Colour Love | Creamy, Earthy + Muted


I came across this image on Pinterest, and knew right away it was from Stadshem Real Estate. I'd even included it in this post, over a year ago. The difference however is easy to see and I have to say I much prefer this cropped version. The creamy white palette gives the room such a cosy feel, proving once again that simple, neutral colours can be really warm and inviting. 

Especially pretty when paired with soft pastels, such as salmon and pale pink, it also goes hand in hand with earthy colours.

The cream-themed moodboard above (and a slightly different version I did for Instagram here) features some great finds. Click on the links to see more:

The 2014 Menu catalogue came out recently and as always, I want everything. The Danish design company founded in 1976 collaborates with some of the most talented designers in the world to deliver beautiful Scandinavian design with true originality. Styled to perfection, the colour palette in these two images makes me swoon.

  1. Such a beautiful, calming colour palette. Great way to add some colour while not going over the top!

    1. Thanks Scrapbook of Style. I couldn't agree more!! x

  2. Michelle!!! lovely palette!!!! super inspiring! thanks

  3. I really like color palette of the apartment on the first picture, so simple yet stunning! I just posted photos of one beautiful apartment in neutrals also on my blog, seems that today is a day of soft and creamy hues! :)

    1. Oh it must be! I'm heading over for a look now! x

  4. Lovely poster with the name Vuokko on it, must be Finnish?

    1. I love it too. I believe so.. I'm sure I've come across it before, but I haven't been able to track it down. If I do, I'll let you know! x

  5. Gorgeous palettes indeed. I'd take anything Menu dishes up also, I've been super impressed with my Norm Teapot and insulated cups. Mel x

    1. They can do no wrong can they? And the Norm Teapot is divine. I want one but I'm just not sure that I can justify it when neither Dean or I drink tea haha .. it would only get used for the odd visitor that chooses a tea over a Nespresso... which is pretty rare!! x x
