24 August, 2020
With these color schemes, you can create a relaxing and stylish bedroom that's perfect for getting a great night's sleep.

Bedrooms are spaces where you can switch off from the outside world, places of peace and harmony, where you can reconnect with yourself. As such, it’s important to think carefully about how you’re going to decorate, taking the time to choose the right furniture and color palette. In this article, we’re going to show you 5 relaxing color schemes for your bedroom.

The color combo you choose for your walls, furniture, and textiles is crucial when it comes to creating the bedroom of your dreams. Today, we’ll give you some practical ideas so that you can get your bedroom just the way you want it.

Color schemes for your bedroom – blue and yellow

When it comes to bedrooms, blue and yellow is a classic combination. Mustard yellow is ideal if you’re looking to create a cheerful, bohemian feel.

By now, you probably already know that blue is the color when it comes to creating peaceful and relaxing spaces. It’s stylish and confident – not to mention that Classic Blue is the Pantone Institute’s color of the year.

Yellow, on the other hand, is closely associated with happiness, wealth, and strength. However, we recommend that you don’t overdo it when it comes to yellow. In large doses, it can bring a little too much energy to a room.

You can incorporate splashes of mustard throughout your space, using elements like these embroidered cushions from Maisons du Monde. The combination of gray and white is perfect here, providing a neutral base, and bringing balance to your look.

Bedroom decor – pink, blue, and lilac

Color schemes for your bedroom: pink, blue and lilac.

If you want to give your bedroom a feminine feel, look no further than this pink, lilac, and blue color combo. You can use lilac as the dominant tone, using the blues and pinks to add bursts of joy to your room.

This color scheme is ideal for creating a bright and cheerful bedroom. It’s also perfect for recreating that warm and welcoming Provencal style and will allow you to play around with all different kinds of bedding. To complete the look, you could also incorporate some matching floral wallpaper.

Remember, while pink is a sweet, delicate, and feminine color, lilac is elegant, mysterious, nostalgic, and spiritual. Together, they complement each other perfectly.

Color schemes for your bedroom – beige, gray, and black

If you’re looking for an elegant color scheme for your bedroom, then this is the option for you. As well as working well with almost any decorative style, this color scheme is timeless and understated. If you want, you can also use different textures to create a more interesting result.

This can be done with different materials or a combination of different textiles. Play around with matte or gloss elements, choosing items with real character and charm. Wainscoting can also be a good idea. Alternatively, you could also look for a beautiful lacquered dressing table, giving you the perfect place to get ready for those big nights out.

Purple, yellow, and gray

Relaxing color schemes for your bedroom: purple, yellow and gray.

We love this bold look, which combines a range of contrasting colors. If you’re going to pull it off, you need to choose which color you want to take center stage in your bedroom. If you choose yellow, for example, you need to use a contrasting color to decorate the walls (which in this case would be purple).

Gray, on the other hand, is perfect for creating a light and harmonious look. You can find a range of bedding at IKEA, ideal for any sophisticated and modern bedroom.

Blue, gray and lavender

Once again, this bedroom color combo puts blue to good use, making the most of its relaxing properties. This time, however, we advise using a less vibrant tone. While these are all cool colors, they blend perfectly, helping you to create a cozy atmosphere using a mixture of classical tones.

Choose fabrics that will help to create a sense of warmth. In this case, we recommend using natural fibers that complement the overall look and help to maintain balance. Linen, cotton, and wool work well.

With these color schemes, you’ll be able to create the perfect look for your bedroom. Remember to think about the balance of the colors. Ideally, 60% of your room should be decorated in your main color, 30% in a secondary shade, and 10% in a third color, used to add accents and highlights.

If you enjoy experimenting with different color combos, think carefully about how they might influence the mood. Be sure to take this into account when using them to decorate your home – especially when it comes to bedrooms.
