Spring is finally here and it’s the perfect time to upgrade your bedroom.
If you’re looking for trending bedroom interior design colours for 2023, you’ve come to the right place! Let’s look at some colour palettes being used by leading designers this year…
Avocado is back
Some of you might be old enough to remember the 80s trend for the avocado bathroom? Well, fear not! Avocado (or Willow Green) has made a comeback as an interior colour, but thankfully, it’s being used mainly on bedroom walls and furniture instead of bathroom suites.
According to Country Living magazine, data analysis shows the phrase ‘green bedrooms’ is resulting in 4,000 Google searches per month! Green symbolises nature, harmony and balance, so many designers think this is why it’s trending as a popular bedroom colour.
Pair your green walls with a washed-out blue hue. Pale blue works well as an accent colour for deep greens. You could use a cool spectrum of blues, swapping the green as the accent colour. In this instance, you could add a luxurious touch with a stylish green velvet ottoman.
Some experts say that a blue bedroom can help to lower your blood pressure, due to the highly sensitive way the retina reacts to the colour blue. Blue has always been connected to tranquillity and a sense of calm, making this an ideal bedroom colour for relaxation.
Pink spring blossom
With a nod back to the natural theme, pink is a colour that appears in nature so there’s no wonder it’s being included with the green bedroom trend. But how can you use this effectively? The answer is sparingly such as a pink flower in a pattern or an object.
You could choose to add a pop of pink with a stylish and affordable linen accent chair and footstool. If you’re looking for space-saving ideas, then a pink velvet storage stool can double up as a seat for a dressing table. Pink bedroom furniture will offset green shades and blue hues beautifully.
The moody blues
This is an interesting colour being used in bedroom designs this year. Navy blue has been a popular interior colour for living room feature walls and hallways for some time. But we’re now seeing navy walls in the latest bedroom décor schemes.
Dark blues create a night sky effect in your bedroom, especially if you focus on feature lighting for extra ambience. This shade can be easily offset with white or patterned bed linen. Too dark? Switch your colour scheme around with white walls and a navy blue velvet bench.
Greys and neutrals
Grey was all the rage a few years ago, when every show home was drenched from carpet to ceiling. Well, we’re not seeing such a dramatic return of this shade! More accurately, it’s being used in furnishings and patterned wallcoverings, often combined with blues and ochres. A grey velvet storage stool is a practical yet stylish way to hide away clutter.
Some designers are taking the grey trend one stage further by introducing black to the bedroom. This will take some careful planning as too much black could create an Addams Family vibe (unless this is what you want!). But a black feature wall is a great background for splashes of colour, artwork, photos and shelves of well-curated objects.
Cream and beigeDon’t underestimate these colours! Subtle yet warming, cream and beige tones will reflect the sunlight and give your bedroom a comforting glow. Ideal for north-facing bedrooms, a cream or beige colour scheme provides a blank canvas for your other furnishings.
When it comes to choosing your bedroom furniture, a soft, creamy colour palette will work perfectly with a variety of occasional chairs. You can either make a statement with a bold accent chair or create a reading corner with a compact linen recliner in beige.
Your bedroom is your sanctuary, so it’s important to get the colour scheme right. And it doesn’t have to cost a lot to refresh a tired-looking bedroom. Repaint a wall, upcycle an old bedroom chest or why not add a new occasional chair to enhance your bedroom décor scheme?
