Bedrooms are private spaces that allow more flexibility than other rooms in regard to color, style and decor, making the decorating opportunities for these rooms almost endless.
Color is the most powerful tool you have for creating a mood, and everyone’s emotional response to color is different. When planning color schemes for this space, aim to create a warm, mood-enhancing look that whispers relax, take it easy, wind down.
Base your design thinking around colors, textures, fabrics and objects that make you feel calm, serene and secure. The bedroom is also the place for the things that are most dear to you—whether that’s art, photographs or personal mementos.
If you want your bedroom to evoke a certain mood, some colors have shown to be better at evoking certain emotions or moods. Calming colors are soft colors – blues, greens, and lavenders in a muted shade. Anything too vivid or bright will not be calming. If you are decorating to have a calming effect these colors go quite well together. You could punch it up a bit with some brighter accents in the same colors but with a different tone. I like a sage green for the walls with some light sky blues and lavenders sprinkled around the rooms Bedding, wall coverings and flooring can be a solid color to keep the calm mood going. Accent with candles and perhaps a table top waterfall.
