1. Highlight your desires to define your color family
Today, the bedroom is a multifunctional place and expectations diverge for this particular room. On the one hand, those who want a very cozy place , like a boudoir with a wrapped side. The colors are then muted, desaturated. They pull towards black like a burgundy, an anthracite grey, an aubergine violet, an ink blue, a gray khaki, a deep bluish green or even a terracotta. And on the other hand, those who aspire to light colors where the light is important. It’s a palette in neutrals and pastels like a powder pink, matte and soothing shades that absorb the light. The idea is to evacuate tensions with a calm universe.”

2. Work on color associations in the bedroom
Once your desires have been set, the color palette becomes a big playground where you like to indulge yourself with unique combinations full of personality. If we apply a major neutral tone, an anthracite gray for example, we create a contrasts with brighter tones such as almond green or greyish blue. When starting with a mastic beige, you can add a touch of ochre, tones between khaki and yellow which are best worked in shades.”

In the spirit of the times, dark or very marked colors come out of the shadows and take over the house. We are sometimes tempted to marry several colors together but it is not always necessary.”
3. Consider light to determine color in the bedroom
The nuance is fine but it is a key criterion. “The notion of light is very important when deciding on the color, notes Céline Gerst. With a bedroom facing north, the light does not change, the lighting is constant throughout the day. It has a very calm side , soothing even if the color does not live with the sun.”

In order to realize the effect of light on color, it is advisable to paint a board or sheet of 50 x 50 cm and hang it on the wall for a whole day. As the hours go by, we notice the evolution of the color.
4. Choose the color according to the style of the place and its furniture
We sometimes forget it, but the character of the apartment or the house is important in determining the colors of the room and the way to apply them. We then turn to colors of our choice, leaving the moldings white to avoid accentuating them. Painting a section of the wall without going all the way to the ceiling will also give a feeling of space to the room. In a loft-style apartment, the architectural

Another strong element, the furniture defines the appropriate colors in a room. “In a room with light wood furniture, for example, we recommend soft colors such as pastels”, continues the interior designer. The essence of the wood, more or less dark, the size of the furniture and its volume, are decisive. In a small bedroom with little light and a large walnut wardrobe, we tend more towards light colors to avoid darkening the room (unless you want to create a cocoon effect).
5. Use color to organize spaces in the bedroom
In a bedroom, color is also intended to structure the room , especially if it houses several spaces in one. “Before deciding on the colors, it is useful to know if the bedroom is only a place of night or if there is also life with a desk, for example, questions Céline Gerst. We can then use the color to organize the space by delimiting the work and sleeping area. Depending on the volume, an alcove is created for the sleeping area or a painting is applied as a headboard.”

With a zest of audacity, we also dare color in an excessive way to draw a cocoon around the bed. “It’s interesting to paint the whole room or the whole sleeping area with a box effect , suggests Arnaud Lenoir. In this case, the rest of the room needs to be quite clean.”
6. Carefully determine where to put color in the bedroom
Painting in the bedroom is believed to promote a sense of well-being and encourage good sleep . “We really like to put color at the head of the bed to delimit the sleeping area but also to avoid waking up to the tint”, deciphers Arnaud Lenoir. Even if she is present, she remains discreet. Another aspect, in a child’s room , color is useful to reinforce a protective side. “In the world of children, painting is done on one wall or two walls, recommends Céline Gerst. As they like to feel protected, the bed is often placed in an angle. It’s nice to work on these two walls. .”
As mentioned, the light is also to be taken into account when choosing where to put the color. “In any case, it is advisable not to paint the wall of the window which will create a backlight, continues Céline Gerst. Conversely, in front of a window, the natural light will play with the color .”
