If you were thinking of upgrading your living space, you were probably putting it off until the sun is out and the temperatures are high. Well, summer is just around the corner now and if redecorating your home is on your bucket list, it’s time to start moving.
Looking for inspiration? Here are the trendiest colors this year, all beautiful shades you can use in your bedroom for a more relaxing and soothing experience — without sacrificing glam in favor of comfort.
Lavender is many people’s favorite shade of purple, and for good reasons — that go beyond the color itself and back to the flower whose name it carries. The lavender flower itself is known to have soothing properties and even the smell is believed to have the power to de-stress you.
Introducing lavender to your bedroom as the main color can prove to be the right choice for creating your personal haven.
Lavender is not a strong color – it is quite soothing and muted, meaning that you can combine it with other colors easily. Still, the best color to combine it with is white since it will make the room appear much brighter and bigger.
Green is another color known to help people relax, which is why it can be the perfect addition to your bedroom. Painting the entire room or just one wall in pastel green is a good idea, however, a lot of people are afraid that it might not be the right choice for them.
If you are not sure that pastel green is the right color choice for your bedroom, you can add hints of green through different decor items such as picture frames, cushions and even beddings. A trendy bedding set with pastel green elements can light up your bedroom.
Soft grey is the perfect color if you want to keep the walls toned down yet experiment with the decoration. This shade pairs well with colorful decorations so if you want to introduce bright or even neon colors, this is the right shade to go for.
Soft grey goes well with pastel colors like pastel pink, pastel blue, orange tones or even the pastel green we previously spoke about. You can combine the pastel green elements with soft grey walls and turn your bedroom into a soothing oasis.
If you have ever crossed the doors of a medical institution, you might have noticed that the walls are normally painted in a light blue shade. This shade is believed to have an impact on reducing the heath rate and even blood pressure.
Still, this shade is a bit tricky to use so you need to make sure you use the right hue.
Choosing pastel blue might make your bedroom look like a nursery which will have a completely negative effect than what you are trying to achieve, but if you get a little creative and choose the right elements, this color can create a unique relaxing space.
Dark blue can bring a sense of lavishness and luxury to your bedroom. This deep color pairs well with light tones such as white or pale pink.
Don’t be afraid that using this hue will make your bedroom feel smaller. As long as the ceiling and the other elements such as your bedding, stools or cushions are in light colors, your bedroom will look high-end.
Deep blue also pairs well with dark wood so if your floors match this description, then this might be the right color for you. Also, golden details can add an additional touch of elegance if you want to take your bedroom to the next level.
Choosing the right colors can make your bedroom go from average to spectacular. These shades are in trend this season, so if renovations are on your mind make sure to take them into consideration. Before you make your final decision, simply take note of the colors of your furniture because that can point you in the right direction.
