Green is known for its calming effect and, according to Houzz, this means it’s a popular colour for in the bedroom. Unfortunately, many people get it wrong and end up with a sickly sweet colour that can become nauseating rather than soothing.

Here are five tips for getting your green bedroom right:


1. Accentuate wood

For a beautiful and soothing bedroom that houses exposed wood, a pear green on the walls can offer instant relaxation. The combination of charming furniture and bold and soft colours makes a bedroom everyone would love. This could be a great choice for a guest bedroom.

2. Paint the ceiling

Rather than paint the walls green, try painting the ceiling green and leaving the walls white. Just be sure to pick up the colour using accents and accessories within the room.

3. Get funky

For a modern, funky bedroom, try teaming a bold green with darker wood tones. You don’t want to cover your walls in it, but a bold green patterned rug and accessories could make a great room, especially for a sophisticated teen.

4. Cool off

For a restful bedroom, paint your walls a soft mint green. This keeps the bedroom cool, but doesn’t carry the starkness that an all-white bedroom can.

5. Bring in a touch of yellow

Celery green brings a slight touch of yellow to the walls and when teamed with the right neutral accessories can look supremely grown-up. Try bringing nature into the room through art, a linen bedspread and patterned cushions.
