Decor Q&A: Choosing Bedroom Paint?

Q.

The Nest Q&A

What color should I put on my bedroom walls?

A.

Sure, some people aren’t scared of bold colors like cobalt blue or reds and oranges, and they like to put up wallpaper in crazy prints. But be honest with yourself: Will you really enjoy waking up to such a color explosion? If not, a more peaceful alternative is to keep the bedroom neutral and bring in colors with accessories like vases and pillows. Skip boring beige and go with soft blues and greens, like Restoration Hardware's “Silver Sage” paint collection for $32 a gallon. Pair your walls with soft browns and ivory for a rich, earthy look.
