Taupe isn’t an in-your-face kind of color but more of a subtle neutral that adds depth to a palette. If taupe were a party guest, It would be the quiet one in the corner shrouded in mystery. While bright red or lime green are dancing on the coffee table, taupe would be the big brother making sure his wilder siblings made it home okay. When I was younger, I didn’t give this color much thought. I found it a bit bland and boring. But, boy was I wrong. This color can add so much depth and life to a color palette and is a great way to add a neutral ground to a palette with bold colors. It can even do amazing things as an accent color in white rooms. What do you think of taupe? Is it a ho-hum color choice for you or do you really dig it’s subtle beauty?
