Favorite Cream Paint Colors

Reader Question + Favorite Cream Paint Colors

I received a question from a reader a little while ago searching for the perfect paint color for his mom. Super sweet. ¬†He is looking for a paint color to go in his Mom’s living room and family room, that is slightly divided by an archway and would like a color that is light but has warmth. Rich creams are beautiful colors and today I wanted to share a few of my favorites with you on the blog.

I love cream, it’s a classic color and can be a great neutral for any room in the house. Below are a few of my favorites and I believe would work for any living room or family room. Of course the pictures are only pictures, but it can give you an idea of the color and suggestions for decor.

If you are looking for the perfect cream color for your home, my best advice would be to sample and to paint that sample on a piece of white card stock instead of directly on the wall. I have painted numerous samples on my walls and the current wall color next to the sample can distort it. The best depiction of the color will be on a piece of white card stock. Move the card stock around the room and look at it different times of the day to look for any weird undertones you don’t like. Creams especially can be tricky because they can appear to be more yellow or pink than cream, so sample, sample, sample! ūüôā

2017 Paint Color Trends

Happy 2017 everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and are inspired to make this new year the best one yet. I am adjusting to having 4 kids and getting back to reality. We’ve had a little bit of a honeymoon phase at our house with the kids out of school and my husband being able to take off work – today is our first “real” day back. So far so good!

Here are a few popular paint brands and their color forecasts for this year. You’ll notice a trend – definitely cooler colors and a lot of purples and blues. If you’ve been following my blog for long, you know I love blues but I have never been a fan of purple undertones, or purple in general for that matter, but maybe this will be the year that I embrace it.

I would love to try Alchemy on a cute piece of furniture and maybe Marea Baja for our laundry room that needs to be done? Mature Grape could make a bold statement in a bedroom paired with gold accents.
