Choosing a colour scheme for your bedroom is an important part of interior design that’s sometimes slightly overlooked. When we are revamping our homes, we tend to focus on our kitchen and bathroom that our guests will mostly see, whether we are hosting a dinner party or having friends to stay for the weekend. This is a shame because our bedrooms are our own personal space and a sanctuary for us to unwind after a hard day’s work. This season there’s much focus on earthly tones and minimalist decor; taking a cue from eco-friendly interior design and the ever popular ‘less is more look.’ Minimalistic designs can leave your house resembling a show home so you won’t want to miss out on the trend! Let’s dive in with a few colour scheme ideas to get you feeling current and your room looking lovely.
Chartreuse green is an excellent colour for the bedroom, if used sparingly. This earthy colour is somewhere between green and yellow and looks terrific when paired with shades of browns and creams. In your bedroom, unless you have lots of space, you won’t want to go for too bold a colour as this will make the room appear smaller. This shade of green is perfect for layering a few different neutral colours. Also, if you’re a lover of plants, these colour schemes will match excellently with a money plant or some bamboo.
Shades of teal
Opting for shades of teal can be the perfect idea in the bedroom to create a calming and relaxed energy. Teal is symbolic of the sky and the sea as well as being associated with clarity of thought. These shades can look beautiful when paired with whites, browns, and wooden objects too. Again, teal can become an intense colour if you use too much of it, the best thing to do is try a statement wall, a few cushions or a teal rug for your bedroom. If you’re adding a piece of artwork, you could try going for something that depicts an ocean scene to keep with the theme or even add a few decorative shells and stones.
Shades of coffee are another excellent way to create an earthy and organic look this season. These shades are best put with beiges, creams, whites, and wood. You’ll want to look out for sustainably sourced wood and eco-friendly paint to do your bit for the environment while making your room look gorgeous. Why not add a shabby-chic woolen throw in beige to complete this natural colour scheme just right. You could also try some brightly coloured decorative flowers for a splash of colour amongst the neutral tones.
Sometimes, disagreements can arise between spouses when it comes to bedroom colour schemes! Yet, with these neutral and earthy vibes, there’s something for everyone, and you should find a look that pleases you both. Don’t forget to go through your bedroom before you start redecorating and throw away anything that you don’t need. You’ll want everything to look organised before you add any paint or accessories.
