30 Types of Beige

Beige is a light yellowish brown. It is more than a single color as it is commonly used to describe a wide variety of light earthy browns and yellows. The word comes from the old French bege meaning "undyed wool." Beige was used as a color term in France from around 1855 and the word made its way to English by 1887. It is considered a neutral, drab, earthy and conservative color. The word beige is occasionally used as a metaphor for conservative, unimaginative aesthetics. This connotation is fading as it is far less commonly used in contemporary design as compared to the 1970s and 1980s when it was a common color for interiors, furniture, fixtures, fashion and electronics. The following are common types of beige.
