BEAUTIFUL COLOUR SCHEME IDEAS FOR YOUR BEDROOM
By Jennifer Chukwujekwe
I will be the first to admit that waking up early and leaving a cozy bed isn’t always fun, but creating a bedroom that’s energizing and mood-boosting can make it a whole lot easier.
Since colours and light affect our mood, there’s a strong case for a colourful bedroom.
Whether you introduce these pops of colour with paint, bedding, or artwork, you’ll find something to emulate in the examples below:
GREEN: Shade of green is fitting for the environment; it has a calming effect and relieves stress.
BLUE: A soothing soft blue feels like a breath of fresh air when you walk into a room. It lowers blood pressure.
PURPLE: Rich sophistication for darker purples. Relaxation for lighter purple.
PINK: Is associated with love and kindness. It also boosts creativity.
GREY: Brings comfort and warmth. Completely versatile. Timeless and classic in lighter shades.
YELLOW: It captures the joy of sunshine and it communicates happiness.
BRIGHT WHITE: Brings calming effects. Makes the room feel more open and spacious.
BLACK, as an edge: Best used in small doses as an accent. Grounds your colour scheme and gives depth.
The above colours should be soft and calmer shades.
COLOURS TO AVOID IN YOUR BEDROOM:
Orange is a bright colour of energy that directly contradicts the relaxing mood of your bedroom.
Pastel blue can become unpleasantly chilly on the walls, especially in a room that receives little natural light.
Red in brighter shades can be a bit too severe.
