Master bedroom decorating ideas often pivot around a colour palette. Colour is something that tends to drive much of the decision-making in any room’s scheme, and the bedroom is no different. If the rest of your home is already renovated, look to those rooms to inspire your bedroom’s palette.
While there’s no reason that you can’t pick a shade that’s completely different to the rest of the tones in your home, it’s generally believed that a harmonious palette of similar colours works best. This is so that there’s a clear flow between your rooms, which in turn, encourages a sense of calm and order.
Most interior designers will also suggest choosing hues that are tranquil for bedrooms – blue bedrooms, grey bedrooms, whites and soft pink bedrooms – because they’ll do their bit in easing you into a gentle sleep. This is why colours such as sunny yellow and zingy orange or patterned wallpapers are frowned upon, because their busyness is counter to the ambience that suits a bedroom’s spirit, especially in the master bedroom.
Something that’s often seen however, is to use wallpaper to create an accent wall behind the headboard. This way, you can still bring in a dose of awakening colour and dazzling pattern which is uplifting when you walk into the room or jump out of bed in the morning. But, placed firmly behind you, it’s out of sight when you’re under the covers.
