Navy with coral

A pastel color scheme is soothing and creates a restful, tranquil ambiance in any bedroom.
Don’t be afraid to mix pastel colors to create your own unique palette. A more neutral or muted background will allow the gentle tones of your pastel color scheme to pop.
Some ideas for pastel color schemes: Peppermint works beautifully with lilac. Pink and yellow work well together. Blue, yellow and purple is always a safe choice.
Choose the base color first (blue, pink, purple, green, gray), then use the colours you prefer to build on the base color, add accents and create dreamlike combinations.
Mustard with purple
This bright color bedroom scheme is not for the fainthearted. It works best in accent pieces like pillows, throws, and area rug. It’s great for a kids’ room too.
It certainly creates an atmosphere of luxury and passion. You can incorporate some oriental elements to your design, such as patterns, shapes and accessories. Complete the idilic picture by adding candles or incense burners.
Indigo with white bedroom color schemes
Indigo is a mystifying hue. It works beautifully with white but is best used as the accent color. However, if you can stand dark walls, paint your bedroom walls in indigo and wrap your bed in indigo/white linens. After all, bedrooms with white furniture are amazing and quite soothing especially when combined with this indigo hue.
Black with white
No two colors are as famous together as black and white. If you love timeless decor, this is the color scheme to use. You can find this black and white set here. Although most of the furniture here is dark shaded, you can still opt for white duvet covers that will create the impression of a bedroom with white furniture. It is a great idea if you already have too much dark in the bedroom and want to break the dominance of that color.
Bedrooms with gray and white color schemes
Yellow and Grey Bedroom
All of these colors work well together or in combination of two. For example, gray and black works well together, and so does white and yellow. The combo of great and white in bedroom is a very special feature to use. A bedroom with grey walls has something to say and constitutes a very stylish decor! Dare to try this out!
A yellow and grey bedroom was, is and will be of modern touch. This color blocking creates a great atmosphere in your room. You can have yellow details all around like pillows or blankets.

Relaxing, beautiful and above all cozy and warm are some of its features.
Tip: You can add some white details like a white curtain and white lamps or pictures on the wall. It’s a color that will boost the rest of the room and create inviting atmosphere.
Gray, cream and purple
The most versatile shade in this group is purple. Purple can be lavender, plum, mauve, or lilac. Again, shades of white and gray perfectly combine together for an amazing gray bedroom with colorful details! Notice that in this case you can also play it up with some white bedroom rug. In this example this one is quite fluffy and modern, thus giving the room a great cozy vibe.
Purple adds a sense of luxury to your bedroom. Try it in different fabrics and material, like silk, cotton, linen, metal and glass. Purple textures can really bring a more muted background palette to life, while adding some of your personality to the room.

Dark gray with brown
Tempered with decorative linen or the right wall decorations, this bedroom color scheme can be easily brightened up. What really helps up in this though is that it belongs to those bedrooms with white furniture. White elements make the space look brighter. In this example, you can notice the white door frame that stands out. Also, the white windows and floor lamp as well as the duvet cover are good additions to the overall decor.

Gray with orange
Orange completely dominates gray in any color scheme. Light grey walls with grey and orange linen and other accents look fantastic.
Orange is vibrant, fun and youthful. Used as a bedroom color, it can really create modern and eclectic designs, but also bring some vibrant touches to a more traditional interior.
Gray and orange is a match made in heaven, offering endless combinations. For a more dramatic palette you can use a cooler gray shade. You can also try different hues of orange, depending on your preference. Warmer tones combined together can be excellent for a more traditional bedroom with heavier furniture. Try more vibrant hues of orange for a more contemporary take, which can be perfect for teen bedroom.

This romantic color scheme creates a sensual ambiance. We also have some other gray bedroom ideas you might like with or without other colors combined!
Red and pink combined can also create a more casual atmosphere, and make the bedroom look more lively. Add some drama with luxurious fabrics or tone it down with patterns and lighter textiles like linen. Accessories in glass or transparent plastic can also help you move the design to your preferred direction.
Special combinations with special colors
Black white and yellow-lime
Black and white on its own is classic. Adding a yellow-lime hue creates an art deco feel. If you want your bedroom to look posh, choose this color combination. No one could deny that they are good colors for bedrooms! Still in this case white furniture is visible, on the lamp, even bed (with stripes) and pillows.
Turquoise with purple
This combination looks fab. Why not give it a go?
Turquoise, also known as teal, is another statement color that dominates a space with its vibrant, yet elegant tones. Matched with purple, it creates a darker interior which however remains modern and fresh. Try it with metallic or gold accessories which can interrupt the heavier colour palette. Depending on the tones of purple and turquoise you choose, this palette can create a more vintage 70s aesthetic. The choice is yours!

White sand with silver
A beautiful combination for an older or younger couple.
If your choice is elegant glamour, then this is the colour combination for you. The bedroom still looks comfy, practical and clean. However, more sparkling silver tones and accessories can really bring out the glamour. Try it on pillows, frames, bedding or lamps. Aiming for a less understated design? Then try a wallpaper with shiny silver details.
Bedrooms with white furniture, gold and beige
A perfect bedroom color scheme that is majestic and elegant. Works great as a guest room color combo. The furniture in different shades spices it up and makes the room look chic. The elegant aesthetics of white furniture paired with gold colors is just amazing.
Black, brown, white and green
If you own a beach house or a log-cabin styled home, this combination would be splendid as a bedroom color palette.
