Your bedroom must be a relaxing space to ensure a restful night’s sleep, and the paint color you choose makes a big difference. If you’re thinking about repainting your bedroom, we have some relaxing paint color ideas for your NYC bedroom.

The Psychology of Color

Color psychology studies how color affects human feelings and behavior and how certain hues are more conducive to feelings of peace than others. Red and orange are bold and energizing, which makes them fantastic for living rooms but not the best choice for rooms where you want to unwind. Use our Benjamin Moore paint color ideas as inspiration for your ideal bedroom.

Clean, Classic White

White is a relaxing color because it delivers a fresh, clean aesthetic and is a restful hue for tired eyes. It’s the perfect canvas for adding other shades and goes well with any interior design style. For the most relaxing environment, we recommend using a warm white. Benjamin Moore Butter Pecan OC-89 is white, warmed by a hint of peach. If you want a warm, pure white, try Simply White OC-117.

Earthy Beige

Beige shares the simplicity of white but is a bit more engaging. The earthy tone is basic but not bland, bringing an organic feel to your bedroom. Shades of beige are elegant and sophisticated, and warmer versions of the color will make your bedroom cozier. Alexandria Beige HC-77 is a soft shade of taupe with nuances of warm and cool undertones that make it the perfect pick for every bedroom.

Pale Gray

Nothing makes you want to curl up in bed like a foggy, rainy day, and shades of pale gray emulate the feeling perfectly. Eternity AF-695 is an alluring light gray with subtle blue undertones for quiet elegance and a welcoming bedroom. Gray Owl OC-52 is another versatile light gray with a cool, crisp appearance that pops when paired with Hale Navy HC-154. Gray isn’t for everyone, so consider gathering paint samples with dark and warm undertones to see both in your space.

Natural Blues and Greens

It’s no secret that being outdoors relieves stress and promotes relaxation, so it only makes sense that using natural shades of blue and green in your bedroom will make it a more relaxing space. Winchester Sage 628 is a peaceful green shade grounded by blue and gray undertones. It pairs well with the warmth of Swiss Coffee OC-45. If blue is more your speed, we suggest a lighter shade reminiscent of the sky on a clear, sunny day. Delano Waters 766 is a balanced shade of light blue that looks fantastic with the pale yellow hue of Morning Light 183.
