Any part of your home can be altered by color, subtle color or hue changes that add depth to the character or change the ambience.
Your bedroom, like any other area, can benefit from a color makeover that will refresh your decor and lift your mood.
Colorful bedrooms have a huge impact on your mood. Every day, as soon as you open your eyes, you see your bedroom surroundings. Every night before you go to sleep, the last thing you see is your bedroom walls. There is no doubt that color can affect the way you feel.
Some colors are associated with different emotions. Red is traditionally associated with energy, while green is said to be calming and relaxing, and yellow makes you optimistic. However, not everyone reacts in the same way to different hues. Hence, the most important thing is to choose a color that you like.
Bedroom color ideas
Bedroom color schemes are a great way to express your feelings. You should choose a shade that reflects the mood you want to experience, be it the cool calm of neutral hues or the vibrant energy of bright colors.
Contrasting blue and white tones have a wonderfully calming and relaxing effect and create a wonderful nautical theme. Striped wall covering with white bedding and a cozy blue throw is the perfect complement to this theme.
Perhaps you can alternate white and blue pillows and pillows on your bed, or experiment with different textures and fabrics for accessories and linens in pure white tones to give your room a seaside feel.
Optimize your room with natural materials. Choose a bed frame or headboard made of walnut, beech or birch and complete the look with floors or carpets made of sisal or woven fabric. Natural colored bed linen works well in this environment in the colors taupe, beige and white.
Or why not create a glamorous and opulent boudoir? Shades of gray and silver add a touch of grandeur when expressed through velvet and satin for curtains and bedspreads. Twin with luxurious pewter accessories, reflective mirrored furniture, carpets with a rich texture and stylish glass chandeliers.
The use of bold, bright colors is very popular right now. Go for an eye-catching shade like pink or bright green when choosing a color for a wall or bed linen, or even combine two hot colors for an energetic touch.
Make mood boards
Be inspired by the world around you. Watch the colors work well in combination on advertising, packaging, and even in nature. Home decor and clothing stores are the perfect place to see color choices that work well together. Why not bring a little of the excitement of travel and the fun of the vacation spirit into your room by using your vacation as a source of inspiration?
Think of the energies, colors and spirit of the places you have visited. Use photos, postcards, souvenirs, and pictures in books to get a feel for the country of your choice. Whether you are inspired by the ceramics, the mosaics, the textiles or the architecture of the places you have seen, you can use the atmosphere captured in this time and place to inform your mood board.
Gather pieces of fabric, pictures from magazines, and paint patterns you like and put them together in a mood board that blends colors and styles. You can see if shades are working well and experience the effect they create.
Theory of color
A color wheel is the perfect starting point for developing the best color combinations. For a boost of energy, pick colors from opposite sides of the wheel to give your space a lively feel. Painting your walls one color and choosing accessories from the opposite side of the wheel is a great way to take advantage of this vibrant style.
Different color schemes create different effects and not necessarily what you would expect.
Chocolate brown, gray, and teal – you might think these dark hues can make your room look smaller and more oppressive. However, the ambience is often more moody and sensual.
Mustard, gray, creams and black – a unique and interesting combination of colors. This versatile scheme can be used in striped or circular patterns.
Purple, Gray, and Cream – Pick different shades of purple, including lilac, violet, plum, and lavender to ring the changes.
Purple and mustard – a brilliant and bold scheme that is perfect for accessories such as carpets and pillows. Kids rooms look great in these colors.
White and Indigo – Setting accents of light indigo against white walls is an unusual but attractive choice. If you want a more expressive room, paint your walls alternatively in indigo tones and with white accessories.
Black and white – a timeless classic. These two colors have been combined forever and continue to work wonderfully together.
Yellow-lime with black and white – the combination of traditional black and white with the unusual shade of yellow-lime creates a sophisticated look that is comparable to the art deco trend.
Brown and dark gray – although these colors are both dark, they can be lightened with the right selection of decorative linen and wall ornaments.
Black and white with yellow and gray – choose two of these colors to combine in your decor, or go for all four. Any combination works great.
Make sure your color scheme is cohesive
For the best effect in your room, make sure that all furniture is coordinated. Paint mismatched elements so that they work well together and choose two or three key colors that will be the focus of your color scheme. Make your focal point a single painting or decoration to bring the theme together.
Use the background color of your focal point as a shadow to paint your walls. You can then go for a medium shade when choosing large pieces of furniture, adding a touch of lighter tones to your accessories and small furniture like lamps and vases.
Choosing a color scheme that will add a peaceful feel to your bedroom is key to a good night’s sleep. You spend a lot of time in your bed so you need to make sure you have made good choices. However, make sure that the color scheme of your bedroom goes well with the tone of your entire home so that your home feels really coordinated throughout.
