These uplifting bedroom schemes will help you wake up feeling revived and ready to face the new day.

1. Refreshing green
 

Green strikes the perfect balance between being vibrant and restful, making it perfect for a bedroom scheme. Paint your walls in zesty hues for a bit of extra get-up-and-go in the morning or choose marine tones for a serene but invigorating feel.

3. Energizing orange

Orange bedroom


Lively orange is guaranteed to have you leaping out of bed in the morning. Bright oranges have a vibrant, retro feel and due to their intensity they usually work best as accents. If you want wall-to-wall orange, terracotta and coppery shades are softer options for a bedroom scheme.

To help make your bedroom feel extra bright and cheerful, try our Light + Space Matt paint. Its light-reflective particles are designed to bounce light back into your room.

4. Sunny yellow

Mustard bedroom


A rich yellow or mustard room will make you smile the second you open your eyes in the morning. Yellow often appears brighter once it’s up on your walls than it does in the color chart so, for a bedroom scheme, it can be a good idea to go a couple of shades lighter than you might think, so the color isn’t too stimulating.

5. Calming blue

For a subtle way to work mood-lifting colors into your scheme, go for an ombre effect with your chosen color on the bottom half of the wall, fading out to white at the halfway point.
