We all want our bedroom to feel cosy and inviting; a place we can relax, unwind and drift off restfully. Colour has a big impact on how a space feels, so it’s important to get it right when decorating a bedroom. Mood boosting shades are best left for busier spaces such as the kitchen and lounge. Here, you want hues that are serene, peaceful and calming.
But this doesn’t mean that your bedroom has to be boring and only painted in pale and neutral tones. For relaxing bedroom ideas there are plenty of colours that are soothing and tranquil. Purple, for instance, is a really great choice for a bedroom thanks to its cool, calming blue undertones, while also having cosy, cocooning red tones. In Ann and Kevin’s bedroom (below), in this week’s episode of Changing Rooms on Channel 4, Micaela used purple shades Acai Berry and Deep Aubergine with neutral Nutmeg White, bold Indigo Shade and Golden Sands for a twist; it feels so sumptuous but also wonderfully restful.
