What colors of paint should I use to create a tranquil bedroom?

If you want to create a sense of tranquility in your bedroom, think about monochromatic color schemes, where tints and shades of a single color are used to create a stylish room with a sense of calm.

Quiet tones of linen, ecru and cream create a space that is soothing and restful -- just perfect for this charming bedroom. Textural interest keeps tonal bedroom paint color schemes from becoming boring. Scenic prints, quilted bedding, and an interesting mix of accessories that include painted metal and sparkling glass add visual richness while maintaining the bedroom's calming feel.



To complement the monochromatic bedroom color ideas, use a mix of warm, natural wood tones found in the floor and cabinetry to balance out the painted headboard and nightstand, giving the room's delicate color palette visual depth. An elegantly patterned rug in a mix of soft neutral hues dotted with deep, rich burgundy adds both texture and pattern to the room, and works as a grounding element to the space's delicate accessories and wall colors.
