10 POPULAR COLOR CHOICES FOR BEDROOMS INTERIORS

Ever since wallpaper started to come back as a trend to stay (in my opinion), this is the one question I get asked a lot! : Is wallpaper a Must for creating an updated look for the master bedroom? And the answer is “Not necessarily”.

A great bedroom interior is created by a mix of different elements like: scale, height, shape of furnishings, artwork, textures, patterns and of course Color. And by color I don’t mean painting the entire room in one bold color, but rather knowing where and how much color to insert in order to add interest and yet a create a restful and calming space where you can relax and unwind- after all the bedroom is the space that we spend the most time in when at home (unless you work from home). Master bedroom should be your personal heaven…some go for a dramatic look some go for subtle color choices, it is a personal preference…



Discover which style is closer to your personal design style:


1. nautical theme, masculine, high contrasts, excellent for pristine white bedding lovers…

Design idea: different patterns & textures- same navy color; metallic accents coordinated in accessories; white bedding, decorative pillows- same color different textures.





2. soft grey and calming blue hues, appeals to retro design lovers, white and blue/gray color schemes always bring a fresh look…

Design idea: same blue/gray tone used throughout, here it is not about the color but about the pattern and the overall calming tones yet striking wallpaper pattern.


3. white and neutral tones- always a winner especially when paired with sleek furniture, layers of white and soft sandy tones create the look…

Design idea: classic elegant armchairs act as and accent in the background; wood & upholstery mixed in the headboard design; window treatments consistent in design and color with the bedding and all fabrics used throuhgout.


4. feminine, elegant, sophisticated, soft neutral colors, texture and patterns add a romantic flair to the room, wall trim- classic approach for a timeless design…

Design idea: Various tones of white and off white, pearl finish classic floral pattern of the wallpaper, crushed velvet drapery- it's all in the textures!


5. are pastel colors your first choice for bedroom colors? Blend the color of your choice with lots of different patterns and textures on white backgrounds…

Design idea: white on white with yellow accents used consistently. Black see thru linen lamp shades and headboard dark wood frame pull all elements together.


6. green tea hues create a blissful and always refreshing space…

Design idea: create a Zen calming space with classic and contemporary elements. bedding ads a punch of white & olive contrasting patterns on decorative pillows. Curtains color matches the wall for a tone on tone look.







7. vertical wide stripes bring in the drama! Could be wallpaper or paint, upholstered headboard and footboard bed style softens the linear design of the wall and white creates a wonderful contrast…

Design idea: background acts as a focal point while the bed becomes the jewel in the room.


8. yes! Dark charcoal colors create a dramatic look when contrasting with white bedding, artwork and accessories…

Design idea: add rhythm and contrasting elements when working with dark walls as a background.


9. red used in contemporary designs can be soothing or highly energizing- it all depends on the right red tones…

Design idea: black and white can be paired with any paint color- this design works well with dark blue, dark greens and many other dark colors.


10. This could be a small bedroom space but big drama!- vivid dreams, intensity of colors, contrasts, textures and shapes of traditional pieces mixed with an asymmetric design approach…

Design idea: when you know which fabrics, textures and colors go well together just add fun in the mix and it will be a winning design!
