How to Add Color to Your Master Bedroom

It can feel like an overwhelming task to decorate your master bedroom and to figure out a color scheme that you and your loved one agree on. Bedding, lighting, furniture, and accessories are all things to decide on. Sometimes it’s best to just start with the basics and grow your room from there. By basics I mean you should decide on a neutral bed and fill it with color, or paint the walls a white and build upon them with colorful art. The sky is the limit.

This is one option that can be a super simple solution to adding a pop of color that’s needed in your bedroom. I prefer adding a colorful rug to a very neutral space. You can also build upon the colors you already have in your room to create a fun dramatic space. Rugs can be a big investment, so one idea is to start with a neutral rug and overlap with a smaller, colorful rug.

For a dramatic approach to a colorful room, paint the focal wall a bright color. You don’t need to necessarily paint your entire room a color because that can result in way too much going on in one space. I’m loving this pretty blue with a pale pink stripe, as seen above.

The easiest way to add color into your bedroom space is by simply adding a bright blanket to your bed. Above, we see a very neutral bedroom with a vibrant blanket full of poppy pink. If you are like me, and you tend to get tired of colors easily, then this is an easy transformation that can be changed out quickly.

What do you think of adding color to your bedroom? Are you up for the challenge?
