Your bedroom should be your very own retreat where you relax and unwind at the end of a long day. But if yours is in need of a design shake-up, why not transform your room with colour?


As your bedroom is usually for your eyes only, it’s a great place to be creative and show your personality through your décor.


Whatever your style, we’ve collated 25 gorgeous combinations that are sure to get your creative juices flowing. So read on and update your space with these inspiring two-colour combinations.


1. Terracotta and Pale Pink

Terracotta and pink are a dream combination for warm and cosy bedrooms. The deeper tones of terracotta help ground pale pink, preventing it from looking too sweet. Create a cocooning feel by continuing the deeper colour onto your ceiling.


2. Beige and White

Beige is back with a bang. It’s an increasingly popular choice for bedrooms, providing a warm and welcoming alternative to the cool greys that have dominated interiors recently.


Mix beige and white in your space for a serene and earthy space you can’t wait to curl up in.


3. Teal and White

Teal and white make for a sophisticated bedroom. Paint the lower halves of your walls teal to add depth and create impact. Use a warm white on the upper halves of your walls and ceiling to reflect light and bring height.


Choose a white with a drop of pink to create a warming contrast against teal.


4. Pink and White

Famed for its calming properties, pink is a wonderful choice for bedrooms. Choose a warm, dusky pink and pair it with white to create a soothing space.


Split your walls, painting the lower half pink and the upper half white for a contemporary and grown-up finish.


5. Shades of Blue

Shades of blue make for a tranquil vibe in this bedroom. Combining different shades of the same colour is a fantastic trick to add depth to your space.


Create a soothing space by adding a mid-green-blue to the lower part of your walls and combine with a lighter hue above.


6. Beige and Rust

This natural colour pallet is perfect for creating your own boho sanctuary. Paint your walls a pale beige up to picture-rail height to open your space up. Paint above with a rich rust for a cosy and earthy finish.


7. Blue and White

Sky blue and white form a gorgeous partnership in this bedroom. Cool and fresh, they create a tranquil and inviting room. Make an impact by painting everything below picture-rail height blue – even your bedroom door and skirting boards.


Paint above white to balance the blue and enhance the feeling of space.


8. Yellow and Pink

Merge yellow and pink to make a fun and exciting space. Choose a deep-hued yellow and paint your upper walls and ceiling for a bold, high-impact look. Paint your lower walls a pale, warm-based pink to complement the warm tones of the yellow.


9. Grapefruit and Mint

This look is giving us all the ice cream parlour vibes. Balance bright grapefruit tones with cool mint green. Use the colour blocking technique on your walls to combine the two and create a playful and contemporary space.


10. Black and White

You can’t beat monochrome for a cool and contemporary space. Panel the lower halves of your wall and paint your panels black to create a timeless and sophisticated aesthetic. Paint your upper walls a cool, crisp white to lift the space and reflect light.


11. Pale Green and Pink

Pastel greens and pinks are known for calming properties, so it’s no surprise they make a gorgeous partnership in this bedroom. Experiment with colour blocking on your walls to add a modern and playful twist to your sleep space.


12. White and Yellow

Bring the sunshine in with yellow and white walls. We love this idea that brings a subtle pop of yellow. Get the look by choosing a deep yellow-pink and painting above your picture rail. Keep the rest of your walls and ceiling white for a fresh look.


13. Shades of Green

Mix two shades of green for a tranquil and relaxed bedroom you can’t wait to get home to. Paint your lower walls a deep hue of green to create depth, and use a paler green on your upper walls to enhance the feeling of space.


Paint your woodwork, too, for a seamless look.


14. Peach and Pastel Blue

Choose complementary colours like peach and pastel blue for a style that pops.


Add personality with a unique colour-blocking design on your main wall. For instance, you could use the paint to extend the look of a headboard on the walls.


15. Terracotta and Grey

Deep terracotta is the perfect partner to grey in this relaxed bedroom. The warm grey tones highlight the richness of the red, creating a calm and earthy space.


Make the perfect backdrop to a boho bed by painting your walls terracotta and grey. Bring in rattan and natural wood furniture and accessories to add contrast.


16. Pink and Grey

Create a luxurious and inviting bedroom with pink and grey walls. Pink is like a cosy hug at the end of a long day – it’s the perfect counter to grey’s cool tones, helping to create a sense of warmth.


Choose pale pink for your walls up to picture-rail height and add pale grey above. Install panelling to add extra character to your space.


17. Red and Green

Embrace traditional, period styling by painting your bedroom walls deep red and green. Here, the crimson adds drama and warmth, while the deep green helps to ground the space.


Use a half-wall of green panelling to add depth and texture and paint above in a rich red.


18. Navy and White

Create timeless elegance by combining navy with white on your bedroom walls. Make a modern feature wall by installing navy Jacobean-style panelling on one wall.


Then, paint your remaining walls white to add contrast and complement your scheme with crisp white bedding for a luxurious finish.


19. Aqua and White

Choose aqua and white to bring colourful holiday vibes to your bedroom every day. Create a stunning feature by painting your main wall aqua and complement this with white paint on the other walls.


Here, the white-painted floorboards are a great finishing touch to really let the aqua pop.


20. Orange and White

Add a vibrant colour pop by pairing tangerine with crisp white. Make a contemporary feature by painting a large stripe of orange around the centre of your room.


Decorate with bold artwork and woven wall-hangings to blend the colours.


21. Dark Green and White

Make a connection with the outside world by combining dark green and white. Because it’s found in nature, deep green is particularly effective for creating a soothing feeling in bedrooms.


Use a fresh white on your upper walls and woodwork to bring contrast.


22. White and Terracotta

Bring life to white walls with a splash of warming terracotta. Extend your headboard by installing terracotta panelling on your main wall behind the bed, or create a contemporary colour block by extending the paint onto your ceiling.


23. Purple and Yellow

Looking for a high-impact look? Create a super bold statement with purple and yellow on your bedroom walls. They’re complementary colours, so they always look great together.


Show your artistic side with a hand-painted design on one wall, introducing both colours.


24. Grey and White

If you’re a fan of pared-back colour pallets, it’s hard to beat grey and white. The ever-popular duo is a great choice for cool and modern bedrooms. For a unique look, use grey and white paint to create a watercolour ombre effect on your walls.


Use a deep grey at the bottom and gradually build up to white at the top. When you head off to dreamland, you’ll think you’re in the clouds.


25. Mint and White

We’re mad for this gorgeous mint and white combination. Decidedly fresh yet inviting, mint is a soothing colour for your very own sanctuary. Make a feature by painting your main wall mint three-quarters of the way up.


Paint your walls and ceiling a crisp white and bring in pops of mint through your accessories.


How do I Choose a Colour Combination?

When choosing colours, think about the space you have, including its size and the amount of natural light. If your bedroom doesn’t enjoy much natural light, choose paler colours to help brighten the space.


Invest in a mix of samples and make sure you test colours by lamplight, too, as this will change how your colours look.


Which Colour Combination Is Best?

Your bedroom is your own escape from the world, so anything goes – decorate your room how you like and it’ll never go out of style. Choose a colour combination that reflects your personality and tastes for a space you long to retreat to.


Bright and bold colours will add life, while pastel colours create a sense of calm. Choose dark hues like navy, deep greens and reds for a cosy and cocooned feel.


Which Two Colour Combination Makes a Room Look Bigger and Brighter?

White is a good choice for enhancing the sense of light and space. Combine white with beige, pale grey or a pastel colour for a scheme that’s sure to brighten your room.


But because white reflects light, it can help to lift the space even when paired with deeper hues.
