Color is one of the simplest methods to create a peaceful, comfortable, and intimate/romantic atmosphere in the bedroom. Here, we’ll look at a few colors that can help you sleep and relax better by bringing a tranquil quality to your bedroom because color theory brings about a lot of changes in room appearance. 

Cooler tones, such as grey, blue, green, and purple, can help create a peaceful mood in your bedroom. These hues have been proved to alleviate anxiety and stress. They may also make a room appear larger, making them an excellent choice if your bedroom is on the smaller side.

Dark Grey-blue color

Of course, relaxing does not have to imply monotony. Dark grey-blue is one of the best colors for bedroom walls. It’s dramatic, but it also has a calm, cold, and collected feel to it. If you’re worried about using such a dark color in your room, consider using a huge piece of artwork or a beautiful headboard to break it up.

Inject plenty of white items and possibly go for a traditional bright white ceiling to assist bounce light around a space with dark grey-blue walls. Warm-hued materials like wood and natural fibers like sisal, seagrass, and jute are one of the finest ways to warm up a cool color palette.

Soft grey 

Soft grey is a lighter alternative. Rooms with all-white walls and ceilings might feel chilly and stark at times. You can still achieve a light and bright area by tinting one or the other grey, but the slight contrast between the grey and the white gives it a more polished and less institutional look.

This room looks like it belongs in a high-end hotel. The soft grey wall serves as an excellent backdrop for the heavier grey accents. Despite the abundance of chilly colors, this area does not feel impersonal.

Blue ice 

Look to nature for color inspiration if you’re looking for soothing and relaxing colors. The color of the sky on a fresh, clear day is one of these hues. This is one of the best bedroom colors for people who want something brighter than grey but don’t want to go too dark. To avoid a pastel baby blue that’s more appropriate for a nursery, look for a light blue with just a tinge of grey.

Because of its grey undertones, icy blue may be used as a neutral in your palette, allowing you to match it with nearly any other color. If you want to create a relaxing atmosphere in your home, pair it with other neutrals like chocolate brown, warm greys, and taupes, as illustrated below.

Soft neutral green

Sage, celery, or a faint pistachio color come to mind. These are also natural colors, and being surrounded by them inside your home can give you a sense of calm and satisfaction. What we like about these greens is that even if you only use a smidgeon of color, it still seems grounded and beautiful, not pastel. The key is to select a green with a good amount of grey in it.

This soft neutral green has cooler undertones than the preceding one, which has warm undertones. With medium to dark woods, both look fantastic.


This isn’t your typical purple bedroom for a teenager. A master bedroom with a subtle lavender wall color is a stylish choice. Purple is supposed to be a stress-relieving color, so this exceptionally soft one is sure to relax you. However, because it’s a frigid color, consider how you may offset it with warm wood floors or a warm-hued carpet.

Combine lavender with dark greys and blacks for a sophisticated look. It also works well with silver tones.
