Beige room ideas might not seem like the most exciting of schemes but, take it from us, they’re worth a look. Beige is a comforting, inviting colour to use in your home – whether it’s on the wall or in furnishings and accessories – and it’s super easy to add accent colours to, both neutral, natural ones and bright bolds.

Now, beige is having a moment. Dulux announced this week that this year’s Colour of the Year 2021 is Brave Ground – colour they say is grounding and one that will provide a firm foundation for change and creativity in our homes. And yes, of course, its choice is inspired by the pandemic and our need for comfort at home. 

We love it… and so we’ve put together a gallery of room ideas so that you can see how easy it is to use

Bed Bath & Beyond’s New Design Service Brings the Dorm Room Home

michael jhon

For students who will be missing out on the dorm experience this fall, Bed Bath & Beyond has a solution.

Today, the retailer launched College From Home, a new service to help the many students who will be studying online this fall redesign their bedrooms to capture as much of the university experience as possible.

“One of the things we were hearing quite a bit, in particular from parents, is that they really didn’t want their daughter or son to miss out on having the college shopping experience,” said Cindy Davis, the home goods retailer’s CMO.

The owners felt a large extension, across the back of the house, would plunge their dining room into darkness. The
