give living spaces a timeless quality, and they can highlight many of your design choices. Use a splash of color in the form of throw pillows, blankets and artwork to act as the focal points of the room.

Window treatments such as solar screen shades will make the best use of light in your living room. They offer superior light-filtering ability while still giving a view to the outdoors.
