Trending Bedroom Colors

Mood Boards

When it comes to refreshing bedrooms this fall, the latest hues for walls and décor are sunny, moody, and saturated. Pantone’s Color of the Year—Ultra Violet—has been influencing bedroom tones from plummy purple to aubergine, while marigold yellow is bringing whimsy and cheer to even the most traditional of spaces.

Take your cues from these three mood boards when starting down the path of your next bedroom overhaul, and let the trending colors of fall 2018 infuse your home.

Blush continues its reign in the bedroom space, while warm gray, earthy beige, and perhaps the most surprising accent color—matte black—act as modern anchors to neutral furnishings, providing a layer of meditative calm.
