8 Soothing Bedroom Paint Colors
Chaotic modern lives mean that most of us aren’t getting enough rest, so choosing a tranquil color scheme for your bedroom can really help turn it into a place to relax and unwind. But soothing colors don’t have to be boring. While classic neutrals are easy picks, don’t fear embracing stylish muted colors either.
One of the easiest ways to transform a space is with color. Walls are the largest canvas to work with in a home, and a quick coat of paint can completely change the atmosphere of a room. Even more importantly, colors can change our emotions and state of mind.
These eight colors are our sure-fire picks for making your everyday bedroom feel like a serene spa retreat.
Grey is the new beige. Neutral and relaxing to the eye, a warm grey tone is the perfect contrast to crisp white linens. It also won’t clash with your furniture, which means if you’re on a budget, it’s a great choice since you won’t have to replace your existing pieces.
A quiet, muted aqua is the perfect choice if you want a relaxing seaside atmosphere. Pair with farmhouse-chic white furniture and natural linens for a true beach-house vibe.
You can’t go wrong with this color. It’s just blue enough to not be boring, but neutral enough that it pairs well with plenty of styles.For a stately, classic style, pair with crisp white trim and dark-stained furniture. Or go for a relaxed, contemporary vibe and choose earthy natural wood furniture and sandy beige accessories.
Sage is trending fast this year. But unlike some questionable fads of the past (hello, shoulderpads), this shade is popular because it’s great. Versatile and serene, this is a great pick to add a hint of warm color to your space.
Icy mint is light, bright and airy. Pale enough to not be overwhelming, this shade will give you that ‘day at the spa’ feeling like nothing else. For a chic, modern look, pair with charcoal grey accessories.
This dark, muted plum will surround you like a warm embrace without smothering your eye with color. If you’re more into hygge than bright and airy, this is the perfect pigment for you. If you have a smaller space and want to limit darker colors, try applying it to a single accent wall with a lighter grey finishing out the rest of the space.
This creamy off-white is the warm not-beige you’ve been searching for. It’s almost yellow but not quite, not too vibrant but warm enough to create a welcome, relaxing room.
A bolder kind of neutral, charcoal provides a darker, more atmospheric feeling. But while it can be a backdrop for bold and modern pops of color, it can just as easily be a soothing break for your eye. It’s the perfect way to add a little edge while still relaxing your eye.
