These Bedroom Colors Are Your Gateway to a Better Night’s Sleep
“For a sexy or romantic bedroom, I like to stick with dark colors like olive, deep violet, navy (like Rich Navy from Glidden), or charcoal (like Cyberspace from Sherwin-Williams). For clients interested in calm, tranquil bedrooms, I’m quick to suggest a blue-gray, like Krypton from Sherwin-Williams, celery tones, or a layering of white paint with all white furniture and linens. Overall, since bedrooms are meant for relaxation, I try to stay away from high-energy colors like bright greens, deep reds, or bold, tropical hues.
“I love to keep the color of a bedroom simple, timeless and classic. By keeping things neutral- you avoid trends and then are able to have fun with the other items in the space, like the bedding, throw pillows, side tables and lamps. It’s then fun to be able to add in a pop of color to add interest and layers.”
