Cream gets its name from the dairy product naturally produced by grazing cows. To make the pale yellow hue, white is mixed with a tad of yellow. In art, cream is often used as a base for skin tones. A quiet and pleasant hue, cream is neutral, calm and relaxing. The hex code for cream is #FFFDD0.


Like other neutral colors, cream is extremely versatile--combine it with other neutrals for a sophisticated, elegant and conservative feel, add in bright reds, greens, or yellows for a more provocative and eye-catching palette, or use it alongside lavender, and rose pink for a feminine touch.
