A bedroom is a uniquely personal space that should be welcoming and relaxing, but it should also be a place that inspires and encourages beautiful dreams.
It’s the one room in the house that you can turn to for respite and personal space, so it’s important that this space reflects who you are and also convey your own personal style. This is easy if you’re single, but what happens when you have to share that space with your partner whose personal taste and style is vastly different to yours?
Don’t worry, there is a solution. Rather than having one colour that dominates the room, consider combining a palette of colours that work well together. This will be the easiest way to create a colour scheme that you will both be happy with.

Bedroom Colour Trends 2017
In the last year we have seen a marked increase in the use of colour being applied to bedrooms. That wave of white minimalist, Scandinavian inspired style that we all know and loved has slowly been replaced by rich, bolder tones that evoke a sense of warmth and cosiness.
We spoke to Interior Designer and Taubmans Brand Ambassador, Shaynna Blaze about which colour combinations can work successfully in a shared master bedroom.
“Selecting colours for a bedroom as a couple is always about creating the balance of masculine and feminine, and the trends this year have made it a whole lot easier.
Soft green and grey palettes, or differing levels of blush and mauves are the perfect combination of strength, tranquility and softness that also work just as well in single bedrooms”. Shaynna Blaze | Taubmans Brand Ambassador
Bedroom Colour Inspiration
Taking cues from Shaynna’s advice we have put together two colour schemes that beautifully maintain that balance of masculinity and femininity, while creating a sense of calm and wellbeing in the bedroom.
Ink Navy & Rose Quartz
This first colour palette includes a contrasting combination of Inky and Navy hues offset by subtle shades of rose quartz and blush pinks. These midnight tones are inspired by deep, vast oceans and softened by pastel, petal pinks.
The colour pink encourages unconditional love and nurturing, while navy is a masculine colour associated with trust, loyalty and sincerity. Together they create the perfect Yin and Yang.
