Cream wall paints – these colors are growing in popularity right now.
More and more people are craving a bit of warmth and moving away from all bright white interiors.

What are the best cream wall paint colors?
Cream wall paints will work in every room of your home.
Interior designers rely on these creamy white color choices when designing living rooms, family rooms, dining rooms – really any room.
These paint colors are all popular for a reason.
Warm and inviting – these versatile neutral wall colors are so easy to work with.
However, the amount of actual cream wall paint colors available out there can be daunting.
So today, it’s all about narrowing down all these options to three of the best cream wall paint colors to use.
Benjamin Moore Linen White
Starting off with Benjamin Moore’s Linen White.
This neutral paint color with creamy undertones is what we have on our mudroom walls (as seen in the image above.)
The contrast with our dark wood floors works great in this room.
This cream wall paint also works great with white trim.
All of the trim work in our mudroom is painted in White Dove by Benjamin Moore.
Benjamin Moore Chantilly Lace
Our guest bedroom.
While I have more of a detailed review of Chantilly Lace in a separate post, I did want to mention it again here.
This popular wall paint color is a great option to keep in mind when looking for a cream wall paint color.
After seeing it in our guest bedroom, above, I’ve become a big fan of this color.
Chantilly Lace has a slight warmth to it, perfect for a cozy bedroom vibe.
This is also a great color choice for your kitchen cabinets!
Benjamin Moore Swiss Coffee
Our upstairs hallway.
The third cream wall paint color I recommend is Benjamin Moore’s Swiss Coffee.
We have this beautiful subtle color on our hallway walls and it continues up the stairs to our finished attic.
Like most center hall colonial homes, the lighting is not great in this hallway so I tried to take two different angles to give you a better sense.
This is a gentle cream color which contrasts perfectly with our dark hardwood floors.
Update: There’s now a full post dedicated to Benjamin Moore Swiss Coffee.
Sample Your Cream Wall Paint Color Choices
You need to love the paint colors you choose for your walls.
Which is why I can’t recommend trying it out as a sample in your home first.
Because, as you can see from my photos above – even the surrounding light from one room to another can differ, and this will vastly change the look of any paint color.
Live with a few samples for a few days before making your final decision.
Always be sure to test the color in natural and artificial light too!
Also, another great way to test out a paint color are these self sticking paint samples.
Doesn’t this sound so clever?
No messy paint cans to deal with before you commit! Win/win!
If you’re at all curious, you can find them here and try it out as a sample in your home first!
I tend to use a lot of Benjamin Moore paints, but I have nothing against Farrow and Ball or Sherwin Williams, or any other well known paint brand.
These brands all offer similar cream color options and can be found over on Samplize as well!
