It's as they say: too much of anything is a bad thing, and this statement definitely applies to interior design. Colour scheme s which are white-on-white, beige-on-beige or for the purpose of this ideabook, cream-on-cream, can have a dulling and saddening effect on a space. Cream is one of the all time favourite colours to use in a bedroom, and it's not hard to understand why. It's warmer than white, and less likely to date than beige, and, more than anything, you can quite literally use cream on every surface and object in a bedroom.

Today we're here to help you create the cream bedroom of your dreams, and show you a range of different examples to complement and contrast cream in a bedroom setting. Take a look…

1. Linen

The easiest way to introduce cream into your bedroom is with linen, of course. Dreamy shades of white and beige work wonderfully with a cream colour palette, creating an ambience that is nothing short of relaxing and calm. Studio Duggan shows off an ethereal bedroom setting here that oozes with class and elegance. 

2. Storage

Even in terms of storage, there is something to suit your cream bedroom. A subtle shade of pale cream, which one would almost be tricked into thinking is white, is the perfect finishing touch to your built-in drawers or shelving unit. Match it in with your wall paint and you're sure to have a balanced and uniformly decorated cream bedroom, as shown here by Propia.

When decorating a cream bedroom, you don't necessarily always have to use similar tones to achieve a calming effect. You can employ contrasting shades, such as brown or gold, to create variance and difference. So why not spice up your bedroom with a geometric or tribal pattern, such as the one pictured by Sigmar, to give a little oomph to your bedroom setting.

4. Furniture

Furniture is of course, a great way to introduce cream into a bedroom. Whether the other features in the space are complementary or contrasting, a cream couch, armchair or loveseat will suit any home of any era. Potter Home completed the refurbishment of this family home, and has placed this cream loveseat under a window for a whimsical and romantic effect.

5. Lighting

Titled the J'amies wall light, the mix of brushed gold and cream finish makes it the perfect lighting addition to a cream bedroom setting. Handmade by Hannah Woodhouse, the fitting is available from Designed By Light, and is most definitely a unique and special finishing touch to a serene bedroom. Just think of the wonderful glow it'll cast…

6. Decorations

Lastly, but definitely not least, you can introduce cream into a bedroom via simple decorative features such as candles and vases. This set from RALLI Design, are more multifunctional than meets the eye. These clear-glazed earthenware tealight holders can flip to become a vase! The colour and finish creates the illusion of candle, just without the mess of melting wax! How clever is that!?
