Gleco Paint - Bedroom shades

When it comes to serenity in your sleeping quarters, we’ll lay it down: the bedroom is meant to be a dreamy oasis; a calming and comfortable retreat; a relaxation station designed especially for you to unplug and power down. 

Color is the best way to create some seriously soothing ambiance in the boudoir. “It’s not just plush pillows and cozy throws that create a tranquil environment; wall color can have a big impact on the overall feel of the room,” said Benjamin Moore color and design expert Hannah Yeo recently.  

The pros also know that cooler hues feel right at home in spaces where you most want to chill out. These colors promote relaxation, reduce stress and anxiety, slow heart rate and improve sleep quality. And isn’t that exactly what we’re going for in the place we go to relax and rejuvenate?

This peaceful-themed palette from Benjamin Moore will surely inspire you to turn your bedroom’s blank canvas into blissfully cozy sanctuary. Say goodbye to tension and hello to a good night’s sleep, starting with a visit to our in-store experts for design tips and clever ideas on tackling your bedroom paint project.
