What about a dark colour like deep red for the cushions? You could also get a dark brown/red lampshade? Dunnes had a nice selection as did Next. Or you could try TK maxx. We have a lot of cream too, but we felt it was the best option as you can change your accessories to change the look and feel of the room! It's easier to change the cushions etc then to paint the room! Good luck with the search!

I LOVE walnut floors, lucky you! Think teracotta or burnt orange would be nice with the cream as well........

It sounds fab! You can co-ordinate so many colours in with cream...deep reds, rich greens, browns...oh I'm so jealous of the walnut floors!!!

Anyone want to call around and clean my home?? Mess, boxes, washed clothes, bags and wires seem to be everywhere.. Are couch throws the same as the bed ones??? I hate being sick - everything seems to be a huge hassle.... :o(

a dark red or brown cushions or curtains would go well with the cream!! thats what we've done - the walls and couches are cream - the cushions and curtains are a dark chocolate brown *)

My sitting room actually most of my house is decorated in a white-ivory colour. I have lifted most of the rooms with art --- oil on canvas. I have a 4 piece amber sunset design on the sitting room which everyone comments on when they enter the room - it really gives the room a warm cosy feeling. I have a lilly theme in the hall and the one of the guest bedroom ... My H2B is an artist so it's great to get him to design art for the house etc PM me if you are interested in getting art at a discount as a fellow WOL :-)
