We recently updated our master bedroom colors and I love how it turned out. Our home is an over one hundred years old farmhouse that we have begun remodeling over the past few years. The last project on the list was our bedroom. We converted the attic space into a livable room with tall lofty ceilings and an on suite bath. Deciding on the floorplan was easy, but we found picking out the bedroom colors to be very tough. We knew we wanted to stay within the period nature of the home, but with a modern twist. I used this antique area rug as inspiration for the decor, and the rest just followed. Sherwin Williams has a Colonial Revival collection of interior wall paint colors that replicates traditional shades found in historic landmark homes. We selected this beautiful moss green color that perfectly matches one of the hues in the area rug. I love the way that the deep color makes the off white trim of our media center, windows, and my vanity really standout. I would highly recommend their paint because it was easy to apply, came in a ton of great shades, and seems very durable.
So many of our clients get stumped when it comes to picking out bedroom wall colors. I actually think that this room is one of the simplest to narrow down paint schemes. There are two primary families of shades that we feel work best in the bedroom neutral tones or extremely deep tones. Not surprisingly, neutral shades are the perfect choice for bedroom colors because they can easily accommodate any decor style or accent theme. Not only that, but simple monochromatic schemes have a very calming and relaxing feel, exactly what you want for a bedroom. Alternatively, on the opposite end of the spectrum, deep dark shades are also a great option for the bedroom. This family of paint color ideas creates a dark cave-like feel perfect to encourage a long night of sleep. A deep navy or hunter green can create a fabulous design statement especially when accented with lighter colored linens. Either way, as long as you find the the paint shade you select beautiful and relaxing, it is the perfect shade for your bedroom.
Master bedroom paint colors are one of those decor elements that vary so widely from person to person. Some love bold hues that pop when you walk in the room and others prefer subtle shades that evoke a relaxing and stress free environment. The top bedroom colors 2022 fall somewhere in between those two extremes. We are seeing trends featuring rich neutral colors in darker shades than we have seen before. Think deep camel colors and rich taupes. I actually love this idea because it still allows you to remain within the neutral family but gives an interesting decorative focal pointwithout being too bold. These beautiful master bedroom colors are a great example of how to do this trend correctly. The homeowner chose a stunning khaki shade that makes the white trim and fireplace really pop. It is still subtle enough that it does not compete with the textile patterns or the artwork they chose to incorporate throughout the rest of the space. This is the perfect inspiration for ways to have fun with your paint colors.
To me, the best bedroom paint colors are ones that evoke relaxation or good memories. This is why we chose to paint our master bedroom in this fantastic ocean blue shade. Our favorite memories as a family are those spent at the beach, so we wanted to create a maritime themed space to unwind in after a long day. The first step was finding the perfect shade of blue. I browsed through dozens of bedroom colour ideas online before I found this fantastic shade by Benjamin Moore. I think it is the perfect mix between a bright bold color while still be subtle enough to not be overbearing while you are trying to fall asleep. Once we settled on the paint shade we were able to decide on the other bedroom colors for trim, furniture, fabrics, and carpet. We decided to keep the rest of the room fairly neutral and let the blue color be the star of the show. I chose a beautiful upholstered bed with coordinating armchair and then brought in that maritime theme through throw pillows and a lovely quilt. We absolutely love the finished look.
In my opinion, the best bedroom colors are ones like these that provide a very classy foundation to any decor style you wish to add. This rich khaki tone by Behr falls into the neutral family but has a little more behind it. The saturation of the color allows the white trim and gorgeous wood floors to standout, while still providing some design interest of its own. I love wall painting ideas that dont lock you in to one specific style or decor trend. The beauty of this shade, and others like it, is that you can completely change the look of the room by simply replacing linens, furniture or artwork. This gives you the freedom to redecorate as often as you would like, without the hassle of having to repaint the walls. If you want to add bedroom colors like this to your home, I would suggest gathering a bunch of swatches from the store and laying them out in your space. Surprisingly, this simple step can help you narrow down your choices much easier than at the store. Once you are in the room with the actual lighting, finishes and perhaps furniture, some shades will immediately standout as the right choice while others scream no.
Bedroom color schemes should set the mood for relaxation and a restful nights sleep. In my opinion, there is no better palette than soft neutrals or cozy blues. This beautiful guest suite is a fantastic example of this. The owners muted bedroom colors in a combination of monotone beiges and slate grey, are an unexpected pairing. However, the undertone of the shades coordinate well and together create a very soothing look. I love how the pops of grey in the sofa upholstery, quilt, throw pillow and artwork bring liveliness to the all beige foundation. The bedroom paint shades seem to run together and result in the perfect backdrop to the bolder design elements in the room. I think this look would be extremely simple to recreate at any budget. Most paint brands, from high end to low end, have a quintessential neutral shade like this one. Then, adding notes of a subtle accent color like this grey, could not be easier. Simply select your shade and find a handful of items that you can scatter throughout the room to develop the decor scheme.
