Similar hues and different washes bring a bright element as well as contrast to this contemporary bedroom. The hardwood floors and wooden furniture act as the base color. Light orange provides an excellent match in this room. To duplicate this look, start with a base color in your room, and then find similar colors to offset.

Bright lights and walls can form the basis of a beautiful bedroom. Here, pink brings a sparkle to the walls, patterned pillows and window treatments bring texture to the room, and the plush white bedding looks enticing and welcoming after a long day. Brighten your room with a fun wall color. If covering the whole space seems a bit daunting, consider painting just one wall, to make it the focal point of the room.

Pretty in Pink

For a more feminine style, pink is an ideal decorating color. Here, the bright pink is found on the area rug and on the design above the bed, whereas the majority of the room is completed with a creamy color palette. However, the burst of pink on the wall design and on the floor brings a spark of color to the room. Create a similar look in your room with a bright area rug that brings life to the room. Finish the room with more subtle hues.
