Popular Bedroom Colours

For an easy-going vibe in the bedroom, many gravitate toward cooler colours such as pale blues and greens. In this video, airy Instinct AF-575 and restorative Anjou Pear AF-425 fulfill that quest for comfort and calm. As part of the Affinity Colour Collection, both of these colours seamlessly mix and match with any one of the 144 colours in that collection–a great resource for colour combinations in your bedroom.

There are also a broad range of neutrals and off whites that can create an equally tranquil space for the bedroom. Always popular paint colours Chantilly Lace OC-65 and Silver Fox 2108-50, both bring a polished, elegant mood to the bedroom. Refreshing and soft, Mellow Pink 2094-70 creates a haven of peace with light gray accents and crisp white textiles. And if you are interested in setting a rich, yet intimate vibe, deep navy Mysterious AF-565 delivers.

Mood Makers

colour has the power to change not only the look of a room, but also the ambiance. Do you need a boost to wake up or a cocoon to encourage relaxation? Before you decide on the best paint colour for your bedroom, consider these basic facts: Warm colours add energy; cool hues create a more calming atmosphere. Saturated colour will wrap you in a cozy environment, while pale shades conjure an airier feel.

Foolproof Paint Picks

When selecting paint colours for the bedroom take your cues from the fabrics used on bedding and window treatments. If you’re overwhelmed by colour choices, try pulling a hue from a favorite fabric for a wall colour that helps you achieve your design goals.

Quiet It Down

When selecting colours that will help you unwind, neutrals are a natural choice. But they need not be boring! Creamy whites, soft grays and warm umber hues can be used to create a quiet backdrop for colourful furnishings—perfect for those who like to switch up fabrics or accessories often.

The Fifth Wall

When it comes to paint decorating, the ceiling is often overlooked. While classic white is a perennial favourite, an unexpected colour on the ceiling enhances the room's character. Given that this is your own personal space, consider getting a bit more creative with colour on your bedroom ceiling, as seen here in Concord Ivory HC-12.

Should you opt for a lighter paint colour on your ceiling, you'll enjoy an airy effect that can visually raise the ceiling. This is a great way to make the room look larger and taller, especially in a small room or a room with a lower ceiling. Simply paint the ceiling with a lighter shade, or a slight variation, of the wall colour. Watch our how-to video for tips on painting a ceiling.
