Colour Lookbook: Colour Inspiration to Create a Self-Care Sanctuary at Home

If you’re spending most of your time at home at the moment, you need somewhere you can escape to. A space that’s free from the distractions and stresses of daily life. That might be a bedroom sanctuary or a home office hideaway.

Wherever you go to find your zen, our range of soothing colours can help you create a space that’s perfect for practising some all-important self-care. 


Feel good with Brave GroundTM

Of all the calming bedroom colours in this article, we have to talk about Brave GroundTM first. Not just because it’s our Colour of the Year for 2021, but because it has the ability to create a relaxed and balanced bedroom sanctuary. It’s a warm, earthy tone that connects us back to nature and the simple things. It can help you switch off and enjoy a restful night’s sleep, the essentials for self-care.

Choose blue for a serene bedroom 

Representing the sky and sea, blues are a natural choice for a bedroom sanctuary. Blues are soothing colours. They can have a great effect on your mind and body. Blues can help calm your thoughts, slow down your heart rate, lower your blood pressure and reduce anxiety. There’s plenty for you to choose from, whether you’re after a costal feel or a cosy, cocoon effect. We chose Denim Drift, with a modern accent of Blush Pink, for this restful retreat.

Create a calming home office

Is your bedroom doubling up as your home office? Turn it into a dedicated self care sanctuary, too. WFH gives you the opportunity to make your desk area as calm and comfy as you like. Personal photos and plants are easy ways to put a smile on your face. Why not go one step further and pick up a paint brush?

For some quality me-time, create a corner with a geometric feature like the below. Simply use three complementary colours like , calming colours like White Mist, Mint Macaroon, Warm Pewter and Urban Obsession to create an office zone.

Try a hint of pink

Self-care is also about recharging your batteries. Having a space that stirs your creativity and allows you to take time for yourself is important, too. For a bedroom sanctuary, choose soothing colours that will cheer you up. A pop of Pressed Petal against Natural Hessian is guaranteed to lift your mood. And like we’ve already mentioned, you can instantly improve your wellbeing with indoor plants by your side.
