If your bedroom is feeling more “meh” than yas, then maybe it’s time for a color-palette refresh. After all, that sacred place where you sleep in on the weekends, binge on Netflix or escape for some creative me-time should encourage sweet dreams — not be a snooze-fest. Grays and neutrals are always a safe color option, but if you’re looking to create the ultimate bedroom oasis, you’ll want to choose a more fresh and unexpected color scheme. Here are three color schemes guaranteed to get you in that blissed-out state of mind and spice up your bedroom. Then when you’ve got your color palette down, be sure to add home accessories, wall art and anything else that your room could possibly need for the ultimate grown-up space.
Lilac + Mint
Yes, that combo sounds like a lovely candle scent, but those two colors come together for a feminine and modern color palette that’s perfect for a spring refresh. This calming combination strikes a nice balance and is French-girl chic, which makes it a great color combo for the place you go to unwind. Bright mint balances out the warmth and femininity of purple for a bedroom you’ll be eager to spend many lazy Sundays.

Yellow + Green
Good morning, sunshine. Maybe having a dose of yellow in your bedroom will help make those morning routines a little easier to stick to. Tropical tones like yellow and green are such energetic colors that the combo might be just the cheery makeover your space needs. Don’t forget the funky accents and toucan throw pillow – they’re the icing on your decor cake.

Rose Quartz + Serenity Blue
An all-pink bedroom can scream girly-girl, so instead of overwhelming the room with a pink palette, opt for soft pink bedding and complementary blue accessories a la Pantone. Keeping the rest of the decor light and reflective helps tone down the pink and create a sense of luxury. Rough textures like baskets and chunky throw blankets also help cut the femininity, in case you have a guy’s opinion to consider.
