Your bedroom should act as your personal sanctuary: a place where you come to rest, recharge, and retreat from your busy life. A bedroom is where you're able to express yourself and your style more freely, without worrying whether it will tie in with the rest of your home.
That said, we don't recommend you start painting the walls bright pink! A bedroom's main purpose is for rest and sleep, so it's best to choose colors that promote this such as blues, greens, and lilacs, or dark, moodier colors such as charcoals, navy blue, and soft grays. Brighter colors such as pinks and yellows can create a cheerful vibe — just be sure to use them sparingly and consider muted, tonal variations of your favorite hue.
Both light and dark color schemes can be warmed up and made cozy with lots of textured bed linen, a great rug, and some throw cushions. Struggling to find a color palette that suits your sleep style? Here are eight on-trend bedroom color schemes we're loving right now.
Olive Green: Olive green is the new neutral in our eyes, as it goes with such a wide variety of colors. Keep it minimal with white or pair it with pink, navy, mustard, or other earthy colors to create a color scheme that works for you. Tip: Gold or brass accents pair perfectly with olive green.
Neutral Ground: Natural materials and green accents combine for a fresh, on-trend bedroom. The addition of palm leaves introduces a holiday-at-home vibe.
Pretty in Pink: A white canvas accented with a subdued pops of pink is the perfect palette for a teen or child's bedroom.
Coastal Tones: Whoever said "blue and green should never be seen" was wrong. The coastal color palette creates a peaceful haven and shows just how well blue and green can work together.
All-White: An all-white color scheme makes for a dreamy retreat. To nail the all-white interior trend, avoid making your bedroom feel sterile by incorporating plenty of texture and other neutral tones.
Ochre and Emerald: Earthy neutrals, soft pinks, and a rich emerald green throw combine to create a tranquil vibe. An all-white canvas allows you to easily switch up the color scheme as you please.
Mustard and Pink: The 70s are back. Earthy mustard tones paired with dusty pinks and a pop of orange create a warm and inviting space where we'd be happy to retreat.
Navy and Terracotta: Navy and terracotta is a match made in heaven. The navy blue offers up rich yet ultra-relaxing aesthetic, while terracotta accents inject warmth into a space.
