Soft Grey

A subtle and soft colour such as lighter shades of grey can create a very calming presence for a room. You don’t want to go overboard with this colour however as it could an undesired effect of being too depressing or dramatic. Add a small splash of brighter colour, such as a yellow or turquoise with small decorations such as pillows, to ensure this bedroom colour scheme has the perfect balance of tranquil and uplifting ambiance.


Not only does the actual flower hold relaxing and calming qualities, this perfect shade of purple manages to bring a fresh clean presence whilst promoting a soothing atmosphere as a bedroom colour scheme. Although some shades of deeper purple could be considered too intense, purple is known to be a stress-reducing shade so will contribute to an overall cool and calm feeling.

Sage Green

A great choice for bedroom colour schemes, green has both warm and cool elements to it providing a good balance for your sleeping environment. There are so many shades to choose from but sticking to pale, soft and barely-there hues mix perfectly with a neutral room. Bringing the colour of nature into your bedroom can work to create sentiments of harmony and ease.

Powder Pink

Pink can be considered a bold statement colour, however choosing the right shade, of any colour actually, could contribute to creating calming bedroom colour schemes. Try pastel, powder and rose pink for example. Powder pink is very nearly neutral so it simply adds a hint of gracefulness to the room with its cooler undertones. To make sure the colour is not over bearing perhaps use it as a feature colour with a feature wall or items around the room.

Deep Blue

Although rather vibrant, this shade of blue is very tranquil and works well to evoke deep calming vibes and feelings of wisdom. As it still is a bold colour incorporate it with contrasting neutral colours such as off white to make sure it is not overwhelming and to create the perfect calming bedroom colour scheme. Similar to the pink shades, perhaps incorporate the colour as a feature piece for the room.

Your bedroom should be a place of sanctuary, somewhere for you to wind down and get a good night’s rest after the stresses of your day. Known to reduce anxiety and stress whilst promoting relaxation and serenity these beautiful calming bedroom colour schemes could make the ultimate difference to the ambience of your room and be your ticket to a peaceful dreamland.
