Check out these ideas to help you achieve eight hours of slumber:

Bluish gray

Gray softened by a hint of blue creates a calming ambiance without being too dark or moody. For a bit of contrast and character, complement it with white moldings. 


Butter yellow

This soft shade creates a homey vibe, but since it’s mixed with white, it does not stimulate the senses as much as bright canary does. This paint color can also be used in a kid's room until she reaches her teens.

Tiffany blue

This is a soothing blue tint that can also look lively (and lovely!) in the daytime. The best part? It’s a girly hue that’s still gender-neutral to more masculine spaces.

Oyster white

If you want an all-white bedroom that’s not too glaring in the morning, try oyster or cream. It’s basically a beige with a splash of gray, and it goes with both neutral or neon accessories.


Sage green

Sage or almost-mint green hues are popular because they add color to a space without making it look overdone—it’s a plus that they make sleeping spaces feel soothing, too. Avoid going for deeper shades of green to avoid a muddy vibe.
