There are many ways to do this paint the bedroom but, no doubt, it is most logical and practical to paint it with a relaxing color, since the bedroom is a room where we relax and rest and we have to create an environment for it. Don’t you think so?
Fortunately, if we look at the color wheel we can see exactly which colors relax and which don’t.
The colors that are in the cold part are relaxing, and those in the warm part are not. Or at least not all.
If you want to see more details about the chromatic wheel and what it tells us about colors, you can do so here, and if not, follow me and discover these 22 best relaxing colors for painting a bedroom that I have prepared.

Medium blue shade. Blue is the most relaxing color we can use to paint a bedroom. We could look at the color wheel for its tones and shades, choose any of them with our eyes closed to paint the bedroom, and continue to paint the room with a relaxing color. If you like this shade of natural blue, Bruguer has the perfect shade, natural Mediterranean blue, which you can buy here.
Although the extensive blues palette is relaxing, I chose five shades of blue. See the first above these lines.
Let’s move on to the next one.
Light blue color. Almost relaxing than the previous one, and if combined with white, it’s also bright.
Grayish blue tone. In addition to relaxing, this color has a calmer and more elegant shade, thanks to the gray color. It’s not as vivid as other blues, so that’s why I chose it.
Electric blue tone. Stronger and more energetic, but very relaxing, electric blue is one of the most popular and popular colors. If the same thing happens to you and you are looking for a relaxing bedroom, you can use it without any problems.

Dark blue tone. If you are looking for a blue with more presence, this is yours.

Practically the same as blue, green in almost all tones and shades is a relaxing, cool color; perfect for achieving a relaxing atmosphere in the bedroom or wherever you put it.

Grayish green As with blue, green is even more elegant and serene in its grayish tones. Truly a success.
Elegant, serene and full of life, green is another color that makes it very easy for us to achieve the relaxing bedroom we have seen.
Let’s move on to the next color.
The color turquoise is a mixture or combination of green and blue; so it is without a doubt another relaxing color for painting a bedroom.
It is true that as a semi-saturated color it gives off a lot of energy and repainting can be stressful, but well added creates spaces, without a doubt, very relaxing.
Above these lines we see an example.
Lilac, purple or lavender

The purple color is made from a mixture of red and blue. (Here you can see how to make colors).
And as I said before, blue is a relaxing color (the cold part of the circle), while red is not a relaxing warm color (the hot part of the circle); Thus, the most relaxing purple tones are those in which there is more blue pigmentation in the mixture of blue and red, resulting in purple, lilac or lavender tones, very relaxing colors.
Especially if they are combined with white, as we see above these lines. Although this is not mandatory, as we see below.
If you like this color, the Bruguer Japan shade is available, which you can buy here. Soft, relaxing and radiant purple tone.
The color is combined with golden tones, which are not particularly relaxing, and yet the bedroom has a very relaxing atmosphere.

In this case, in addition to the relaxing color of lavender, it is combined with white and blue. And in order to give the bedroom warmth, tones of natural bedding, wood and plant fibers were added, so that a relaxing bedroom was obtained, but also comfortable.
Let’s move on to the next color.

Gray is an anti-color or neutral color par excellence. It doesn’t express much, leaving neutral finishes.
To take advantage of this color and make it relaxing, we need to support it or combine it with the right colors; especially white.
If combined with white, we can add virtually any shade of gray, which will create not only a relaxing bedroom, but also sophisticated and very modern.
Like the one we see above this passage, or the ones we can see below.
Medium gray tone
Medium tone gray is a very elegant color that fits perfectly and combines with all materials and other colors. And it has more presence than light gray. If you like this color, the tone of Bruguer Natural Pearl that you can buy here is perfect. Medium / elevated gray tone that does not clutter the space and is extremely elegant.
High gray tone

The truth is that the more we increase the tone, the darker and better the combined gray must go.
If you don’t want to take a risk, a pastel gray shade, like the first bedroom we saw, is a sure color.
Let’s look at more colors.

The pale pink color, although very delicate and has little saturation, is not in itself a relaxing color. But it creates an atmosphere so enveloping, soft and cozy, that I had to put it on this list of relaxing colors for the bedroom.

The colors we just saw are relaxing because, as I said, they are in the cold part of the color wheel (other than pink), not because I say so.
The Chromatic Circle is a magnificent guide for interpreting colors for any project we need.
It is obvious that there are many other colors that create a calm and peaceful ambience, such as sandy tones, beige and brown; but they are not in the cold part of the circle, but in the hot part, which tells us about them, that they are obviously warm colors.
This does not mean that they cannot be painted with them and achieve a relaxing atmosphere, but they are not the most effective either.
The relaxing colors for the bedroom, are the ones we just saw; or at least a good portion of them.
Do you have any doubts or suggestions? Would you add another color? I read you in the comments.
