Modern wall colours for the bedroom

1. Almond green + Pastel Pink

The softness of almond green, also known as pastel green, is perfect for bedrooms. It calls for cocooning. It suits any room and is extraordinarily capable of sweeping away the monotony of plain colour. So, it could be perfect for brightening up a room that looks dull and plain from a colour point of view. Combine it with light pink for a trendy room. Pastel is very popular at the moment. We love it in all colours but pink offers the most softness and promises peaceful nights.

2. Variations of Purple

Combining different shades of purple is a very good idea. You can do it in different ways, but none of them will be boring. If you like bright, pastel colours, choose Lilac and its lighter versions. Such a combination looks great on a wall. 

Keep in mind that not all shades of purple are alike. If you are interested in intense bedroom colours, choose a very saturated purple. Do you prefer more delicate shades? Choose the aforementioned Lilac, a very popular colour in 2021, and a perfect choice for interior design. 

As far as purple is concerned, you can also choose darker room colours. This is a good solution if you don’t mind the room looking smaller or if your interior is really big.

8. Soft Black + White

Black? Oh yes! Far from the generally accepted idea, dark colours are not necessarily sad or oppressive. It’s all about moderation. Here the muted and soft black is a classic, for example. It can be muffled and can be combined with light tones like white without making the room smaller. A dark, intense colour in a bedroom is meant to be enveloping and allows for brighter shades to be added in small touches with objects and bed linen.

Do you prefer timeless, evergreen bedroom colours? Although many homeowners find such a solution rather boring, it really does make sense.

Plus, all you need to do is add a few accessories such as blankets, cushions or wall decorations to give your room a completely different look. Of course, it all depends on the base you create. When choosing neutral colours for a bedroom, you can combine them with natural materials. Wood is the best in this case.

Rich and Luxurious! It’s not for everyone to dare to paint the walls of the room gold leaf, but there’s no doubt that a bedroom in this colour is absolutely unique.

Colours to avoid:

While there are “sedative” colours, some are anxiety-provoking. Very bright yellow or green, for example. They should therefore be avoided in the bedroom, which is a real place of relaxation. 

Indeed, citrus colours higher than a safer degree such as beaming orange and yellow are to be avoided absolutely. 

Red is not really recommended. In some cases, it is a sign of passion. In a bedroom, it is an aggressive colour! But if you like red, treat yourself to a rug, a pair of curtains, your bed cover, etc. and use it sparingly. 

Bonus Tip:

Almost all Interior designing experts agree that if more than three different colours are used in the same space, the eye becomes saturated and sees only confusion. In short, it makes a mess, and three colours are really the right method to obtain a beautiful harmony, a little balance and above all character. 

You will also have to know how to dose: you don’t use each of the 3 colours in the same quantity, but proportionally:

  • a lot of one (often the most neutral)
  • a little of the second and
  • a touch of the third (usually the brightest and strongest)

Final Words

In the end, tastes and colours belong to everyone, and what some people like may not be to the liking of others. The best paint colour for your bedroom is the one that suits you the best. You can also take your colour exploration a step further by creating your own personal colour palette. After all, it’s your private sanctuary, and it deserves brilliant, rich, timeless colours.
