Benjamin Moore’s Wellness Colour Palette: Cultivate Serenity in Your Home

Whether you want to paint a meditation space, spruce up your favorite reading nook, or simply breathe some Zen into your home, prioritize relaxation and self-care with our curated palette of colours for wellness.

Paint colour has the power to affect our well-being and promote relaxation, and it can help us manage stress and find inner peace and tranquillity. Although everyone has their own unique reaction to colour, there are easy ways to determine the best colour scheme for your individual wellness journey and mindset.

Cheerful Front Door Colours for a Friendly Welcome

When it comes to choosing colours that set a tone of health and wellness throughout your home, start at the beginning. The front door, although a relatively small area, makes a huge first impression. To extend a genial welcome to family and friends, use a happy hue like Sunny Days 172, which has a touch of marigold undertone for year-round cheer.

Whether you choose a warm or cool hue, an eye-catching front door colour ushers visitors into your home. Here are some other bright, wellness-inspiring paint colours we love for front doors:

Meditation Space Ideas & Colours for Wellness

When bringing wellness colours into your home, think about the hues that make you feel calm. Blue is one of nature’s neutrals and a globally favoured hue thanks to its soothing properties. A popular choice for relaxing bedrooms, blue paint colours can help you reset and reenergize—two important parts of self-care.

Soft gray-blues, like Smoke 2122-40, Intuition CSP-610, and Colorado Gray 2136-50, shown here, are perfect for any space where you want a mindful atmosphere.

Kitchen Colours for Health & Wellness

What better space to anchor your wellness colour palette than the kitchen? Whites, neutrals, and reds have long been classic kitchen choices, but if you want a colour scheme that bridges the gap between soft and saturated, we have a suggestion for you: pink!

No longer relegated to the nursery or powder room, soft pink paint colours bring a gentle, playful side to any space and offer boundless versatility in rooms that are essential to your health and wellness. Some of our favourite peaceful and nurturing pinks:

Calming Paint Colours for Bedrooms

When it comes to bedroom paint colours, you may find that a more saturated hue is too bold for rest and relaxation. Instead, use a deeper hue on an accent wall and paint the rest of the room in your favourite neutral. Whether you choose a taupe, greige, or light brown, neutral hues are gentle and inviting, ideal for deep sleep, long mornings, and quick naps.

With its hint of warmth, Stone Hearth CC-490, shown here, can bring surprising depth and texture to a space. We also love these neutral colours for wellness:

Colours You’ll Love for Self-Care Spaces

No matter where you take a few minutes to reflect during the day, find equilibrium in your self-care space with a complementary colour scheme that helps to promote wellness. Whether it’s a meditation room or a home gym, play with pale and pastel tones that sit across from each other on the colour wheel to create a peaceful, calming vibe. A few colour combinations we love: In transitional spaces like hallways, entrances, and stairwells, a nature-inspired hue can bring in a touch of the outdoors and serve as a calming interlude as you move from room to room. Balance the look with lighter décor and trim for a peaceful contrast, or opt for more saturated, earthy colours for cohesion.

Relaxing Paint Colours for Mindfulness

Universally beloved for their ability to immediately calm a space, white paint colours remain some of Benjamin Moore’s most popular hues. With undertones that span the rainbow, white paint colours can be used to create a hygge-like atmosphere that lets your personality shine through. Go with timeless neutrals for a minimalist design style, or lean into a more contemporary look with a soft touch of colour.
