  • The best cream paint colors for walls – these warm white paint colors are all around easy to use.

    The most beautiful cream paint colors - get the details at

    You’ve seen all of these pretty cream paint colors before in our home, but given that it’s one of the most frequently asked questions, I wanted to share more about them. I know how agonizing selecting a color can be!

    Maybe you recall how I obsessed over our exterior paint colors and had the neighbors thinking I was crazy with every swatch I had Chris test! In response to your questions, I’m sharing my tried and true cream paint colors and how they look in actual rooms.

    One of the most frustrating things about selecting a paint color is how the swatch varies from computer and swatch to wall. Last week I thought I had selected the perfect blue hue for a piece of furniture online, then when I got to the store I realized it was a much brighter indigo versus the dark, dusty navy I thought it was. While colors can still vary from one space to another, seeing it in a room is much more indicative of the color than a swatch.

    Paint colors can vary based on the previous wall color and light in the room, so I thought I’d show you various lighting situations for paint colors so that you can make an informed decision on the best cream color paint for your home.

    Warm white paint colors offer a neutral background but feel anything but stark. Cream color paint makes your home feel warm and inviting.

    The image above and below is the same paint color used on bedroom walls, one photographed in morning sun and the other in afternoon sun.

    Here is another example of the same cream paint color in the master bedroom:

    All of the above bedrooms are painted Benjamin Moore Soft Chamois {using Valspar’s Signature paint found at Lowe’s}, in eggshell.

    Finding the right white paint color - a neutral paint palette

    We painted the living room Sherwin Williams Zurich White {in Valspar Signature at Lowe’s} eggshell sheen. You can see how the same cream paint color reads in full daylight.

    You can see how dusty this cream becomes as the sun fades in the image below.

    See how cream paint colors differ from one room to another to select the right white paint color for you!

    Another go to cream paint color I love is Sherwin Williams 7012 Creamy which I also contemplated using in our mudroom and kitchen. This photograph of Adalyn’s dresser is a good representation of the color. The wall behind is also Zurich White – the color of the 3 images above.

    The best cream paint color for trim

    And for trim? I pair these colors with Valspar Paint + Primer Ultra White Base 221395.

    We painted the screened porch in Sherwin Williams Everyday White in Valspar Signature – it’s soft so soft, yet warm and inviting.
