How to style a cream living room colour palette

Cream is a versatile shade that never goes out of style. That’s what makes it such a popular choice for living rooms – you spend a lot of time in your living room, which means you don’t want a colour palette that will date quickly or that you’re likely to get sick off. And while some people might assume a cream living room colour palette is ‘boring’, we think that – when combined with other colours, or interesting textures – it’s a chic, grownup way to style your space. Here’s our favourite cream living room ideas, and how to style them.

Cream living room accessories

While cream living room furniture can be risky – especially for families with children or pets – cream living room accessories add a chic look to your space without the constant cleaning worries. Or, if your room’s colour palette is already bold, they’re the perfect way to temper its look while avoiding a colour clash. We love these characterful cream vases with fun faces, like the blown away vase and face drops vase. This red and cream vase is bold without being overpowering, thanks to the neutral cream details. While this gold and cream vase adds a luxe look to your cream living room.

Cream living room rugs

Cream living room rugs are a good choice because they’re easy to style with your existing colour palette, whether it’s similarly neutral or a little more bold. Just be sure to choose a cream rug that’s easy to clean – rugs are one of the hardest things to keep looking fresh when it comes to living room furniture. This cream sheepskin rug is textured and cosy, while this classic black and cream Moroccan rug has a more modern look.

Cream living room lighting

When it comes to living room lighting, it’s easy to overlook it in the design process – making it harder to pick a piece that matches the rest of your living room decor. Cream living room lighting works well with most interior decor styles, and has the benefit of creating the illusion of extra light. This cream bandage light is textured and playful, and goes well with this similarly textured cream wall lamp. For something more traditional, we love this cream and chrome wall lamp.
