18 Charming & Calming Colors for Bedrooms

In picking the color palette we want for the bedroom, or any room in the house for that matter, we usually go with two things – our gut or our favorite color and then what your designer wants.

It sometimes turn into a bit of a catfight at times because you know that your designer means well, but you want to get you want since you will be the one using the room.

But of course, designers always go for what the client wants; no matter how wrong our choices may be.

And that is why, for today, we will be showing you a list of 18 Charming & Calming Colors for Bedrooms.

This will tell you more about what are the best colors to pick when you want to make sure that your bedroom will calm and relax you, rather than get you waken up early in the morning with pain in your head.

So, sit back and relax, enjoy the ride.

light gray wall

Not a fan of dark walls? Looking for something softer and lighter? It’s OK, you can still go grey.

You will find that grey is one of the few hues that’s pleasing no matter how light or dark you go.

Even the lightest shades will never read as pastel or thin and one-note. This super-soft grey adds a layer of color and contrast to this soothing bedroom.

Toronto Traditional Bedroom

“Choosing pinks can be a bit tricky,” says Heron. “I tend to move towards taupe with a hint of pink like Benjamin Moore’s Melted Ice Cream (as seen in the previous image).

As a rule of thumb, I always go two shades lighter on a paint deck.

Pink usually reads 20 percent brighter once on the wall. This is according to the designer herself.


This is one list we really love, because, not only are we able to see how stunning neutrals are – we get to enjoy more the pastel colors that sometimes are ignored because we want to pick the loudest color there is to catch the attention of we-do-not-know-who!

The 18 Charming & Calming Colors for Bedrooms is one list we hope you can visit and check once in a while when deciding to change that wall color you have in the bedroom!
