Best Bedroom Colours for 2023
Another year has come to a close, and with it we’re looking ahead to what’s on the horizon for interior design.
The bedroom is where you spend a third of your life, so it’s vital to make sure it’s a space you want to kick back and relax in. We’ve hunted down the hottest trends for bedroom colours in 2023 so you can keep your space fresh and updated while staying on trend.
Let’s dive into the top bedroom colours to reinvigorate your space in the coming year.
Natural, warm tones that are soothing to the eye are set to be big in 2023. Bring some boho chic to your bedroom with these calming colours for maximum comfort and interest.
An update to sage greens
Dulux’s Wild Wonder is the pick for its much-anticipated Colour of the Year for 2023, advertising itself as ‘the new sage green’. This cosy shade of yellow-tinged green looks natural and invites warmth to any space, while still feeling bright and airy.
If you’re looking to decorate in this shade, treat it as you would any neutral colour. The yellow undertones would work well with natural wood, copper finishes and concrete accessories. Fabrics like natural linen or anything in neutral beiges and greys would finish the room nicely.
‘Millennial’ pink has had its moment and now it’s time for a deeper, warmer shade of pink to reign. With brown undertones tied in, this works well in masculine and feminine bedrooms. It’s so on trend that Sherwin-Williams has named its Redend Point shade as colour of the year for 2023.
Use this hue as part of a wider earthy tones colour palette, combining with soft blues and greens. Our Mocha Moment paint is an excellent choice as part of this colour palette if you want a subtler look in your bedroom and use dusty pink as an accent colour.
These moody and dramatic hues have had a moment for the last few seasons, with no signs of going away any time soon. The ultimate in luxury, it’s no surprise these rich, inviting tones are here to stay.
Bold and rich, forest green is reminiscent of stately homes and bringing nature indoors. To bring some of this heritage splendour into your bedroom, try Farrow & Ball’s Duck Green or Dulux’s Highland Green to bring this deep green, calming vibe to your space.
This luxe colour pairs beautifully with other premium materials like marble and natural stone with bright whites and gold accessories. Continue down the natural root with paler to medium-tone wooden furniture for a truly cosy bedroom.
This mix of red and purple has long been associated with elegance and Farrow & Ball’s Preference Red shade would be the perfect addition to your bedroom if you’re looking to add a warm, enveloping feel to the space. This rich colour also works well with luxurious fabrics like silk and velvet - update your room for a relatively low commitment with aubergine pillows, bedspreads and upholstery.
This reddish-purple tone is a natural partner with golden accessories. If you want to feel like royalty, consider adding in new handles, vases and lamps with gold accents.
Often used sparingly or even shied away from, colourful and bright colours are being seen more and more across social media and interior design trends. Used in the right way, these loud choices can bring real personality to any bedroom.
Dulux isn’t the only brand to introduce their colour calling card this year. Benjamin Moore has declared Raspberry Blush, a mix of coral and pink hues, as its colour of the year.
Such a bold statement on the walls works fabulously as an accent colour in a bedroom. If you want to go all out and paint every well in this rich, inviting shade, pair neutral furnishings in creams and blacks to match the aesthetic. The deep pink would work wonderfully for anyone looking for a Moroccan vibe for their sleeping space, or pare the colour back by adding chic blush accents and furnishings.
Blue is a great choice for a bedroom due to its calming, tranquil feel that’s often desired for a sleeping space. A new direction is to go bold rather than pastel with your blues, such as Farrow & Ball’s new Wine Dark colour’s moody vibe.
Pair this hue with pops of neons or oranges for an eclectic finish. If you want to let the colour do the talking, opt for creams and dark wooden finishes on your accessories and furniture choices. Rattan is a great choice to match, too.
Neutrals will always be a popular choice for a bedroom, but in 2023 expect to see an update to the usual creams and whites. Introduce colours with interesting undertones like purples or blues to update the classic.
Led by the wellness trend that’s permeated interior design in recent years, a warm white is inviting, calming and timeless - so much so that Behr has named its neutral Blank Canvas as its colour of 2023.
Our Lavish Linen paint ticks this box, with its inviting sandy tone pairing wonderfully with bright whites and golds for a comforting, warm bedroom. We also love this shade with natural wood and bouclé furnishings for extra cosiness.
Black is neutral, too! For the daring out there dark greys, charcoals and inky blacks are dominating interior design trends for 2023.
Our Beautiful Black paint applied to the ceiling or as an accent colour would make a bold statement while still matching your neutral bedroom decor. Don’t want to paint? You can bring this dramatic tone in with accessories like vases, lamps and trinkets.
Whether you’re feeling adventurous or want a classic look, this varied list of top colours for your bedroom in 2023 will suit any style.
