Hi Kylie, I always find your articles fun and interesting, thank you! Because it has a slightly stronger creamy warmth, it’s a hard one to partner up with paint colours on the walls compared to more flexible whites and off-whites. We’re looking to sell the house. Well, some people find that it’s just a touch too warm/creamy and the 4 ounces can just clean it up a stitch. My kitchen looks fine but a corner of my dining room looks bright yellow. I love it! I am leaning toward Albaster.
Oooo, I might not put it with Accessible Beige, it’s okay with Balanced Beige, but still not great as it has considerably more yellow/colour to it compared to the more muted approach of Balanced Beige :).
Here are just a FEW reasons why I recommend Samplize to my clients….
Well, because a) I’m easily amused when I’ve had two glasses of wine and b) because without yellow – there is no cream! Is there enough contrast using both together? It’s all about exposure and ‘what it’s with’. Thanks for creating such helpful and thorough reviews.
I want some contrast between the two colours….maybe Pure White? Creamy in a north-facing room. Thank you Julie!

I know this article was written 2 years ago and I am surprised at how many comments it got!! You need to improve your interior lighting before you pick a paint colour. Would you agree with that or is there another color that is a better match? Creamy behind the mirror and on the wall in the reflection.

We’re painting the walls and leaving the creamy trim to help the cost. Hi Kylie, And yes, it can be SO hard to shift a colour from one house to another as the lighting can REALLY mess with things – I’m sorry you didn’t love Creamy as much in your new home – thank goodness for wine ;).
Your email address will not be published. But I stuck with you and to your credit you grew on me and now I love you!! I LOVE Creamy in a north-facing space, I believe that’s where it’s at its very best. Lastly I need to figure out the ceiling. I love it so much, that when it was time for a refresh, yep, I used Creamy once again. Why do you recommend making it more white? What is the dark color on the accent wall? Thanks! Hi Lindsay, I just LOVE notes like this! © Copyright 2020 Meredith Corporation. AWFUL. Painting the baseboards and doors are not currently an option….double sigh & roll my eyes, so my paint color expedition has been quite perplexing. Thank you Kylie, apologies.
Ooo yes, it is a tricky one! This was soooo helpful! Hooray!! 2018 saw a big surge in popularity in sage-colored walls, and our current pick is not far off from a muted mossy green, but it's firmly outside that box. Hi Kathy, love your color advise. I was trying to figure out a color for my 2 story/vaulted ceiling living / dining room, stairway and loft that is mostly north facing with 1 east and 1 west window. I don’t get a lot of light. Why is that funny? The Best Paint Colors from Sherwin Williams: 10 Best Anything-but-the-Blues. Thank you.
I personally think it’s got a teensy bit of green in it. Barcelona Beige, Sherwin Williams This beige shade maxes out on the warmth scale without any sickly yellow undertones. Online decorating and e-design, e-decor consultations.
Hi Cheryl! These 2 photos show the ABSOLUTE warmest Creamy will look (south-facing/warm bulbs), Read more: The Best Paint Colours for a South-Facing Room. I know, I know, gray?!
Read more: How to Decorate a HIGH-ENERGY BRIGHT Room. This colors looks so subtle and soft! So in a new home I painted my kitchen/dining walls creamy as well as my master bath and I TRULY believe if your lighting is awful, even the most beautiful of colors can look terrible. Ok we’re buying a house that has Creamy on the trim and gold walls. Whites also don’t always cover well, and the 4 ounces can help with that! I want a slight off white (not stark white) but not too beige or too yellow. It’s not too white and it doesn’t go yellow, like say BM linen white.
