Give your bedroom a crisp, airy feel as you combine green with cream. Whether you choose to go with a romantic look or with modern clean lines, a soft green complements the buttery yellow undertone found in cream. Distribute the colours throughout the room to create a unified appearance and pleasing design.
Pick the green you want to use as each green shade has an effect on the cream in a different manner. For a classic look, combine a sage green, with its greyish tones, to cream, while an ocean motif would mix teal green and cream. Combine the green of grass or the green of shrubbery with cream for a floral motif. Try a deep forest green or the jewel tones of an emerald green with cream for a dramatic bedroom look.
Paint the walls a solid green accented with cream moulding for the ceiling and baseboards or add a cream bead board around the bottom half of the wall. Pinstripe the room with 1-inch wide cream stripes or stripe the wall horizontally in equal lengths railroad-track style. Apply patterned wallpaper to the room, such as a damask green and cream design or one with palm fronds for a tropical decor Add a floral border of cream peonies and greenery along the ceiling.
Bring the colour combination into your fabrics as you drape green valences over cream sheer or lace curtains. Or go for a geometric-shaped curtain tied back with a green tassel. Put an apple green silk sheet on your bed and a Chinese-inspired cream duvet with green characters over it, and include green pillow shams and a neck roll. Try pastel green brocade spread or a green and cream graphic print or one of plants. Choose a chair with a green fabric for the room.
Place a cream clock with a green face on the wall along with a cream-framed mirror and piece of art. Set cream-coloured photo frames, with a green mat, holding pictures of family and friends on table tops and above the bed. Place cream vases and plant containers around the room holding house plants, such as a spider plant, weeping fig or a Boston fern. Add a small cream jewellery box for your everyday jewellery and a small cream tray for your perfumes.
