Reader Question: What Colors Can I Use in My Small Bedroom?

Spruce up your personal space with these vibrant yet soothing color choices

Shares

Q: I’m thinking of redesigning my bedroom—approximately 3.5”x3”— to suit my needs and wants as a multimedia arts student. I want it to look spacious and refreshing to the eyes. What color combinations would you suggest? I don’t really have favorite colors, but I prefer vibrant colors over dark ones. — Sophia Bathan, Taguig City

A: There are different views on which color sparks creativity—most say blue, others say red. I would suggest using colors that are soothing to the eyes since it is a bedroom.

The following are bright enough to spark creativity, but are not too vibrant that they might keep you up at night:

1.            Turquoise Bay A37-4 (blue) and Wheat Ridge D19-4 (beige)

2.            Rossland A38-4 (blue) and Silent White E39 (white)

3.            Timeless B41-3 (blue) and Latte Light D19-1 (cream)

4.            My Fair Lady C4-4 (purple) and Birch Park D22-1 (off white)
