While MOTH continued bashing more bricks out of the bathroom wall on Sunday arvo (photos now too shocking for anyone to see!), I spent a couple of hours sanding & painting a couple of old picture frames. As I was giving them a final coat, I noticed the colour I was using from an old sample tin was called Clotted Cream. I started to think how fond I am that colour, and so here's some of my favourite cream images.


  1. What a beautiful serene colour. No doubt exactly what you need given MOTH's banging around. I particularly love the image from Smart Blinds - it looks so inviting. Have a great day. Lee :)

  2. Clotted cream - good enough to eat. Love these beautiful monocolour images. As much as I love colour I always come back to neutrals and whites.

  3. Like the soft color scheme!

  4. Love it all! Confeeion~ sometimes I purchase paint colors just because I like the names!!!

  5. Dear old MOTH, he's given that bathroom a bashing hasn't he! Clotted cream.... even sounds delicious... rich and smooth.... just like these gorgeous images! A-M xx

  6. How could I not visit a post called clotted cream, one of the most wonderful indulgences in life? I enjoyed this post very much, and am thinking about the Muffin Man in London, one of the most reasonable and perfect places to get clotted cream and scones in the world.

  7. so pretty and so calming.. thanks for the comment on my site and for all of the lovely details regarding your beautiful window treatments!
    Have a great week!
