True colors of life! Choosing the right hues for the bedroom-walls can be a painstaking job. Most men would frantically protest to sleeping in a pink bedroom and most women will never accept a ‘color-suggestion’ if you don’t make it sound like one. But don’t worry, ‘coz there has to be a palette which would blend your choices and bring harmony to the topic. If not, opt for logic.
Choose a favorite object, something that adds verve to the room, like a photo frame, or an oriental rug, maybe a bed-spread or a piece of antique. You could use any of these items as a basis for your color scheme. For example, a gold and burgundy oriental rug could be the perfect excuse for coloring the walls with a shade of gold and accessorizing the room with burgundy-colored items. And if you are daring enough, paint the wall behind the bed, with a shade of burgundy to accentuate the room further.
Color psychology also plays a vital role when deciding the right hues for the bedroom. For example, light shades of blue and green, lavender and off-whites have a calming effect. It acts as a tranquilizer, comforting and unrestrained, trusting and inspiring. While pink is quixotic, affectionate, empathetic and fragile, lavender is imaginary and nostalgic. Combining the two creates a comforting and romantic feel. You can also change it with blue-purple hues or red-purples. Bright red’s connotations include stimulating, sexy, ardent, provocative, impressive, mesmeric, assertive, spontaneous, adventurous and emotive.
