Neutral colour schemes do not have to come from simple magnolia, ivory or white; with such a fabulous array of nude and natural hues to choose from you can create a bright and cosy ambiance in any room of the home. CLOTTED CREAM tones work wonderfully in both contemporary and classic interior spaces as they can be partnered with a wide range of soft and bright accent colours for a subtle or striking finish.

Colour Palette

You can create a classic elegance in your chosen room by partnering clotted cream with dusky blues, lilacs and mauve for a soft and refined interior finish. For a laid back cafe style interior style then pair clotted cream with deep chocolate and mocha hues for a rich and cosy ambiance. If you wish to create a more bold and colourful home then take a selection of ice cream tones such as clotted cream, mint, strawberry and bubblegum blue that give a fresh and funky finish with a hint of retro charm. More period inspired looks can be achieved by combining clotted cream with deep burgundy red, forest green or aubergine for a dramatic and opulent finish.

 

Cushions

Neutral colours make a great choice for cushions and throws as they can be introduced seamlessly into your current interior decor in a simple and cost effective way. Sumptuous, cream, beige, coffee and mocha cushions will make a fabulous feature on a light or dark upholstered sofa or bedding set. Period style baroque and rococo prints work really well in rich cream colour schemes and can be accented with deep reds and purples or shimmering gold for a decadent and luxurious look. For a more rustic and country inspired style then select clotted cream linen cushions in simple striped, polka dot or floral print designs that will create a cosy shabby chic finish in your chosen room.

Upholstery

Clotted cream upholstery will create a light and uplifting ambiance in any room of the home. A classic French style chaise lounge or armchair will look fabulous in a simple cream linen upholstery and can be teamed with a traditional oak frame for a chateau style finish or a glistening gold frame for a more flamboyant and opulent look. Floral and polka dot fabrics also look great in clotted cream colour schemes and give a cosy country cottage style to your room. If you prefer a more modern design then select clotted cream leather that will look great on a foot stool, dining chairs or bar stools as it can be partnered with natural oak or sleek chrome depending on your interior finish.

 

 

Accessories

Creating a neutral backdrop with clotted cream decor means that your accessories can be used to introduce an accent colour into your chosen interior. Red, blue and black accessories will look great in a clotted cream interior and will create a contrasting focal point when displayed along a mantelpiece or sideboard area. Complimentary cream, glass or crystal items will create a more soft and classic finish that is subtle yet elegant. Gold and copper vases, candle holders and frames look fabulous against a neutral cream interior and give a glistening and illuminating finish to your chosen room.

 

 

Furniture

Cream painted furniture is a popular choice for home interiors as its simple and elegant finish can be accommodated into a wide variety of decors. The country cottage style of these furniture items will give a cosy and welcoming ambiance to your home and creates a sense of space and light in more compact rooms. If you wish to add a contrast to your neutral cream backdrop then a selection of solid oak furniture will create a warm and traditional look that is timeless and refined. A more masculine design can be achieved with some black painted furniture or for the ultimate in opulence a few select gold painted items in a bold French design will create a striking focal point in any living room, dining room or bedroom.
