WHITSTABLE ISLAND COTTAGEBeach Style Bedroom, Kent
What Houzz contributors are saying:
The inverse also holds true: If cream walls feels a little too traditional or muddy to you, a white wall with off-white accents allows you to add a little depth to the all-white color scheme. This bedroom strikes that stylistic balance to a tee.MoreMust-Try Color Combo: White With Warm Off-WhiteWhat’s Your Neutral: Beige or Gray?Find bedding products
BedroomsIn a bedroom or den, the combination of white and off-white results in a very restful demeanor. Dreamy cream colors can sometimes appear dingy on their own, but when combined with crisp white bedding and walls, accents like a warm-toned blanket and an antique white nightstand — as in this room — create a perfect balance of contemporary crispness and traditional charm.
The master bedroom is both snug and light. The couple made the headboard themselves using Laura Ashley fabric, now discontinued. “Often modern designs are so easy to make,” Denny says, “and it ensures you’re the only person who owns it.” The blinds are made out of simple lining material.Denny loves the wooden chair, which she found at an auction. “It’s such a pretty seat,” she says. “It’s one of the most feminine chairs I’ve ever seen.”Bedside table: Burford, The Cotswold Company; knitted throw: Laura Ashley; duvet cover: Harrods; bedside lamp: Arstid, Ikea

Pure Brilliant White. In a bedroom or den, the combination of white and off-white is restful. Though DREAMY CREAM colors can appear dingy on their own -- combine with crisp white bedding / walls; warm-toned blanket; antique-white nightstand -- to create a balance of contemporary crispness and traditional charm.
