Get Some Green Energy

Aloe, gerbera daisies and peace lilies add color and texture to your space. A soothing green hue on bedroom walls reinforces the holistic beauty of your blooms. A neutral white or off-white pairs well on the other walls to help widen the space and create a tranquil and sophisticated feel.

Aim High

Change the mood in a bedroom by repainting the ceiling: vibrant stripes for a cheerful toddler’s bedroom, cool blue for a soothing guest retreat, or a dark brown or gray to suggest depth in a main bedroom.

Make the Gradient

The gradient or “ombré” effect starts by painting the base of the walls one color, the ceiling another color and using colors in between to create a seamless look. With the gradient effect, a bedroom wall becomes a conversation piece. What’s more, you’ll have many color options to coordinate furniture and bedding. See how you can paint your own ombré accent wall.

Get the Picture

Make a gallery wall in a guest bedroom to display framed photos of memorable vacations or some of your favorite prints. A matte-black wall makes a great backdrop for your photos. You can also pull out a hue from colorful artwork and use it for the gallery wall. This charming detail makes guests feel right at home.
