After 26 seasons as host of 'Wheel of Fortune' and counting, Vanna White deserves some rest and relaxation. Luckily, her dressing room at Sony is the perfect place to kick back. Photos of the game-show hostess's dressing room show a cozy, neutral space fit to be a living room. It's practically a masterclass in using relaxing colors.

Even better, the calming shade in Vanna's room is one of this year's biggest color trends: beige.

Vanna's space is decorated exclusively in warm neutrals. She has a dark tan carpet with beige armchairs, a beige sofa, and beige and white decorative pillows. Her walls are a warm, oaky brown and her countertops are topped with reddish-tan marble. Vanna White's space is a beige room idea for the ages.

Design experts love Vanna's color scheme which they say is relaxing and timeless. First, interior designers emphasize that this color promotes calmness. Julio Arco, interior designer at Bark and Chase states: 'Beige, which is often considered a calming, versatile color, has many benefits.' He continues, 'One of its strengths is its ability to create an environment that promotes relaxation and comfort.' Interior designer Devin Shaffer adds 'Beige is innately warm and we find that it works best in spaces meant to be cozy and tranquil.'

Furthermore, designers say that decorating with beige will always be in style. Julio Arco tells H&G, 'Beige's neutral undertones mean it can seamlessly fit into most design schemes, providing a backdrop that subtly supports more vibrant colors or stands alone for a minimalist aesthetic.'

Devin Shaffer continues, 'There are tried and true, timeless and classic colors that have proved themselves over the centuries and beige is one of them, for good reasons. Beige can adapt to different lighting conditions and design styles. It doesn't dramatically change with different lighting sources, which makes it one of the easiest colors to work with for paint and interior finishes.'
