Dark and moody colors of paint aren’t for everyone, but if you appreciate their dramatic effect, they can be very calming. The trick is to stick with dark hues of cool colors, such as this delicious brownish-purple from Benjamin Moore. The color is called Caponata.
Not only do these bright turquoise walls add color, but the vibrant, patterned pillows make it feel extra fun. A large window and white bedding keep it feeling light & airy.
Soft greys on the walls, ceiling, and larger accessories make for a serene yet contemporary bedroom setting. But vibrant red accents breathe life and personality into the otherwise neutral space.
Bird’s Egg, from Benjamin Moore, brings is a soft blue, but not overly pale or shy. Somewhere between robin’s egg blue and sky blue, it’s a peaceful color that still manages to make a statement.
5. Back In Black
Black might sound scary, but it looks seriously sexy in a bedroom. To keep it from feeling too dark, opt for white bedding and make sure you have enough natural light in the room.
6. Pink and orange bedroom
For a bedroom seeking a cheerfully retro vibe, pink and orange is a great color palette to explore. The colors themselves are bold, but the room itself needn’t be floor-to-ceiling tangerine and Barbie. Incorporate the fresh colors into artwork and pops throughout your otherwise airy, neutral bedroom for a fun and rejuvenating bedroom color scheme.
7. French Gray
Is it gray, or is it green? French Gray (from Farrow & Ball) is really a mixture of both, but looks greener in the light, grayer when it’s dim. If you want a mid-tone color that makes its presence known, yet doesn’t make a fuss, this is the color for you.
8. Dreaming of Paradise
Blue/green palm print wallpaper turns your bedroom into an island paradise. We can practically feel the ocean breeze.
9. Feelin’ Blue
Blue is one of the most relaxing colors ever, which is part of why this aqua bedroom is so dreamy. The Roman shade and matching bed cushion add some pattern to create dimension.
10. Fresh green and a pop of pink
Pink is often associated with babies or young girls, but the truth is, it makes a wonderful accent color in a green bedroom. As a relative of red, pink can play the role of complementary colors with green…more successfully, usually, because the bedroom won’t look like Christmas year-round.
11. Forest Feels
Unexpected, totally, but we’re so here for this earthy, forest green. Combine it with rich, patterned textiles and we’re done for.
12. Forest green with earthy brown
A color combination found all over the place in nature is one we can certainly take seriously, and forest green with earthy browns is no exception. Although the depth and darkness of these colors could be a little overwhelming, the key to making this bedroom feel alive and inviting is to ensure plenty of natural light. A perfect – and natural – balance to nature-based color palette.
