Understand The Colour Psychology
We all know that every colour signifies a distinct set of qualities. While some colours speak valiance, others spread tranquility. According to their properties, there are three main colour groups – warm, cool, and neutral.
Warm colours are hues and tints of yellows, oranges, and reds. These colours exhibit liveliness and are spiritful. This colour palette is definitely eye-catching and vibrant.
Cool colours comprise darker shades of greens and blues. These colours ooze a sense of serenity and coziness in the environment. You tend to feel more relaxed using this colour palette.
Browns and greys form the basis of a neutral colour palette. These colours are more laid-back and subtle, bringing out sophistication and elegance.
So, understanding colour psychology is a hugely crucial factor in deciding our colour palette.
Pro Tip: always opt for a combination of either colour group, like pairing beige and green or grey and blue. The result is sensational!

Consider Your Bedroom Space & Aesthetics
A bedroom space plays a significant role when considering a colour scheme.
Choosing a dark colour palette for a small space will make your bedroom look compact and stuffed. On the contrary, choosing a diluted colour palette for a huge spacious room will give out an empty feeling.
Instead, switch your options. Going for a subtle or vivid colour palette when you own a boxy bedroom will highlight the features and provide a wholesome look. And opting for cool dusky colours for an enormous bedroom will make you feel snuggly.
Similarly, we need to work according to the height of your bedroom. While textures work best for non-height or double-height walls, plain pastels suit regular walls.
Apart from the space, ponder upon the aesthetics of your bedroom. Where and how would you want your bed placement? Do you prefer a study table? How would you like your TV unit? Are you into more storage, or do you favor a trimmed-simple style? What kind of lighting would you prefer?
Once we picture an idea, choosing a colour palette becomes a lot easier!
The Ultimate Design Rule : 60-30-10
The ultimate design rule works wonders in deciding the colour palette for your bedroom. This rule divides your bedroom space with respect to percentages, which simplifies choosing the correct colour palette.
According to the design rule, prioritize your bedroom as 60% wall + 30% furniture + 10% accessories. In other words, maximum weightage goes to the walls of your bedroom, as they form the backbone. The second attention enlists the kind of furniture we want – the bed type (king size, queen size, two single beds, etc.), the storage units, the wardrobe size & design, and much more. Lastly, contemplate the accessories, i.e., the curtains, the throw pillows, potted plants, lights, etc.
Sounds straightforward, right?
Explore Your Options
