The power of color in interior design cannot be underestimated, especially in our bedrooms. After all, the colors we surround ourselves with can have a major impact on everything from our mood to our general sense of wellbeing. And our bedrooms are our sanctuaries from the stresses of everyday life. As the days get longer and the sun begins to shine a little brighter, it’s the perfect time to spruce up your bedroom and give it a much-needed color makeover. This spring, we’re taking inspiration from the trending paint colors and interiors trends for 2023 to create light and bright spaces that not only look great, but also help us to feel our best. Here are our top picks for spring bedroom color combinations for 2023.
Magenta, gray, and light pink. Pantone's Viva Magenta is the Color of the Year 2023, and it's quickly become a favorite in fashion and design. This deep reddish-pink hue is both vibrant and warm, empowering and earthy. As a bold shade, a little goes a long way. It pairs well with a cool gray and touches of soft pink. This combination will allow magenta to stand out without being too stark. For example, you could opt for soft gray bedding (like our Lux Sheets in Heather Gray) and pair it with magenta and soft pink throw pillows. The overall look will be bright and fun for the spring season without being overwhelming.
Beige-pink, white, gray and champagne. Dusky pinks are also trending this spring. Sherwin-Williams’ Color of the Year is Redend Point, a gorgeous blush beige that they say “is the perfect example of the warm, versatile, and unexpected neutrals we expect will become increasingly sought after in 2023”. For a bedroom, this color pairs beautifully with a French-inspired palette of white, champagne, and gray with rose gold metallic accents. It’s feminine without being overpowering and the perfect update to your spring style. You’ll feel like you stepped into a Parisian hotel room (especially if you choose our five-star hotel-quality sheets !)
Warm neutrals. A spring refresh doesn’t have to mean pastels or bright floral shades. Saturated warm earth tones are trending for 2023, including taupes, browns and caramel hues. The look is cozy and grounded, anchoring us to nature and the world around us. Warm browns work especially well in north-facing rooms, where they’ll absorb and reflect light. When decorating with neutrals for spring, it’s important to include lots of texture, like beautiful bed linens in shades of taupe, sand and ivory, along with statement décor pieces in neutral shades (like our handwoven raffia plates ). Warm metallics like brass and bronze are great for accent pieces, adding even more dimension.
Green and white. Green is a calming, tranquil color that's ideal for a bedroom, especially if you want to create a natural, biophilic feel. 2023 is all about forest greens in a range of hues and intensities. While you can happily pair greens with bright tropical shades if you’re feeling punchy, partnering them with chalky white is a classic combination that will feel soothing and grounding. Another palette that’s ideal for a spring bedroom is soft naturals, with cream, tan, and terracotta bringing out green’s earthier side.
Honey tones. Warm yellows are another major trend for 2023, in shades from ochre to buttercup and soft golds. Yellows add warmth and vibrancy to a room and can’t fail to lift the mood. Perfect for a season of renewal! For your bedroom, opt for muted honey tones instead of bright statement yellows that may overwhelm the space, and pair with soft gray or greige and white.
Whichever of these trending spring bedroom color combinations you’re drawn to, the most important thing is to create a sleep space that you love. Trends can lead the way and provide you with ideas and inspiration you may not have thought of, but a design has to resonate with you before you give it serious consideration. It’s all about what feels good to you!
