This classical palette of creams evoke the ambience of bygone eras. In the town or in the country, these traditional tones sit easily with colours of today, as well as historic reds, greens, and blues. With creams, using the classic proportional recipe of half strength in a gloss for window surrounds, skirtings and doors, an eighth strength on the ceilings with full strength on the walls will give a room of any size with old scale stud heights a polished professional edge.

The Dreamier family of colours (pictured below) - Dreamiest, Dreamier, Dream, Day Dream and Double Day Dream.

Designers Secrets

  • using palest cream, rather than the classic "ceiling white" gives a far more professional look to a room
  • if your skirtings are 75mm of smaller, keep them the same colour as the walls - a contrasting colour will squash the room
  • these timeless creams work perfectly with NZ native timber floors

For beautiful accents, try Colourplus colours (pictured below) Direction, Bleached Stone, Rocket, Fever and Tortilla.
