Your bedroom is the most personal space in your home. And that space should boast a serene, relaxing feeling. Not only when it comes to decorating your bedroom, but when it comes to picking the paint color on the walls.
Picking paint colors for any room is a daunting task. There are so many things to take into consideration such as lighting, furnishings, flooring, and your personal tastes. What I love about farmhouse paint colors is, they’re generally neutral and go very well with just about anything. I really love neutral palettes and how the right paint can make the furnishings and other decor within a room really stand out.
While farmhouse paint colors generally lean toward neutral (and I love neutral), neutral never has to be dull and you certainly don’t have to paint everything white (my husband would kill me if I did). And speaking of white… it’s a lot more dynamic than people give it credit for. So, enter paint color selection with an open mind. These paint colors are my absolute favorite and perfect for farmhouse bedrooms.
The Best Bedroom White Paint Color – Sherwin Williams Downy
This wound up being the color we selected for our bedroom. Our bedroom is on the small side for a master suite. And with a big king sized bed in there, we wanted something to offset the dark, rustic wood and brighten the room. This color has just a touch of warmth without looking yellow to add to the overall feel of the room. It has a high light reflective value to brighten the space and make it feel more open and airy. I personally think it’s one of the best colors there is.
Cool and Calming Bedroom Color – Sherwin Williams Sea Salt
I have seen a lot of bedrooms done up in this color and it’s absolutely beautiful. It didn’t fit in our room, so I passed. This is why it’s so important to test out your paint colors! I love all of the photos I see of this color. I’ve watched Joanna Gaines use this color (or one very similar) multiple times with success. It’s a beautiful green color that just looks so serene. It looks fantastic against crisp, white trim.
The Best True Grey Bedroom Paint Color – Valspar Urban Sunrise
I love this color by Valspar. We’ve painted all of our spaces this color as a starting point simply because we had it on hand and wanted to bring some light into the rooms of our home. This is a true grey, not greige by any stretch and it doesn’t have any blue undertones to it, either. It’s a light grey, so it looks good even in small spaces that don’t get a lot of light and it brings out the beauty in any wood tones you have around it.
The Best Bedroom Trim Color – Valspar Swiss Coffee
It amazes me how many shades of white there truly are. Swiss coffee is a beautiful, true white. I really like white trim overall. The only time I don’t is in really old homes that still have the original woodwork… that stuff needs to be sanded and stained to bring back it’s natural beauty. But for your everyday, builder grade home? White is my go to. We painted all of the trim in our home (which was that faux oak stuff) this color. It allows all of the above colors to pop (even downy) and I was amazed at how different the space looked when all of the trim was painted white instead of fake wood. It really brightens the area.
The Best Bedroom Accent Color – Sherwin Williams Urbane Bronze
I don’t usually like dark colors. They scare me, but I have to admit this color is amazing. I took a leap of faith and decided to paint our doors this color. And I’m painting my cedar chest this color, and using it as an accent all around. It is an amazing accent color. It really makes everything come together despite the fact it’s almost black (it’s actually a really dark brown). If you have some furniture pieces or frames… I encourage you to try this color. It will look fantastic with the above listed colors and really bring some dimension to your space.
Since we painted our bedroom, I’m ready to go through and paint the whole house all over again. I have a few other favorites for other spaces, but these colors are some of my favorites and I cannot wait to use them in other spaces.
