Red, orange and yellow are certainly the colors that make room bright and pleasant and give warm feeling to it. But it’s not a good idea to use dark or bright shades of these hues – that’ll make room looking too overwhelming. Light or pale shades give a romantic mood to your bedroom and also help you to relax. Do not use warm hues in a case of small bedroom – they make the space appear smaller.
Green and blue are vice versa ideal for small bedrooms as they make them appear larger. These colors make rooms look peaceful, inviting and airy – the last fact is especially useful in a hot weather or climate. Avoid dark or deeply saturated shades as they make a small room appear busy and cramped.
However, there’s an idea about crisp and bright shades of green – choose any shade that is presented in the yard, or you can see at the window of your bedroom. This will create sense that the room continues past the windows. Keep your interior in natural style, use shades like brown, terracotta and cream for accents.
One of the finest bedroom wall colors is a shade of blue called deep Mediterranean blue. Use the shade for walls, molding, carpets, fabrics and other items – as the main color or as part of a pattern. This way you will unify the space which will seem to have no end or beginning. Walls will get less attention of the viewer and appear to be farther. The ceiling should be kept white.
Muted colors that are hues with the low brightness can make your bedroom look cozy and calm as they give a soothing and cool effect to the room. E. g., earth tones (muted tones of brown, beige, yellow and orange, especially light shades of sand or beige) are very popular and widely used in craftsman, bungalow and modern architecture. If you choose it you may be sure that your husband or grandma will like it, as most of people find these shades pleasant and suitable for bedroom.
White and off-white
These shades can bring light and visually enlarge the room, but pure white can make room appear too sterile. Ivory, light gray, cream and pearl are popular bedroom wall colors to make the room look cozier. Use textured fabrics and natural elements to make the bedroom look deeper without deviating your color scheme. Another way to add interest to the interior is to insert pops of any bright hue. Green is especially suitable for it: green pillows, potted plants, green prints on the wall can be a good accent.
White ceiling is the thing that creates illusion of greater height – and that’s the reason why it is popular ceiling color.
