Be it adaptable blue at its brilliant best or gray that has managed to take over the world in the last decade, here is something for everyone to fall in love with –

Serenity of Blue

As a rule, when in doubt go for blue! That is something we tend to firmly believe in and it is a rudimentary decorating principle that has never let us down. Blue as a color fits in with a wide range of styles seamlessly and even in the tiniest of bedrooms, its presence is always welcome. It is a color that combines well with both white and gray and you explore many different shades of blue from deep and navy blue to more fun-filled and trendy ones like turquoise and teal.

Warm and Charming Yellow

Unlike blue, yellow is a color that is far less commonly used in bedrooms and yet one deserves much more attention. It is just perfect for bedrooms with styles like Mediterranean, traditional, rustic and farmhouse. Yellow in its more mellow shades can be used more extensively in the large modern bedroom while brighter and more brilliant splashes of yellow work well as accents. Easily sitting well with other bold colors, yellow is a great choice in the adaptable bedroom.

And leading this pack of neutrals is gray at its diverse best. Gray has been the hottest neutral in town for over two decades now and what started as a trend has now become an era-defining feature.

Green at its Gorgeous Best

Green in the bedroom is far-less frequently used than blue and yellow and yet makes an instant impact as soon as it is added to the mix. Best bedrooms in green are those that use its lighter shades for the backdrop and in spaces with traditional and rustic themes. It is a color that encourages sleep in the bedroom and shapes a more calming backdrop. According to Feng shui, it is also a color that ups fertility in the space and also ushers in freshness at the same time.

Remember to avoid colors that are far too bright in the bedroom and are over-stimulating. Also, stay away from grays that are deep and dark and take away from brightness in the room. Find a balance between harmony and energy in your bedroom.
