The choice is yours—you’re going to have to choose the right combinations yourself and put together a few ideas to help get you started in exploring your many options.

Since we have many years experience painting bedrooms, we’ve decided to put together a simple list of the popular colour combinations you can peruse before painting your bedroom. Of course letting them help you choose combinations is important too.

Peach and Pink Combos

Peach and pink are two shades that go together exceptionally well. The combination of these two colours is known to be one of the most popular colour combinations for bedrooms because it adds such a nice warmth to the room without being too overwhelming. Peach and pink combos also pair well with other shades like light salmon, baby blue and mauve.

If you’re thinking about painting your bedroom or living room with this colour scheme but aren’t sure how to incorporate it into your decorating style, consider these tips:

  • Consider adding peach accents throughout the room instead of painting an entire wall in deep tones—this will create a more subtle effect that’s easier on the eyes while still bringing out a youthful vibe in the space.

Blue and Orange Get-togethers

Blue and orange are truly complementary colours which means they sit opposite each other on the colour wheel. Blue is a cool colour, while orange is warmer. When you use these two colours together in a room, they can create a serene atmosphere and at the same time a room that’s fun and adventurous. The blue tone will help keep things calm and peaceful, while the orange gives the room vibrancy.

  • You can use both of these tones to create romantic vibes in your bedroom by pairing them with light browns and creams.

Lavender and Deep Purple Mixes

Lavender and deep purple make for a great colour mix-up. This colour scheme is perfect for bedrooms, bathrooms, or any other room that you want to create a calm and relaxing atmosphere. Purple is a great colour to help you sleep better at night by helping your body relax while lavender has been shown to have calming effects on people who suffer from anxiety.

  • The darker versions of these two colours create more depth in your space without making it feel too dark or overwhelming.

Black, White and Grey Mergers

Black grey whiteBlack, white and grey are neutral colours and almost everyone enjoys them. They can be combined with a lot of other colours to create varying visual effects and moods.

Black, white and grey do add a modern look to your rooms and they create a sophisticated and minimalist effect. You’ll see this combination in many new houses and condominiums or houses for sale, and it appears to be the new trend when it comes to the colours new homes are painted in.

  • You can also add in a few warmer tones like chocolate brown, taupe and sand.

Red and Grey Medleys

Red and grey is a great colour combination for a bedroom. Red is a warm colour so it will make the room feel cozy, while grey is a cooler neutral colour that can keep the space still feeling light and spacious.

  • Consider using an orangey-red or an oxblood tone with your grey walls. You can also go more subtle and choose a light pink or dusty rose hue instead.

Some General Rules for Colour Choices

  • Experiment with warm colours for small rooms and cooler colours for larger rooms.

Warm colours include red, orange, yellow and cool colours are blue, green and purple. You should also avoid using more than three colours in a room because it can make the space feel smaller than it actually is and look quite noisy.

The Take Home

The bedroom is a great place to experiment with colour combos. The bedroom is the place where you should be able to relax and recharge, so don’t rush in to choose a set of colours—get all the help you can through some research and take the advice from your painter.
