Bedroom Color Design Basics
Your bedroom color design palette is a personal choice - what colors please you most?
You should use colors you like, but if you want to evoke a certain mood, some colors have shown to be better at evoking certain emotions or moods.
Calming colors are soft colors - blues, greens, and lavenders in a muted shade. Anything too vivid or bright will not be calming. If you are decorating to have a calming effect these colors go quite well together. You could punch it up a bit with some brighter accents in the same colors but with a different tone. I like a sage green for the walls with some light sky blues and lavenders sprinkled around the rooms
Bedding, wall coverings and flooring can be a solid color to keep the calm mood going. Accent with candles and perhaps a table top waterfall.
You can use your bedroom color design to energize you as well. Maybe you want to wake up in the morning ready to go! Then you might want to try bright colors like reds and yellows with maybe a bit of orange thrown in. I love the look of deep red walls even if it may take several coats to cover! Yellow and orange make a nice color combination - maybe a bit 70's so you could do a nice retro design with these colors. Tone it down a bit by using brown as an accent. Of course, you can always use red with black and white for a classically contemporary look. And there’s always a white room (bedding, walls, and floors) with bright red, yellow, blue and orange accents for a mid century feel that will liven up the place.
If you want your bedroom color design palette to be more neutral and elegant, then by all means use tans and off whites. These go well with deep colors and even a tan and black design theme can be striking. Use some deep jewel tones to create a romantic but calming feeling. Gray and brown can be a nice modern color palette – use deep colors not light and you will be surprised how this can give the room a cozy feel that is a bit more modern.
