Beige is a light, sandy fawn color like a pale, grayish yellow and can also be used to describe pale and light brown shades. Its hex code is #F5F5DC. Beige takes its name from the French word for natural wool, which has been neither bleached nor dyed. And it now lends itself as a metaphor to describe something–or someone–bland, boring, or conventional (much like vanilla).
