Your bedroom might be the most important room in your home. It’s the sanctuary where you can relax and unwind at the end of the day, and the place where you can reconnect with your significant other or just a good book! Choosing the right color paint for your bedroom is essential in getting the look and feel you want for your space. While some people recommend using only certain colors in bedrooms, we feel that you should choose a color that you love — even if it’s a bit outside of the norm. Browse through the following colors and see if any of them resonate with you. 

Soft Black

Yes, black is an intimidating color, but when used right it can add drama to any room! Black complements almost any color. If painting with black is a little out of your comfort zone, try different tones of black or paint just one accent wall. Accent walls are a fun focal point and will add elevation to any space.


Khaki Green

Green is always calm and soothing. Khaki green is a perfect choice for your bedroom if you want to bring some life into your space without an overly dramatic effect.

Light Grey

Grey is a great backdrop for a peaceful, balanced feel. You can add curtains and other accessories in almost any color, since grey goes with almost anything.

Want to add warmth to your space? You can never go wrong with cream colors. However, choosing the right cream can be tricky, so here are some things to keep in mind: 

● The color of cream will look different depending on the lighting of your room. Think about how much natural light you have and how open your space is. Try painting swatches in different areas of your room to see how the light affects the color of each space. 

● Some cream colors can have a pink or orange under hue. Are those undertones you like, or would you prefer whiter creams?

Bright White

If  you’re looking for an elegant feel, white is the way to go. White can create the illusion of open space, so it’s perfect for smaller bedrooms. Consider a mix of 90% white with 10% of another color to add an extra pop.

Steel Blue

Blue is a popular choice for bedrooms, and steel blue will take your room over the top while still maintaining a sense of serenity. Pair it with gold or silver metallic accessories for a rich, lavish look, or use a combination of steel blue and white to add dimension. 

Sage Green

The best pairing for sage green is natural light! Natural light will bring out the cool of the green and add a fresh finish. While going with a solid coat of sage is a great choice, try a sponge effect to give your bedroom an earthy feel. Or paint one wall as an accent to add a unique backdrop to your room.
