Having a cream room will definitely create the ideal sleeping space. It has calming and comforting connotations which is precisely what you want from your bedroom. Being surrounded by a cream colour palette has a sense of purity and openness to relax you. It’s a soft shade that’s gentle on your eyes with no distractions. Just make sure you pair it with other soothing colours for the perfect design.
It can be hard to choose what to include in cream bedroom ideas, especially as there are a lot of cream products available. We’ve made the job easier by putting together a list of things to complete the style.
Many bed frames will suit this bedroom theme, so you could stick with what you have. A wooden or white bed frame will tie in nicely with a cream room. For those wanting a full bedroom makeover, we have picked out a suitable option for you.
This ottoman bed is a good choice for a modern cream bedroom style. It's an upholstered bed frame covered with bouclé for a textured finish. The headboard is winged and cocoons the bed for an extra cosy feel so you'll be ready to snuggle up in the evening. With this option, you even have the storage underneath to store things tidily out of sight. From the low-slung design, the colour and practicality, this bed makes for a relaxing piece in your cream room.
For a cream bedroom, you can choose anything from beige to white to off-white bedding. In fact, if you're wanting to add a splash of colour, you could go for a light-coloured set. We have picked out a cream one to match the rest of the room.
This duvet cover set is so beautiful and will make your cream bedroom feel complete. The cream shades are paired with ivory to create the bordered patterning. The layers have different textures created by tiny diamonds or soft quilted diamond detailing in the centre to give an elegant touch. For the pillowcases, you get a pair that have a three-section design. One section has the smaller diamonds, followed by the border and finished with a larger plain section. The attention to detail for this bedding set is perfect.
If you're someone with four pillows on the bed then you might be looking for two extra pillowcases. We found ones in the same collection as the bedding above, so you already know they are going to work nicely together. Pop these behind the ones include in the set and your bed will be transformed. The border of the Oxford Pillowcase will poke out the sides, giving a soft and sophisticated look. You will feel like you're sleeping in a sumptuous way.
This is where you can find plush rugs, gorgeous cushions, throws and curtains. You can bring in luxury bedroom ideas too as you'll notice that a lot of cream cushions have a luxurious style. The soft furnishings can be simple, elegant or extravagant – it depends on what you're looking to have in the rest of the room.
The rug is available in several sizes so you're sure to find one that fits your space. Those with a bigger bedroom can find the size that will fit into your floor space so you're room has a cosier ambience. If you have a smaller room then you can tuck some of the rug under half the bed leaving the edge on show. Although it's a low pile, it's still soft on your feet and can make the bedroom feel warm and snug – especially if you don't have carpets in that room. A simple yet chic addition to the cream bedroom ideas.
We couldn't resist adding this cushion into our list. Of course, we had to choose the cushion that matches the bedding range. It uses the tiny diamonds on either side with a larger textured panel around the centre. This Bardot Cream Cushion is a fair bit smaller than the pillows so will look lovely front and centre of them. You can have the one cushion or if you like a bit of symmetry then feel free to get two cushions for both sides of the bed. But why not complete the full bed set? (You might even find the bedspread too…).
You might find the cream bedroom furniture is named white bedroom furniture, but either of them will work perfectly. Just try not to pick something that's pure white as this gives a different aesthetic. Bedside tables or drawers with natural woods combined with cream can make for the ideal pieces of furniture.
A traditional nightstand with a cream finish and natural wood on top – pure elegance. Every part of it has a timeless design and remains stylish. The surface space gives you somewhere to put a candle, keep your sleep essentials or to have a little lamp. Underneath there's a drawer to keep your bedside neat and to keep the top surface as clear as possible. At the bottom of the nightstand there's a small shelf where you can pop your current reading book or it can be the place to put your slippers while you sleep. This nightstand has a lot of potential and it just suits the light and airy aesthetic that cream creates.
If you haven't guessed already, we love a matching range. That's why we have paired this dressing table with the nightstand above. The style works for one piece of furniture so why not have it on another?
In a similar fashion to the nightstand, the dressing table has a natural wood surface for you to rest your mirror on and set up your makeup. On the other hand it can be seen as more of a console table and you might want to use this space for some flowers and other pretty decorations. Below the wood top, there are two slim drawers. This could be for your makeup and skincare or for important documents – the choice is yours. Under the table there's plenty of room for a comfy chair to be tucked away. An all-round useful and beautiful piece.
As for the home decor, we would suggest keeping it to a minimum because a cream bedroom has a calming style so you won't want to clutter it. Just stick to wall lamps to keep the bedside tables clear, or a simple table lamp. Then you can place a couple of vases around the room to add interest.
We thought this vase would look great in a cream bedroom with it's interesting textures, so it's not one flat and plain colour. This cream vase is fairly large and can be displayed on its own, paired with other vases or you could pop in some dried flowers. All of these ideas would work well. You could pair it with other cream vases or find neutral shades like white and beige too. So, whether you want to put it on top of the chest of drawers or stand it on the floor, this vase will look the part. It makes it better that it can fit in with plenty of other aesthetics so you can get a long use from it.
For your bedside table, we have chosen a ceramic lamp that has a delicately speckled base with a cream linen shade. Everything about this lamp is amazing and ties in so well with the other products in our selection. It's simple enough but still adds interest through the subtle design. The bright lamp will light up your bedroom before you drift off to sleep, without needing to use the ceiling light. With a flick of the switch you can be in darkness ready to fall asleep. Your bedtime routine has just got better.
For the walls in your cream bedroom ideas, you could find cream-white paint to have four cream walls. An alternative could be to have beige walls if you're wanting to create white and beige bedroom ideas. Otherwise, those wanting hints of colour worked throughout the bedroom can opt for pale blue walls. If you decide to use cream paint for walls then it could be a good idea to bring the room to life with a large painting or a couple of prints.
We have looked for modern artwork that brings beauty and stillness to the bedroom. You don't really want to have a bold and distracting print on your wall when the rest of your room has been following a different aesthetic.
Clay 1 Canvas Print – A modern abstract design, featuring black, grey, beige and cream, hand-painted on a canvas. This biggest size would look incredible hung above the bed.
Zen Art Canvas Print – A neutral canvas design that is definitely going to make you feel zen. This artwork has been made up of various shades of cream for a unique creation. Another print that would hang nicely above the bed or even above the console table.
Cream bedrooms mixed with beige bedrooms can make the ideal sleep space. It's the right choice if you want a colour palette that is warm, calming and sophisticated. You can incorporate different styles in your cream bedroom ideas – whether that's luxurious, modern, simple or minimal. The possibilities are endless and the choice of accessories are endless too so you'll never be short on ideas. Even if you feel like changing your bedroom again, you can keep the aesthetic the same but just find some new lighting, mirrors and candle holders to feature.
