Champagne –a luminous color, versatile and celebratory. While many shy away from neutrals, considering them to be drab or uninspiring, neutrals –and a champagne color palette can add a subdued yet elegant feel to your home.

Champagne and cream are taking off in popularity throughout fashion and design, and it’s little wonder why. Beige, sand, and light browns are timeless and beautiful –and can be a great way to dress up a home –effortlessly and fabulously.

Adding cream and champagne colors to your home can have amazing results. Here’s how you can get the look –without going overboard.

Walls, Windows, and Floor

When opting for a champagne color scheme in your home, consider starting with the lightest shades on the walls. Ivory, light beige, or off-white can help to set the stage. For window treatments, champagne and cream colored curtains with brushed iron rods are the perfect neutral accents for a room. Hardwood floors look especially beautiful with a champagne color scheme, or cover floors in a neutral-colored or patterned rug.

Accessories

Throw pillows, blankets, and rugs in varying shades of sand, beige, and cream are excellent accessories. Opt for light and neutral, or throw in some extra glamor with silver metallics. Dark shades of black and browns also lend themselves beautifully to a champagne color palette.

Fixtures and Furniture

Look for furniture in shades of champagne –beige, pale ivory, or silver and grey. Or consider an infusion of monochrome –with a color palette like this, you can’t go wrong with white or black. For fixtures, you could choose silver, brushed iron, or black.

Accompanying Colors

Cream and champagne work beautifully together as the primary color scheme in a room, but if you’re looking to add some more color –why not pair them up with blue, pale yellow, or blush? Rich and vibrant colors can stand out wonderfully against a champagne backdrop.
