The best bedroom colours for 2022
Mustard and French blue
Sun-kissed yellow is the perfect colour option for those who want their bedroom to be bursting with mood-boosting, cheer enhancing qualities, but sometimes the thought of whipping out your paintbrushes and painting the whole room yellow can be slightly intimidating. The answer? French blue. The cornflower-esque shade's associations with tranquility and calm are the perfect thing to balance out a vivid mustard yellow. If this colour pairing isn't quite what you're looking for, take a look at some more of our yellow bedroom ideas to help you find the perfect colour palette.
Blue, white and neutral
Coastal decor is all the rage right now, thanks to the skyrocketing popularity of 2022's newest decor trend, coastal grandma style. If you're keen to embrace the look, teaming a classic navy and white combo with earth-toned accents is a great way to make sure your bedroom looks chic and beachy, rather than nautical.
Sage green and sunshine yellow
Green is known for its soothing, grounding effects, with studies even proving that looking at the colour green can reduce levels of stress hormone cortisol. If a totally green bedroom isn't for you, however, why not break up a sage green scheme with some sunshine yellow bedlinen? A pop of yellow will make your tranquil space feel optimistic and energising - don't forget to take a look at our pick of the best duvet covers if you're in need of some inspiration!
Pink and green
Pink and green are a match made in heaven - whether you team emerald green and coral or earthy sage with blush tones, they'll balance each other out perfectly. Add a touch of gold if you want your scheme to have a warm, Art Deco inspired edge, or opt for cool silver fixtures to energise the space. Don't forget to finish the look with a scattering of real houseplants - their fresh green leaves will keep your room feeling invigorating and relaxing at the same time.
Pink and grey
If you're after some unusual pink bedroom ideas, silvery grey works brilliantly with dusky pink shades - the contrast between the warm and cool colours makes for a really interesting space. To prevent your room from looking too clinical, be sure to add in lots of natural tones and textures - think wood, wicker and boho style woven bedding.
Teal and earth tones
Teal is a brilliant choice for a bedroom because it combines the calming qualities of blue with the energising effects of green. A splash of teal, whether it's in the form of a feature headboard, some quirky bedroom wall art or some simple teal cushions, can make you feel simultaneously rested and restored - style it with earth tones for a contemporary yet classic look. Earth tones not your thing? Take a look at our teal bedroom ideas to find a colour scheme more suited to you.
Burgundy and jewel tones
If you're looking to create your ideal romantic bedroom but don't necessarily want to go down the route of white, pink and chateau style furniture, this deep, dramatic burgundy red decor scheme might just be for you. When you've painted your walls in a rich, red wine shade, don't be afraid to embrace more dark decor and luxurious textures to create a sense of maximalist opulence - think four poster beds, jewel toned headboards and layers of patterned bedding.
Burnt orange and grey
If your dream bedroom is chic and contemporary but still cosy, why not warm up a blue-toned grey scheme with terracotta tones? Teaming burnt orange shades with crisp white and grey is a perfect way to keep your space looking fresh and clean, but still homely and snug. Add rattan accents for a relaxed, bohemian look, or choose Scandi style furniture if you prefer your rooms to look sleek and simple.
Blue and fuchsia
When it comes to the best bedroom colours for sleep, nothing beats blue. Proven to have a calming influence, blue shades are primarily associated with peace, calm and security, but this doesn't mean that you should steer clear of the colour if you tend to prefer more vibrant colour schemes. For a maximalist take on a blue bedroom scheme, team electric blue with a shocking, contrasting shade like fuchsia pink. Complete the scheme by mixing and matching fun, cottagecore inspired floral patterns with exposed floorboards.

Black, white and navy
Think black is too intense for a bedroom? Think again! Dark navy or black accessories are great for adding drama to an otherwise white bedroom, and will look totally classic and timeless when teamed with off white walls and flooring. To keep your monochrome scheme looking inviting rather than harsh, we suggest installing wooden panelling for texture and depth, and choosing period furniture with a bit of character over anything too new. If you're keen to keep costs down, why not upcycle some second hand pieces with chalk paint? If you need a bit of inspiration, check out our guides on how to use chalk paint around your home and how to use Frenchic paint - and don't forget to look at our pick of the best chalk paint brushes before you get started!
Bright yellow and sunset tones
Looking for master bedroom ideas that'll keep your room feeling summery all year round? A Santa Fe inspired colour scheme is the answer! Take cues from the bedroom above and team warm yellow with terracotta and lilac accents. Add gold accessories to create a luxe look - think statement lighting and metallic accents on furniture!
White, cream and chocolate brown
This space is perfect proof that a white bedroom can still feel comfortable and cosy if you choose the right colour palette to go with it. Styling creams, neutrals and a dash of chocolate brown against white walls will allow your room to feel calm and serene without looking cold or stark.
Pink and olive
We often associate olive green shades with Mid-century Modern design, but the earthy tone actually looks great in a number of different decor schemes. Why not be inspired by the bedroom above and use it to add a funky twist to a Parisian inspired space? Add a pop of red to really bring the space to life!
Smoky grey and fresh white
A smoky charcoal feature wall is great for making white walls pop. Add in splashes of black for a cosy take on sleek Japandi style, or keep the look a bit softer by sticking to grey and neutral accessories. If you're looking for bedroom wall ideas to finish the look, an open shelving feature can really bring a dark feature wall to life.
