3 Ways to Add the Colour Cream to Your Living Space

Whether you’re moving house and planning your new décor, or you want to redecorate one of your existing rooms, colour has a large part to play in the overall aesthetics.

While white has proved a timeless colour, helping to create the Scandi, minimal look, the colour cream has proved equally as classic and versatile, capable of creating an elegant, calm environment.

If you want to incorporate cream into your décor but you are not sure the best way to go about this, here are three ways to add the colour cream to your living space.

Colours That Go with a Cream Living Room

The good news is that a cream living room will give you plenty of design options when it comes to pairing furniture, accessories, and other colours.

You first need to consider the shade of cream, some can be off-white or neutral with undertones of pink, grey or orange and others can have a dominant yellow base. Some shades of cream are warmer than others and the shade you choose could impact on what will work well with it.

If you choose a cooler shade of cream, it will work beautifully alongside pale pinks or greens. For those looking at a grey and cream living room, this too would work well, creating a contemporary and soothing fresh look and feel.

Cream also provides the perfect backdrop for wooden furniture and, when looking at bringing in some accent colours, a cream and gold living room will make a real impression!

Wall Colour That Goes with a Cream Sofa or Bed

There are numerous ways of utilising cream into your colour palette. While using it on your walls is one way, you can, of course, look at cream furniture and accessories, from a cream fabric sofa, or cream leather sofa in your living space, to a cream bed in your bedroom.

If that fits in better with what you have in mind, the next decision is what to put on your walls. The beauty of having a cream sofa is that you can choose a bolder wall colour, safe in the knowledge that your cream sofa will help to keep your room from feeling too dark.

Equally, if you wanted a more neutral aesthetic, teaming your cream with a light grey would work beautifully.

Another alternative is a cream and white living room, perfect if you’re looking to create a minimal style but have some subtle variation in your room.

Other Ways to Add Cream

If you’re not sure about the practicalities of a cream sofa or cream sofa bed, there are additional cream living room ideas, which enable you to weave the colour through your design without it being the focal point. These include:

  • Accessories - Think cream cushions, cream picture frames or a cream lampshade to bring some understated elegance into your room.
  • Statement walls - If you don’t want to paint your whole room cream, how about having one wall cream to offset the shade chosen for your other walls?
  • Cream rug - With cream working as an ideal contrast to wood if you have a wooden floor, why not look at a cream rug?

If you’re looking at further ways to bring cream into your bedroom, here are some additional ideas:

  • A cream bed frame - providing a contemporary, fresh aesthetic in your room.
  • A cream sofa bed - offering a classic design when in use as a sofa, and the ultimate in comfort when turned into a bed!
