Looking to create a soothing atmosphere? For a tranquil, spa-like space, stick with soft neutrals with touches of warm browns and cool soothing blues.
Pastel shades can also help a small room feel larger and more airy. These colors are not just for nurseries or little girls' rooms.
Touches of a bright shade will turn your bedroom into a cheery space. Bright reds and oranges may not be the best colors for adults seeking a space to unwind, but bright colors can work well in children's rooms.
A children's bedroom is a great place to stray from traditional colors, so let your child use his or her creativity to create their perfect space.
For an artsy look, try painting a stripe or several on your walls. Stripes don’t have to be uniform or always vertical. A stripe can run horizontally or in a pattern.
If you’re feeling adventurous, add some depth to a wall by attaching wall molding in rectangular or square shapes before painting (see photo above). The wall molding adds a unique dimensional effect to your bedroom. For contrast, choose a different paint color for the molding.
