5 Completely Relaxing Bedroom Colours

We spend around a third of our life asleep, so having somewhere that is comfortable and relaxing is extremely important for getting a good night’s sleep. Your bedroom colours can make a huge difference to the ‘feel’ of the room. Yellow is supposed to induce positivity, whilst red is the colour of passion! If you want to wind down quickly en-route to a good slumber, then try a scheme using calming pastels and more neutral colours on walls and furnishings in your bedroom.

Here we have five completely relaxing bedroom colours for decoration inspiration!

1. Soft Grey & Flowers

Soft grey paired with the white woodwork and ceiling here makes for a contemporary feel. The painted tree brings a touch of nature to the room and the lampshade injects crinkled quirkiness.

2. Subtle Hues

This neutral is actually a white – Old White by Farrow & Ball. The contrast against the white lampshades and coving makes the subtle green hues on the walls more noticeable. Use of this neutral makes the room less stark and adds a cosiness accentuated by the soft brown furnishings.

3. Aquamarine and Blue

Lie back and feel instant bliss as the aquamarine walls make you feel calm and relaxed. The white ceiling and furnishings bounce the light around the room to keep things bright.
