1. Design features.
A bedroom in warm colors is the apotheosis of home comfort. But so that it does not turn out to be oversaturated, you should know the peculiarities of using warm colors.
- Light neutral shades are chosen as a base: white (pearl, ivory), beige (creamy, almond), pink (powdery, cream, peach), yellow (champagne, vanilla).
- Dark warm shades (chestnut, mahogany, chocolate, coffee) are the main ones in large bedrooms (from 18 sq.m. ), or they are left for furniture.
- Bright warm colors (red, orange, yellow) are suitable for decorating decorative elements.
2. What colors are best to use?
Before developing and implementing a bedroom design in warm colors, you should understand what is meant by the word “warm.”
Color has several characteristics: hue (red, green), saturation (bright-faded), lightness (light-dark), and temperature (warm-cold). Cool colors are obtained by mixing blue with any base color. Warm ones are based on red or orange impurities.
The temperature depends on the shade of a particular color. For example, creamy white looks more like beige and is warm. Snow White looks a little blue and is considered cold.
To arrange a bedroom in warm colors, choose:
For the bedroom, not only temperature is essential, but also saturation. Too bright, acidic tones create visual noise, disrupt sleep, and interfere with relaxation. It is best to take a light palette as a basis and highlight accents with dark muted shades.
The options are:
- The red range is ruby wine.
- Orange – ginger, rusty.
- Yellow – mustard, curry.
- Brown – cinnamon, chocolate.
3. Finishing options
Correctly distributing warm colors in the interior of the bedroom is already 50% of success. Most of the questions are about the ceiling: usually, it is painted blue-white, but in a warm room, such a design will look inappropriate.
There are many ways to exalt the walls in the bedroom, the most common: paint and wallpaper. You can paint all vertical surfaces in the same tone or accent the wall behind the headboard—for example, bright orange or sunny yellow. You will not see this expressive tone before going to bed, but in the morning, you can cheer up, barely getting out of bed.
When decorating a bedroom in country style or equipping a private house, it is appropriate to use boards on the walls: the color and texture of natural wood are warm in themselves, so it will perfectly fit into the design project.
If the wood on the walls is not always appropriate, then a wooden floor is a classic, suitable for almost any design direction. Both natural parquet and imitation wood in the form of linoleum or laminate are used as flooring. On top, you can lay a pile carpet in a warm color – pastel or bright.
4. The nuances of the selection of furniture and decor
In the interior of the bedroom in warm colors, wooden furniture looks best: we have already mentioned that the pleasant texture and color of the wood makes the room even more comfortable. But make sure that there is no busting with the tree; otherwise, the modern bedroom can become a hunting lodge parody.
For bedrooms in a classic style, light furniture, a shade of vanilla or coffee with milk, preferably with a gold finish, is suitable. For more straightforward modern trends, choose white furniture: it does not attract too much attention, is combined with any tones, and always looks appropriate.
Traditional bedroom decor includes:
- textiles (we’ll talk about it in the next section);
- pictures and posters (choose a suitable scale to the tone of the room);
The latter can be both neutral and exciting. For example, a pair of expressive sconces above the tables will replace decorating the wall above the bed. And the original table lamp in the makeup area will eliminate the need to buy decorative figurines.
5. What accents to choose?
Since there are the most textiles in the bedroom, it is on them that designers recommend focusing attention. Firstly, bedspreads and curtains create coziness. Secondly, they are easy and inexpensive to change to new ones when the tone gets bored. Are you used to getting up with the first rays of the sun? Choose any other fabric and model:
- light tulle for dark northern windows;
- Roman or rolled, if there is a table on the windowsill;
- multi-layer curtains for adherents of classic decoration.
Moving on to the bed: pillows and bedspreads look better if there are more of them than necessary – but in this case, you need to come up with a place where the textiles will be removed for the night. Add decorative pillows in bold solid, or painted pillowcases to your regular sleep pillows. Put a few blankets and bedspreads, too, so that one looks out from under the other. They should resonate in tone with the pads.
The third step is the floor. A pair of small rugs on the sides or one large for the whole room will set the mood and make your morning awakening more comfortable.
