If you are looking for a sophisticated and calming neutral palette for your home, then how about a touch of taupe decor like these two homes? Taupe rooms feel serene and simple, but appear warmer than basic cool white, they also can be teamed with a whole host of accent colors though accessories that continue the flow look equally beautiful. Take a look at this pair of interiors, and maybe you will find yourself falling in love with the idea of a taupe home design.
We find our first home in Moscow, designed by Ore Andrey. The 130 square meter apartment was created as a quiet and comfortable nest for a married couple and their two children. The rich, deep taupe curtains match sumptuously with the taupe feature wall.
Just a shade lighter than the paint, the taupe cushions break up the pale sofa, and a lamp finishes the look.
The adjoining dining room area incorporates a glossy cream panel to pull in the lighter elements of the lounge space.
In the taupe bedroom, a curvaceous ceiling structure has been installed as a fun alternative to an oversized headboard. Butterfly cutouts decorate the unusual installation, and a nearby wall displays the negative colorway of the pretty effect.
A textured taupe bedspread adds interest to the light colored bedstead.
The kids’ bedroom takes a break from the taupe color scheme, and instead is a purple and pink fairytale room complete with castle mural.
Back in the kitchen diner, the cabinets have been picked out in contrasting white and deep walnut veneer.
The second home design is another Moscow based property, created by Mezhevova Dean, which covers an overall area of 311 square meters. Here, a smoky natural stone finish on the kitchen cabinetry works beautifully behind a row of seven twinkling lights suspended over a long dining table.
Around the large table, ten dining chairs provide a comfortable welcome for big dinner parties.
The taupe dining suite sits beautifully against natural wood tone.
A mottled effect gives pale taupe bathroom walls extra interest.
