In general, muted colors work best for your bedroom walls. Light blues, soft greens and shades of white, beige and gray are some of the best choices.
If you're looking to have even more fun with your abode, give one of the 2022 Colors of the Year a try. Benjamin Moore chose October Mist, a soft sage; Sherwin-Williams also selected a subdued green, Evergreen Fog; on the other hand, Pantone decided to go bold with Very Peri, a lively periwinkle color.
The 2023 color of the year is a blend of gray and beige with subtle red undertones that pair well with today's trending earth-tone paint colors. Rustic Greige wraps a room in warmth, making it perfect for kitchens, bedrooms, and family spaces alike.
What will replace it, they predicted – and also Benjamin Moore's colour of the year for 2022 – is a light, silvery green. Or, as they called it: greeneige.
Leading paint companies Benjamin Moore, PPG, and Sherwin-Williams all agree: 2022 is the year for gray-green. The sophisticated hue symbolizes balance and harmony often seen in the natural world.
Light blues such as Bright SkiesTM – Dulux Colour of the Year 2022 – opens up rooms, creates a sense of space and an upbeat and positive feel. On the other end of the spectrum, dark, moody blues like Sapphire Salute and Teal Tension are cosy and cocooning.
For the first time in Pantone's history, the global color authority dreamt up a brand-new shade for its 2022 color of the year selection. Dubbed Very Peri (Pantone 17-3938), the dynamic periwinkle blue boasts a warm violet-red undertone and signals novelty in these, yes still, unprecedented times.
Shades like Blue 01, Blue 02, and Blue 13 are perfect for a soothing bedroom and can help you sleep better”. Darker shades tend to be more stimulating, so if you're set on going dark she recommends Blue 17. This grounded, muted blue will help you feel relaxed and supported, without being overstimulating.
In keeping with the trend of bringing the outdoors inside, in 2022, we'll see a focus on natural materials like burl, rattan, cane, leather, jute, wicker, ceramics, and woven lighting, furniture, and decor.
53 percent of experts surveyed think that sage green is the most popular color of 2022, not just for living rooms but also for other parts of the house.
Pantone's Color of the Year, Viva Magenta 18-1750, vibrates with vim and vigor. It is a shade rooted in nature descending from the red family and expressive of a new signal of strength.
Like I mentioned, warm toned neutrals are the it neutral this year, and designers are favoring beige, ivory, and taupe over cool gray and stark white.
Sherwin-Williams selected the subtly soothing Evergreen Fog SW 9130 as its color of the year 2022.
The colour we're talking about is GREEN. Not acidic chartreuse or the blue-y shades of jade or mint, but a much softer, earthier green that, to be honest, isn't a world away from what we've been accustomed to with the grey palette.
The consensus is that grey is out and warm neutrals will continue to dominate in 2023. “The color trends have gone from all white to warm neutrals, and in 2023 we will be warming up those neutrals even more,” says Brooke Moore, Interior Designer at Freemodel.
It's not just a rumor, it's true. Beige is back. This warm neutral, which ranges from sandy cream tones, to bone colors, to nearly tan shades is replacing cooler gray as the versatile neutral of the moment.
Pantone: Viva Magenta
Go bold in the new year with Viva Magenta, Pantone's 2023 Color of the Year. The crimson hue is inspired by the red of cochineal, one of the strongest and brightest dyes in the world.
Avoid bright blue, greens, pinks, oranges, and yellows and instead opt for muted pastel versions of the color, as these will work to encourage sleep. Easy rule of thumb: the brighter the hue the worst for sleep, the softer the hue the better a calming bedroom paint idea.
The most calming spectrum of colors the neutral category, like tan or beige. If you have a busy mind or stressful schedule, choose neutral walls for a relaxing night's sleep. Because neutrals can become a little too muted, tie in a complementary accent color like sea green, gray or soft mint.
