3 Winning Color Combos for the Bedroom

You won't look at your bedroom in the same, boring way again


A bedroom is a sanctuary. Whether you stay in it just to sleep or you do various activities in it like indulge in TV marathons, it is a personal space. But just because it's a private space doesn't mean that you should just "let it go" or allow it to lag behind in the style department.

Interior designer Kimi Manuel suggests three different color palettes to make your room stylish, so you'll look forward to it not only when you're sleepy but when you simply want to hang out alone or with friends.

White with accent pastel colors of light pink or coral or powder blue

"This color combination is suitable not only for young users of a bedroom but also for adults who prefer a feminine aesthetic. White can give a sense of space and cleanliness and the accent pastel colors, if distributed across the room just right, bring a cheerful, harmonious effect."

Paint Swatches: Iced Mauve, Morning Breeze, Tulle White, all from Boysen Paints 

White and gray

"White and gray are neutral and can have a calming effect because of their simplicity. The gray shade you choose may also border on having a tinge of blue, but veer away from gray appearing purple and greenish. Gray is versatile and works well in light applications, mid-tone, or even in a dramatic dark gray."

Paint Swatches: White Concrete, Fondness, Millenium Gray, all from Nippon Paint 

Cameo blue as accent wall, with other walls painted white

"The blue and green hues exude tranquility. Depending on the application and other elements in the bedroom, cameo blue can appear serious and serene, or light and playful." 

Paint Swatches: Royal Blue, Winter Day, both from Davies Paints

*Ed's note: Paint swatches may vary from the actual color swatches. Visit hardware stores and home depots near you to see the actual swatches.
