Colors play a powerful role in creating a relaxing and cozy bedroom. Not limiting to just bedroom walls, you can also use different color combinations in bedding, flooring, and furnishings. Let us share with you some general guidelines for choosing the best colors to create a room that feels cozy and calm.
Cozy:A room that is cozy gives you a warm and welcoming feeling, one that you would want to spend your weekends laze and snuggle in. The way to create that feeling is with the warm side of the spectrum, mainly like browns, yellows, oranges and red, basically earth like tones but soft, warm and slightly muted. These colors tend to be mid-tone or darker so as to create the comfortable and cozy feeling.
Calm:To create a calm, tranquil ambience in your bedroom, we are generally looking at the cool side of the spectrum such as gray, blue or green from dark shades to pastel tints. Consider the peaceful feeling when looking over the ocean or the clouds before the rain starts falling. These colors are low-key and delicate without any sort of edginess which allows you to easily relax and quietened down after a busy day.
