When selecting paint colors for bedrooms, the first thing to consider is temperature. While warm colors advance toward the eye and appear more active, creating a stimulating effect, cool colors — the hues from blue green through blue violet, most grays included — tend to recede, producing a more calming and relaxing effect. That said, there’s a lot of variation on the cool color spectrum; a bright green and a pale blue can create spaces with drastically different vibes.
