Green is the color most sought after for bedrooms, since it promotes a feeling of calm and represents tranquility. These emotions are perfect for relaxing and getting rid of stress, so it is no surprise that they are often chosen for bedrooms and bathrooms. If you are hoping to bring some peace into your life as you remodel your master bedroom or guest room, creating calm in a sage green bedroom is the perfect starting point.
That is not to say that you should feel like you must paint the entire room in sage green in order to add calm and serenity to your space. On the other hand, you should make sure that it is the prominent color in the room, or at least one of the colors most stated, so that the emotions it evokes are the most noticeable when you enter the room. Here are some tips for creating calm in a green bedroom subtly and with class:
Paint the walls in a soft sage green. This neutral color works well as a wall color, especially when paired with a white ceiling and natural wood finish for the floor. Whether you are hoping to sell the home or simply to make it beautiful, neutrals are a classic look that suits most décor styles. You can add bright spots of color through accessories, such as rugs, bed linens, lampshades, and pillows.
Complement a neutral wall with a sage green curtain. If you have chosen a different neutral for the walls, such as a pale tan, white, pastel blue, or yellow, then sage green curtains are a beautiful addition to the décor. This adds the right touch of peace and calm without taking away from the other focal points in the room. Maximize the natural lighting in the room with gauzy material, and add depth with a patterned curtain tieback. Darker walls should be accessorized with lighter sage shades to brighten the room and chase the oppression away.
Dress the bed in sage green linens of different shades. Sage green is not one simple color, but rather a multi-faceted shade that you can use to dress the entire bed without using the same facet twice. If the wall shade is light, use your lightest shade for the sheets, darkening with each layer, until darkest is on top (or in accent pillows). This is another way to add depth to the room. The opposite is true if the wall shade is dark; start with the darkest shade and work lighter.
Accessorize in shades of sage green. This is one of the simplest ways to create calm in a sage green bedroom. Decorate the room in neutral or cool shades, and add accessories and accents in various shades of cool sage green. Contrasts add life to the room, such as always pairing light with dark, but there is nothing wrong with a completely light feel to the room either. If you choose to decorate in warmer shades, stick to the warmer sage hues so that the room is balanced, peaceful, and beautiful.
