1. Forest Green
Forest green provides a calming feel for all bedroom types. The slightly dark green is great to pair with off white and light wood color. The wood colors can be incorporated as the floor, main furniture items, and curtains. Perfect for a well-lit bedroom.
2. Pale Beige or Cream
Pale beige and cream became popular bedroom paint colors thanks to minimalist lifestyle trend. The pale beige or cream is soft, soothing, and perfect for all designs. However, they are not as boring as regular white.
The “lavender blue” or periwinkle is a great alternative of lilac and blue. The color leans slightly to the blue side, but still has a light lavender tone. Perfect to pair with pale orange.
4. Zesty Orange
Despite being a bright color, orange is great to energize your mind. It also has positive energy, but not as “stressful” as red. Neutral grey or pale green are perfect to balance the orange. Choosing the muted version of the orange (or sticking with matte paint) is a great way to reduce the overwhelming brilliance.
5. Dusty Blush Pink
Lilac or millennial pink is no longer popular bedroom paint colors. The trends have shifted to the paler, more neutral versions, such as dusty blush pink. The shade is elegant, but not as bold as the trendier color, thus more timeless.
6. Clay and Terracotta
“Earth” colors such as clay and terracotta provide warm feeling in a bedroom. The colors are great with pale green, white, or cream. These earth colors may lean to reddish or greyish brown, which you can choose depending on your taste.
7. Misty Blue
Misty colors offer the paler versions of original colors. Misty blue, for example, has a blue undertone that leans to “foggy grey” color. It creates a relaxing and cooling atmosphere in the bedroom. Misty blue is great to pair with bright accent colors, like dark green, orange, or red.
Turquoise is one of those timeless bedroom paint colors that can be fun or relaxing. It looks great with soft, neutral shades or bright accents. Using matte paint will subdue the turquoise shade, perfect for a relaxing bedroom.
9. White “Shades”
White is a classic. Using several white “shades” is the modern way to adorn bedroom. People who love white but don’t want to look boring can use different “almost-white” tones to decorate a bedroom. They are modern, but still easy on the eyes.
10. Muted Purple
Rich purple is an experimental color for many people. Using muted purple is a great choice if you feel self-conscious about using this color. The muted version provides a softer atmosphere even with the rich basic shade.
11. Wood Colors
Woods provide diverse but still-relaxing atmosphere as bedroom paint colors. Instead of regular brown, wood colors mimic the actual shades of ash, oak, teak, and pine logs. They look fresh without being overwhelming.
12. Muted Yellow
Infuse bright color into the bedroom by adding muted yellow. “Safer” than actual yellow, the muted version infuses brightness, but still comfortable for the eyes.
13. Deep Cherry Red
Red is a good shade for a more energizing look in a bedroom. Deep cherry provides energizing look without overwhelming the eye. Muted red can become the background for a well-lit room, combined with beige or cream.
