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! 🙂
