Bring the Outdoors to Your Bedroom with Natural Tones

Bedroom with Earth Tone ColoursAfter a long day’s work or a tiring time running errands and doing chores, you look forward to retiring to your bedroom for a power nap, to read a book, or to just plain let go of tension and get a good night’s sleep. The bedroom is your escape from the busy world. The colours that surround you there should promote complete restfulness as you drift off, and help bring a calm start to the day when you wake up in the morning.

An experienced Vancouver painter will tell you that one of the most important elements to make your bedroom exude a feeling of complete relaxation and serenity is the colour scheme that’s chosen to paint the walls. Certain colours incite particular moods in people, whether they are soothing and comforting shades, or palettes that excite and stimulate the mind.

A Vancouver Painter Puts You in the Know

Some of the newest trends in bedroom paint colours are the more natural tones. These include shades of tan, gray, green, blue and white. This is the simplest and best way to bring the freshness of the ocean, the silence of the rain forest and the expanse of blue skies into the room without unnecessary clutter in your décor. Colours found in nature are generally gentler on the eyes, and help to promote a safe and worry-free atmosphere.

An excellent Vancouver painter can help you learn how to mix and match the natural shades and tones into a cohesive and attractive colour palette for your home’s bedrooms, then do the job quickly and expertly, so you can enjoy the tranquility of your surroundings that much sooner.

Colour Tips to Help Plan that Dreamy Bedroom:

Paint Cans with Colours1. Use neutral colours. Using neutral colours doesn’t mean that you have to be confined to shades of white and off white. Even darker shades of gray and neutral sandy or taupe shades may work well in your bedroom space and be very soothing to the eyes. These kinds of solid earth tones promote a sedate and soothing mood.

2. Splash around with blues and greens. These colors bring the calming seas and the freshness of forest trees into your bedroom. Concentrate on the more natural shades of green and blue. Neutral olive green shades bring a restful feeling to most people. You can even mix soft browns with greens to get that extra earthy natural look, or explore a truly delicate aquamarine.

3. Use relaxing shades of blue. Go big with blues to bring that relaxing sense of the outdoors into your bedroom. Blue is always a restful shade that combines wonderfully with white trim and wispy curtains. Bring that seaside feel into your bedroom with delicate blue shades, and accent with beach sand tones.
