The beauty of neutral décor
You can interpret almost every interior style with cream and neutral décor. Modern minimalist, natural Scandi, romantic, rustic, country and more styles all look impressive in neutral shades. A cream bedroom or neutral colour scheme makes a smaller bedroom appear larger and evens out the appearance of a room that’s unusual in shape. And – if you have a bedroom with large windows and a lovely outlook – this restful décor will not distract the eye from the views outside. Finally, it’s incredibly sophisticated. Pale and pristine, it’s a pleasure to come home to.
The cream and neutral colour palette
Neutral colours are subtle and understated, and the neutral palette includes greys, browns, beiges, taupes, creams, ivories, whites, off whites and pale, natural woods. Each neutral has its own undertone which can be warm (faint pinks, yellows and golds) or cool (hints of blue, mauve or green). Most neutral and cream bedroom ideas suggest you group similar hues to keep your interior feeling in harmony. Choose ‘warm on warm’, such as a coffee coloured cushion on a cream accent chair or ‘cool on cool’ – perhaps a white bed frame against a grey wall.
Add accent textures, not accent colours
Make the room look completely cohesive with accessories and accents that incorporate some or all of the shades you’ve utilised. Focus on a unifying element. A striped chair or curtain that contains a multitude of colors can tie all of your neutral tones together. Bright pops of colour would ruin the neutral and cream bedroom aesthetic, so forget that bright yellow accent chair or jewel-like blue vase. Instead choose accent pieces in your chosen neutrals with interesting textures, to add depth to your interior. For example a faux fur or knitted throw across the foot of your double bed in taupe; a stunning crocheted ivory cushion; an ornate white painted picture frame; or a table lamp with a textured ceramic base. And who can resist a luxurious, deep pile cream rug?
