What Color for Sleep? Paint Colors That Promote a Better Night’s Slumber

color for sleepI just read an article in My Domaine about paint colors that answer the question “What color for sleep?” In a previous blog, I shared 10 bedroom trends that can lead to a blissful sleep. This blog focuses on bedroom colors we choose to paint with.
Sleep plays a vital role in good health and well-being throughout your life. Getting enough quality sleep at the right times can help protect your mental health, physical health, quality of life, and safety. The way you feel while you’re awake depends in part on what happens while you’re sleeping. During sleep, your body is working to support healthy brain function and maintain your physical health.
Sleep also plays an important role in your physical health. For example, sleep is involved in healing and repair of your heart and blood vessels. Ongoing sleep deficiency is linked to an increased risk of heart disease, kidney disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and stroke. Sleep deficiency also increases the risk of obesity and impairs driving.
So how do you pick the right paint color for sleep? The following interior designers share their expert tips:
1) Use Dark Colors
“For a sexy or romantic bedroom, I like to stick with dark colors like olive, deep violet, navy, or charcoal,” says interior designer Brian Patrick Flynn. “For clients interested in calm, tranquil bedrooms, I’m quick to suggest a blue-gray, celery tones, or a layering of white paint with all white furniture and linens. Overall, since bedrooms are meant for relaxation, I try to stay away from high-energy colors like bright greens, deep reds, or bold, tropical hues.”
2) Think Serene and Happy
“In the bedroom, I love a room that’s both serene and happy,” interior designer Kimberly Ayres says. “Go for soft color combinations like duck egg blue and champagne, then add a mix of fresh patterns.” Whatever color you choose, make sure it’s a muted version of the hue, so you’ll never go too bold.
3) Keep it Timeless
“I love to keep the color of a bedroom simple, timeless and classic,” says Grant K. Gibson. “By keeping things neutral, you avoid trends and then are able to have fun with the other items in the space, like the bedding, throw pillows, side tables and lamps. It’s then fun to be able to add a pop of color to add interest and layers.
