SHOP IT | Creating a relaxing interior in cream yellow

by Bojana Bajac

From mustard to lemon, last year was awash with 50 shades of strong, statement yellow. But while these shades are powerful enough to set the mood for the entire room, cream yellow has a tendency to wear a more minimalistic coat. Cream yellow furniture and decor is taking over where beige left off, acting as a neo vintage neutral – soothing enough to calm and relax the troubled mind.

Yellow stands for wisdom and will power. It aims for courage and positivity, promoting confidence, concentration and happiness. Facing uncertainty of the black swan event, yellow brings optimism and clarity.

The cream yellow colour trend ticks many boxes we are revisiting these days and helps in creating a relaxing interior design.

From longing for warm sunny days to redefining the concepts of abundance and fulfillment, cream yellow supports mental health while we explore dark emotions. Luminous and airy, cream yellow is reminiscent of sunlight and carefree childhood days. Calm enough to create a relaxing atmosphere, yet jam packed with energy and good vibes to brighten up any room.



Creating a relaxing interior design in cream yellow 

When decorating with cream yellow treat it as you would treat black, white and cream. This new breed of mellow yellow operates as any other neutral, blending well with most interior styles. Coupled with black and white, cream yellow creates a cocooning environment, adding character without overpowering the space.

Cream yellow is suitable for wall paints and textiles, but also for large pieces of furniture and decor. Easy to layer, it complements natural materials and organic forms. It’s rich, yet relatively discrete and highly versatile which means it will provide favourable results as both accent and dominant colour.

The mood board below identifies cream yellow as a key emerging neutral to inspire creative projects in the seasons ahead. Light and bright, the concept is designed to lift the spirits yet cannot but hint the restlessness and turmoil of the moment. Airy and bubly, it seeks calm in introspection, using cream yellow furniture and decor to balance tradition and novelty.

Would you give it a shot?
