the key to mixing cream and white in decor and fashion...

I love neutrals, and the sophisticated, stylish look of cream and white paired together.
 If you think it's a bit mysterious how some people can pull off the chic look you'll be
 surprised at how simple it is. It works in decor, accessories, and fashion.
Check out these inspiration pics and I'll bet you have it figured out before you get to the end!

I absolutely love this idea. I have been so nervous to do a white and cream room for fear of it getting dirty so quickly, but I really to get over that and just do it. xx

Lisa @ Shine Your Light said...

I love how you think about color combinations! Yes, the bright white is what gives it that crisp clean fresh look, love it!
