Inspiration For A Serene Bedroom Colour Palette.

16 August 2022 0 comments


The walls are up, the carpets are in, the bed is on the way and the enjoyable part of 'home furnishing' can begin.

But before that, let me first give you some details.


After toying with countless tester pots in search for the perfect light putty-cum-grey of my mind's eye, I plumped for an off-white wall - Farrow & Ball's Wimborne White. Nice and simple. I wanted this room to lean neutral to slightly cool for a serene feel and Wimborne White in this North-East facing room hits the mark perfectly. For my tastes, I don't feel as though one can go wrong with Farrow & Ball's colour palette, with it's plethora of tonal neutrals. Feel free to get them colour matched by another brand to save some pennies, although I can't speak of the paint quality and finish. Fired Earth and Behr (Wheat Bread for instance) also do some lovely tones worthy of mention.

A deep-brown, wood was my first choice for flooring but the logistics lost out to the easy fix of a carpet in this instance. We plumped for a 100% wool carpet from Westex, a quality purchase that's soft underfoot. 


As far as building a colour palette for your own project, I would personally start by seeking inspiration. Either in objects or fabrics you enjoy, interiors books (I'll perhaps do a separate post/reel on this as it's a little passion) or by scouring Pinterest - I've recently reorganised my interior boards if you've similar tastes as myself.

Think if you'd like your scheme to be monochromatic (same varying hue), tonal (colours within the same family), contrasting (different colours) or complementary (opposing colours). Pick your main colour for large areas like the walls and flooring, and accent colours for smaller items.

For me personally, I know the palette I'm naturally drawn to - one only has to look within my closet for example.. A mixture of pale neutrals, with some blues and honeyed tones.

So with palette in hand, onto the fun part.

If you missed my 'first pass' of interior inspiration regarding this renovation have a peek. Here is part two of lovely finds.
