One of the reasons I love Kilim Beige is because it creates a warm and cozy atmosphere in any room. It's a soft color that doesn't overpower the other design elements in the space. It's also a Neutral color that can easily coordinate with other colors and patterns.

Light can have a significant effect on how paint colors appear in a North-facing room. North-facing rooms receive the least amount of direct sunlight, so they tend to have a cooler and bluer light. This cool light can make paint colors look darker and more muted than they would in a room with more natural light.

In addition to the cool light, north-facing rooms can also have a tendency to feel more shadowy. To counteract all this, I often recommend Kilim Beige as warm, inviting paint color that will help to create a cozy and welcoming atmosphere.

In a South-facing room, Kilim Beige can appear lighter, creamier and brighter than it would in a North-facing room, thanks to the abundance of natural light. This can enhance the warm undertones in the color and make the room feel cozy and comfortable. However, if the room receives an excessive amount of direct sunlight or if there are warm-toned elements in the room, such as warm wood flooring or furnishings, it can amplify the warmth of Kilim Beige and make the room feel too hot or overpowering.

To avoid this, it's important to consider the overall balance of colors and textures in the room. If the room already has a lot of warm-toned elements, it may be best to balance the warmth of Kilim Beige with cool accents, such as blues or greens, or with neutral colors like white or gray. Additionally, it can be helpful to use the paint samples and observe how the color looks in different lighting conditions throughout the day to ensure that it doesn't appear too warm or overpowering in the space.

Overall, Kilim Beige can work well in a south-facing room, but it's important to consider the specific lighting and decor in the room before making a final decision on this paint colors.

In an east-facing room, Kilim Beige can appear slightly cooler and more subdued than it would in a south-facing room. This is because the morning light is generally cooler in color then from the South, which can balance out the warm undertones of the color and create a more neutral appearance.

Warm wood tones and other warm-toned elements can complement the warmth of Kilim Beige, while cooler elements like metal or blue accents can help to balance the color and create visual interest.
