The Best Bedroom Color Schemes
The beauty of green is that it can go with almost any accent color. If you want to create a natural atmosphere, pair leafy green hues with neutral tones. Warm neutrals are the perfect pairing for a green color scheme. Colors like beige and taupe can add a cozy touch while maintaining an air of refinement. Stick to warm metals like gold and bronze to avoid a space that looks too cool.
White Wall Décor
If you’re unsure which colors will enhance your green bedroom, white is a foolproof option. Off-white and ivory will balance a deep, emerald green. Plus, green and white work for any season. From winter to summer, keep your bedroom looking fresh all year long.
Bedroom Wall Art: Shapes & Layouts
A great way to accentuate your green-themed bedroom is to add a piece of wall art. You can either choose a piece of wall art that incorporates a matching green color, or a contrasting piece to add visual dimension. Once you decide on the purpose of your wall art, choose a layout that will match your desired aesthetic and style:
A Chic Classic: The Single-Panel Rectangle or Single-Panel Square
A Mix of Modern and Traditional: The Single-Panel Vertical Canvas or the Single-Panel Panoramic Canvas
Bold and Contemporary: The Triptych Tri-Panel Canvas or the Symmetrical Five-Panel Canvas
Eclectic and Playful: The 7-Piece Hexagonal Canvas Set
Feeling overwhelmed by options? The split two-piece canvas is our top trending layout. Consider a “definition typography” print with two panels, curated by our art director Tirzah Goodman.
“Any expert designer will tell you that the most common mistake homeowners make, is hanging their art too high. Large wall art should be hung at eye level. While it may seem low at first glance, eye-level artwork is a longstanding gallery standard. Your artwork should be in plain view, and blend seamlessly with the rest of your interior.”
Bedroom Wall Décor: Size Guide
No matter what kind of wall décor you choose to complement your green color scheme, selecting the right size is imperative. Follow these tips from our Ultimate Wall Decor Size Guide for a super simple reference:
“Your piece of bedroom wall art should take up about 60% to 75% of the overall empty wall space. This refers to the portion not covered by moldings or furniture. First, measure the height and width of the wall. Next, multiply the both of the measurements by 0.6 and 0.75. This will give you the range of canvas print sizes to suit your sleeping space.
Wall art that you want to hang over furniture, such as a fireplace, a bed or a loveseat should be between 2/3 and 3/4 of the furniture's width. To measure the ideal art size above your furniture, consider this example: If your headboard is about 5 feet wide, multiply it by 0.66 and 0.75 to get the best canvas height and width.”
Stylish Geometric Wall Décor
A green color palette demands equally stylish accessories. One of our newest décor collections is titled, “Geometric Wall Art Sets.” Curated by Tirzah Goodman, these multi-panel prints are reminiscent of Mid-century designs with a contemporary twist. Choose a canvas set that includes various shades of green to elevate your overall color palette. Sharp lines and dynamic shapes are a great way to add visual dimension and maintain a modern look in your bedroom.
Green Accent Walls for Bedrooms
If you don’t want to commit to painting your entire bedroom green, an accent wall is the perfect solution. Paint one wall in your bedroom for a pop of color that won’t take over your space. Make sure to choose a vibrant shade of green for maximum contrast. Add cozy, neutral textiles to your bed for a comfortable and welcoming look. Pepper green throughout your space to tie in the accent wall, and accessorize with elements like live greenery.
