Bedrooms, as a general rule, are generally done in calm, relaxing color tones. This is because ultimately, the bedroom is a resting place and its design has to reflect this aspect of the function. Can you imagine having to fall asleep in a visually noisy cherry red bedroom? Or an electric magenta ambiance? You’ll definitely get nightmares.
But the thing about using calming all-neutral tones in your bedroom design is that they can sometimes come off as boring. So today, we’ll be featuring 5 unique ways you can add a splash of color to your bedroom interiors for contrast!
1. Bed covers all the way
Bed covers and pillow cases are the most obvious and easiest way to introduce a splash of bold contrast in your bedroom interiors. They’re also quite easy to change once you’re over a particular color scheme and want a change. The bright red and soft blue pillow cases in this image are an excellent example of how you can introduce vivid colors in a soft, neutral themed room.
2. Using darker highlights
Soft colors have darker tints and highlights that can be used to introduce contrast in the space. So, if your bedroom is done in a soft baby blue, you can use darker tints of navy and cerulean in the backdrop to add a visual interest to them. This can be in the form of accessories, painted wall and even furniture.
3. Using graphics
One of the best ways to introduce a bold splash of color to your interior designs is by using beautiful, vibrant artwork. A collection of gorgeous picture frames and paintings on a feature wall can definitely infuse your space with a charming vivacity that might have been otherwise hard to accomplish.
4. Lights always matter
Good lighting can always brighten up the space no matter how dull or monotonous. So you can definitely spark a splash of boldness in your bedrooms by selecting gorgeous accent lights in the form of nightstand lamps, suspended lights, track lights and even toe-kicks if the design calls for it.
5. A statement piece
A statement piece in a bold color can definitely elevate the ambiance of your bedroom. It can be anything from a furniture accent chair to an in-built shelf or even a boldly laminated wardrobe. It totally depends on the design and overall aesthetic of your bedroom interior design.
