The best colors for bedrooms tend to combine smart and bright tones that give energy to the room with discreet neutrals that give cheerful shape to the backdrop. They definitely transcend ephemeral trends and manage to stay relevant throughout seasons and styles with ease. Whether it’s the adaptive blue at its brightest or the gray that has managed to take over the world over the past decade, here’s something for everyone to fall in love with.

Serenity of blue

As a rule, when in doubt, opt for blue! That’s something we tend to firmly believe in and it’s a rudimentary decorating principle that has never failed us. Blue as a color fits perfectly with a wide range of styles and even in the smallest rooms, its presence is always welcome. It’s a color that blends well with both white and gray and you can explore many different shades of blue, from navy and deep blue to more fun and modern ones like turquoise and teal.

Warm and charming yellow

Unlike blue, yellow is a color that is used much less in bedrooms and yet deserves much more attention. It is simply perfect for bedrooms with styles such as Mediterranean, traditional, rustic and cortijo. Yellow in its softer shades can be used more widely in the large, modern bedroom, while brighter touches of yellow work well as accents. Easily adapts to other eye-catching colors, yellow is an excellent choice in the adaptable bedroom.

Greys and Neutrals

The bedroom in neutral is one that we all love and found the most comfortable and easy to work with from a design and decoration perspective. And leading this package of neutrals is gray at its best. Grey has been the trendiest neutral in the city for more than two decades and what started as a trend has now become an era-defining feature. Combine gray with colors such as blue, yellow and green to create a more vibrant and contemporary bedroom, at once serene and elegant.

Green at its best

Green in the bedroom is used much less often than blue and yellow, and yet it has an instant impact as soon as it is added to the mix. The best bedrooms in green are those that use their lighter tones for the background and in spaces with traditional and rustic themes. It is a color that invites you to sleep in the bedroom and shapes a more relaxing background. According to Feng shui, it is also a color that increases fertility in space and also gives way to freshness at the same time.
