Your bedroom should be a calm, peaceful place meant for rest. You may already know that the temperature of your bedroom can impact your sleep, but did you know the color can, as well? As part of a bedroom redesign, consider painting your walls a soothing color that matches your other décor.
You’ll be more relaxed in a comforting space, so reach out to your local painter or go to your local painting and home design center to speak with an expert and find the perfect color for you. To help get you started, the following colors are known to create a mellow mood.
Blue. We’re not thinking a royal here. Try a light sky blue or a deep cobalt to calm the mind and lift the spirits. Darker hues like midnight blue evoke nighttime and sleep, to further help you get ready for bed. Pair it with a bright yellow accent to toss in a little splash of sunshine.
Cream. For walls, a pure white can be too stark. Skip it and go for a gentle cream shade for an easy-on-the-eyes color solution. Not into cream on the walls? Try cream-colored bedding for a cloud-like slumber station, or cream or white accent rugs.
Lavender. While purple is a beautiful color and suggests royalty, it can be a bit bold and much for some. Enter lavender. This lighter tone would be perfect to paint one accent wall, or even better, your ceiling.
Green. Skip the neon and choose a seafoam or spruce shade to help mellow your mind. A cream shade matches well with most greens if you want the perfect accent color. Forest greens are calming as well and conjure thoughts of being outdoors in a peaceful evergreen forest.
Gray. This neutral tone is versatile and can easily match any décor. Consider a soft, muted heather or a deep slate or charcoal. Pairing gray with white or lighter gray hues creates a great look. Think a striking white comforter on your bed against a slate background.
By taking inspiration from these colors, and working with your local painting experts, you’ll be creating a Zen-like bedroom oasis in no time.
