Soft purple colors are considered to have the ability to be stress-reducing, and this lavender is both cool and sophisticated. It is perfect for a master bedroom. You can counter the cool nature of the paint color with warmer colors on your floors, head board, and accents.
Darker colors can provide a cozy ambiance in a bedroom. And they need not make a small room seem smaller. Break up the grey with lighter colors in artwork. furniture, and flooring. This is both a sophisticated and romantic color scheme, and can help provide a peaceful, calm feeling. If you prefer a bit more light in your bedroom, use a pale, soft grey on the walls and complimentary colors in pillows, accents and bed linens.
Nature inspires with this color. Think of a cool autumn day with a crisp blue sky. This is a very relaxing way to make your bedroom your sanctuary. Counter the cool feeling of the blue with warm accent colors in pillows and cushions, and bed covers. A warm area rug or other floor covering will also be a compliment to the blue walls.
A soft green hue with a touch a grey is also nature-inspired. Bring the outside in with a pistachio, or sage green, and use other colors of nature in accents and bed linens. This is a warmer option than the cooler colors mentioned above, but is still clean, fresh, and relaxing.
Bedrooms are the most sacred room in the house. They should offer you a chance to shed the activities of the day, to find some solace, and soothe your soul. The colors you use in your bedroom should enhance this and promote peace.
