The bedroom is your sleeping sanctuary, a place full of serenity that should promote a soothing and tranquil atmosphere. A quick and affordable way to achieve a calm ambience in your room is through colour.

Never underestimate the power of colour, as it plays a key role on our emotion. This is especially important to consider when deciding the best bedroom colour for your sleep.

Step into the New Year feeling energised, rested and relaxed by colouring your bedroom in these top soothing colour schemes.

1. Green
Green is an excellent colour scheme for your bedroom. Because it has warm and cool elements, there are a variety of shades to choose from. Green can be seen in our parks, forests and gardens.

When applying the right shade, a green bedroom can create a natural and soothing sleeping space. It is recommended to avoid bright shades of green and instead opt for soft or deep shades. For the best bedroom vibes, match a green coloured bedroom with white, ivory or earthy toned sheets.

2. Pale Blue
Pale blue is hands down the best colour for sleep. Experts say blue slows the heart rate and reduce blood pressure, the perfect colour for a good night’s rest. To add warmth to a blue room, add yellow and to keep it cool add grey. If you’re not brave enough to paint your walls, try adding blue bedding instead. Say good bye to stress and hello to a peaceful night’s sleep.

Don’t be surprised to see grey on the list. Some may think this colour in the bedroom is dull and depressing, reminding you of a moody cloudy day. However, the right shade of grey can create a relaxing and calming ambiance. It’s a neutral colour making it perfect to match any colour palette.

Navy blue, teal or even a soft pink bedding paired with cool grey walls create an elegant colour scheme with the added bonus of extra zzz’s.
