This shower features cream and brown tiles in various shapes to create an eye-catching look. Clay grouting was used between the tiles to add a softer edge, while a bench boasts the same marble seen throughout the bathroom. A window allows natural light to flood the space and brushed bronze fixtures add a finishing touch.
This Upper West Side studio began its life as a bland white box. Now, soft cream on the walls continues to the ceiling beams, adding depth and dimension to the space. The hand-painted pinstriped paint treatment is both easy to produce and easy to cover up, an ideal combo for a rental. Removable wallpaper by LABLstudio forms a focal point on one wall, and layered bedding exudes youthful, casual charm.
A double-wide, glass-enclosed shower designed by Drew and Jonathan Scott of Buying and Selling is the centerpiece of this simple yet elegant bathroom. Large cream-colored tile on the lower half of the shower contrasts against the small glass tiles used on the floor and top of the shower. The clean, reflective surfaces of the tile make the entire bathroom brighter.
In addition to a mix of different whites and textures, shape and sheen play a crucial role in the success of a white-on-white tablescape. Stylist Camille Styles creates placeholders from jingle bells, cream card stock and nude-toned satin ribbon to introduce new shapes and sheen to this holiday table.
With antique French and English touches, traditional design is a picture of elegance in a room nicknamed “The Classic Corner” by designer Patricia McLean for a Home for the Holidays house in Atlanta. A French gilt mirror is surrounded by antique botanical prints by Abraham Munting and Dutch landscapes with gilt rope frames. The French gilded candlesticks were wired as table lamps to give height to the cream-painted chest.
Frosted glass French doors open to the soft gray-green walls of this quiet transitional nursery. A cream and brown wooden crib matches the tall dresser complete with open shelving and drawers. The crib is layered with a sold brown, solid ribbed green, and jungle patterned blue cushions. A neutral shag rug provides some color over the wood floor.
In this open kitchen and dining area, the spaces are defined by a large kitchen island and a row of pendant lights. A white dining table, cream-colored sideboard and green-striped curtains lend French country style to the space. At the opposite end of the room, white columns subtly set off the living room.
The owners of this 1918 Craftsman home wanted a front yard and porch that would be instantly welcoming. The original exterior's green stucco was switched out to navy blue siding that paired handsomely with the home's cream-colored trim. For a cohesive look from yard to porch, designers used planters painted the same pale gray as the chairs and porch floor.

The cream cabinetry lets the special design of the surround breath and be eye-catching.
Three ornamental and ornate art installations hang on a brown wall in this traditional living room that includes a cream-colored sofa, red patterned and neutral striped pillows, a red and gold armchair, brown coffee table, sideboard, and end table. Red accents in the floral arrangement and floral artwork compliment the color scheme of the room.
Designer Debbie Talianko designed this transitional living room with touches of the beach and sea, particularly in the soft greens and blues she chose to accent the room. The white sectional sofa and cream walls give the space an airy feel and allow pops of colors in the pillows, area rug and dining room upholstery to take center stage. Also noteworthy is the beach-themed art that punctuates the wall behind the sectional sofa.
Neutral tones create a sophisticated and calm atmosphere in this dining room. The rectangle dining table is surrounded with light wood chairs featuring cream cushion upholstery and a nailhead trim finish. A white area rug and white molding brighten the room and provide a break in the beige and wood finishes. Antique style garden tools mounted as wall art and a heavy neutral meal chandelier highlight the farmhouse influence in the design.

African textiles don’t only just stand out for their patterned designs, it’s the colorways as well. Interior designer Genevieve Gorder developed a version of mud cloth where the color palette stands out. Her Mali Mud Cloth Inked Pillow (https://www.tonicliving.com/products/mali-mud-cloth-inked-pillow) features faded black and cream. According to Gorder the faded shade provides a “grounding effect”.
An ornate wood surround frames the stove area in this traditional kitchen, while stunning wine storage is tucked away in the adjoining room. Mediterranean influences seep into the details through the ornate carving on the stove surround and thick molding on the cream cabinetry. Small drawers in the surround are perfect for storing easy-to-reach spices and herbs, while a small shelf provides easy access to oils and vinegars.
Whip up a batch of apple dumplings for a crowd-pleasing dessert. Pastry-wrapped apples nestled into a sweet caramel sauce aren’t difficult to make. They hold their own when served as dessert at an elegant dinner or cozy family supper. The secret to success is to use a pastry that contains butter and egg yolk. That blend is pliable enough to make wrapping apples a breeze. (Pastry with shortening is too short and tends to break.) Serve warm apple dumplings solo, or pair with ice cream, milk or cream. If you don’t want to gobble all the pastry calories, try your hand at making baked apples (baked whole apples with skins on). They’re decadent enough for even the sweetest tooth in your gang.
