Do you ever feel overwhelmed when trying to decorate your home? Sometimes it’s hard to know where to start when there are so many interior design options to explore. What most people don’t realize is that one of the easiest ways to find your voice as a decorator is to start with a colour scheme. Here are three bedroom colour schemes to make your home sparkle!
When thinking about bedroom colour ideas, it is best to start off with a larger theme to guide you. Think about how you want your bedroom to look and feel. What kind of story do you want it to tell? Do you want it to remind you of a certain time or place? The next step is to pick out three colours that you associate with this idea. Here are some decorating ideas and corresponding colour schemes to help get you started.
The serenity of the sea can be brought right to your bedroom by using three simple colours! Red, white and blue. We highly recommend Benjamin Moore paint for fabulous deep colour appearances. But, it doesn’t have to be as simple as painting the walls these colours. You can add texture and depth by painting stripes on one wall or painting your entire bedroom white and incorporating the other colours into the room with accessories and textiles. Consider nautical themed drapes and bedding to capture the spirit of the sea.
2. Contemporary Warmth
This is a popular interior design theme meant to make you feel warm and at home. It is a classic yet understated theme that usually uses neutral and earth tones. These colours tend to be warmer in nature and this gives off a familiar feeling of comfort. Bedroom paint colours such as warm taupes, chocolate browns, forest greens and beiges evoke the feel of a cozy space that you will love. Avoid overusing beige by mixing different shades of one colour. Some decorating ideas include painting three walls one shade and the wall which frames the bed a darker or lighter shade of the same colour. This will add depth and contrast. Why not add small pops of bright or deep colours here and there to break up the monotony. This can be done with furniture, pillows, rugs or small accessories. Mixing textures and tones will surely bring out that contemporary warm feel that is so comforting to have in a bedroom.
3. Expressive Exotic
Beautiful jewel tones such as emerald green, ruby red and gold work great as bedroom paint colours. They will surely add a vibrant and regal feel to your bedroom. Though some people are intimidated, this is a surprisingly versatile colour palette to work with. Deep sapphire blues and academic purples an evoke a classic antique charm. Mixing some gold touches in with your decorating ideas can modernize it and give it a playful feel. Warm ambers tones will subdue deeper and darker colours by bringing in some warm earth tones.
Hopefully these decorating ideas have inspired you to choose interesting bedroom colour schemes to make your home come alive!
