If you are thinking of repainting your master bedroom, give enough thought to selecting the paint colours as you spend roughly 1/3 of your day here.
Here are some tips to consider before you pick up a paintbrush.
Select a colour which relaxes you and envelopes you rather than stops you in your tracks because of its boldness or brightness.
From furniture and accessories to the wall colour, create a space that gives you a sense of calm. Stay away from high energy colours such as bright reds and oranges.
Your bedroom should reflect your personality or your decorating style (or both), but there are a few things to keep in mind. Rather than painting the entire bedroom a bright, bold colour, select a feature wall to bring in the colour you desire. You can also introduce bold colours through soft furnishings such as pillows, curtains, or even a piece of accent furniture.
We often suggest that you paint the wall behind the headboard a bold or deep highlight colour and paint the remaining walls a lighter, complementing colour.
Add interest and depth to your overall decor in the master bedroom by layering colours. Like we said above, paint walls a neutral colour and then layer in colours through other means such as artwork, bed linen, curtains, an armchair or a loveseat. Spurts of colour add layers as well as texture.
Make sure the colours coordinate. For more contrast, pick colours that are opposite on the colour wheel. For a calming effect, choose colours alongside each other on the colour wheel.
