Your bedroom is your own sanctum of privacy. It is the place where you unwind after a long day at work and hence should reflect your mood and personality.
Having a beautifully done up bedroom to come home to, can rejuvenate your spirits, especially when you share cosy moments with your family.
Choosing the right colours for your bedroom walls can make all the difference. Not everyone relates to colours in the same way so the best bet is to find the right colours, which leave a positive impact on both you and your family.
The Best Bedroom Color Schemes
Choosing the right bedroom colours can be an arduous task especially when you do not know where to begin. For starters, make use of your experiences as a traveller.
If you are well travelled, you can take snippets of wall colour and architecture from the various towns and cities you have visited. You can also delve and seek inspiration from home magazines and catalogues which give you trendsetting colour palettes for your bedroom.
The Colour Wheel
All paint catalogues have the colour wheel in which complementary colours are directly opposite to each other. These colours look great together and bring out the best mood in you.
One way of achieving this harmony is to use one of the complimentary colours as a wall background and use the other colour as an accent wall or as a trimming on a clock or a bedpost. That way your room looks vivacious and pretty. The colours of blue and green look good together.
Red when used seductively creates a refreshing aura in your bedroom. Red is a sunny colour though and should be used sparingly. Too much of red would make your bedroom look garish. Yellows look great especially in shades of lemon and honey especially if you have brilliant woodwork in your bedroom.
How To Create Cohesiveness in Your Bedroom?
Just using colours off the chart serves no purpose. The idea is to blend in all the colours within the room to form a cohesive scheme. For instance, if you have chosen a lemon yellow for your walls, choose dark wood for your furniture and a lighter tone of brown for your curtains and bed linen.
A bright vivacious yellow will complete your look especially when used on the vases or the lamps. This will give your bedroom a unique colour scheme.
The Retro Look
If your tastes border on the bold, use a bold colour scheme. Paint your walls grey, with one accent wall painted in a bright violet. Keep our bed linen a mish-mash of psychedelic colours like modern prints and checks to create a vibrant and modern hue. This is also a trendsetting bedroom colour scheme.
If you have drawn inspiration from Moroccan catalogues, overhaul your bedpost and cover it with a brilliant throw embellished in morocco designs and patterns. This will be the main focal point of your room. The remainder of the room should look minimalistic.
Fuchsia Pink and White
If you have a teenage daughter, give her room a feminine touch by doing it up in fuchsia pink and white for subtle splendour. Paint the walls in white and use striking, fuchsia pink bed linen. You can use scintillating curtains in shades of white and pink as a final finishing touch.
Whatever colour scheme you use, make sure that they reflect your personality and should create the right mood. Bad bedroom decor can mar the look and feel of your home.
