“There's more to it than meets the eye”
Cream tones are known to be receptive to a multitude of patterns and textures. It dominates the world of interior design because of the blissfulness it brings that feels like a warm hug. Different shades of cream can set the tone for your space, making it feel cozy and inviting without trying too hard. No matter what furniture you pair it with, cream will not only add a soft and luxurious touch to any interior but also bring peace and harmony in your living room.
Planning to spruce up your cream living room?
Cream is an incredibly versatile colour that can be used to add warmth and comfort or create a space that’s ready for entertaining. We’ve got a few tips for making the most out of your cream living room. First, look for bright pops of colour with fun accent pieces like streamers or potted plants instead of dark wood or metal that would clash with the rest of the space. Cream is often confused with beige and white, but it can work well in bolder, brighter spaces.
The next idea is you can add visual layers to your cream living room with bold prints or backdrops. This will make the space feel livelier and more vibrant. You can also go for a subtle pattern, which will give the room a softer look. If you want to add some interest to your cream living room without going all out with prints, try painting some of the walls or even just one wall in an accent colour (such as peach or light blue).
Layering an area rug over wall-to-wall carpeting can give your room that cozy feeling and a sophisticated atmosphere. You’ll want to make sure that the rug is large enough for everyone to walk on comfortably, so you may want to buy two different sizes of rugs depending on how many people are likely visiting at any given time (or if there will be more than one person sleeping). If possible, try out some different styles before making any final decisions about what works best for your home!
If your living room is on the smaller side, choose furniture with transparent legs, so the floor seems more open. To introduce texture and dimension into a cream living room, layer fabrics and textiles. In addition to rugs, drapery can provide extra warmth and comfort when it's chilly outside.
You may want to consider adding some greenery to make your cream living room feel more alive. Incorporating greenery to your cream living room can be a great way to add visual diversity and texture. Plants are also great for helping clean the air, reducing stress, and providing beauty in one little package. When choosing plants for your cream living room, think about their size—will they fit with the rest of the decor? If so, go ahead and purchase them! Or if you would rather find another option that works better with this space (or even another type), then do so!
Lastly, let your sofa do the talking with different kinds of cushions like plains, neutrals, darks, and the like. As you add elements like florals, animal prints, and bold artwork, keep them consistent so they play off each other instead of overwhelming one another.
Cushions for your cream living room
You’ll be spending a lot of time lounging in the sofa when you’re in a living room, so you might as well be comfortable with the cushions. Cream is a calm and cozy colour, but sometimes it can make your living room look too plain. If you're looking for ways to upgrade your cream living room, cushions are a great option. They can be both stylish and functional, which makes them perfect for adding interest and texture to an otherwise neutral space.
Frangipani - Fuchsia Pink Hand Embroidered Cushion
Take a look at what we discovered from a trip in Sumba, Indonesia, a hand embroidered pink cushion that we named “Frangipani”. The fabric used was originally created in a tubular form and worn folded over as a skirt, or "Lau" by the Sumbanese women.
What's even more interesting is that how they value their textile crafts. Sumbanese fabrics are an integral part of their culture. They use it for trade or to show that a contract is binding. It is also a form of payment, dowery, or a show of gratitude and appreciation for one another. The Sumbanese are buried with their textiles in order for their ancestors to recognise them in the afterlife from the symbols embroidered or woven that show social status, clan, and wealth.
Have speckled wallpaper as backdrop for your couch and then artfully place Frangipani to introduce a light and loving atmosphere.
