Choosing the right bedroom paint colors to match your vibe is crucial for creating the ultimate sleeping oasis. We’ve teamed up with our friends at Paintzen, a revolutionary service that makes it quick and easy to get your apartment painted at a great price, to pick the perfect paint color to compliment our favorite Dormify rooms.

1. Malibu Mood

With lots of cheerful accent colors already present in the room, you won’t want to bring anything that could potentially clash. A deep blue-gray accent wall, such as Benjamin Moore’s Deep Secret, could serve as a gorgeous backdrop to your furniture or decor. It’s like your favorite pair of jeans – just hanging on the walls.


Try it in a flat or matte finish for something very grounding. Want something a little more fun? Match a pale pink to your pillows, like Benjamin Moore’s Pleasing Pink, and paint the back of shelves or the inside of your closets for a surprise pop of color!


2. Babe Cave

Bright white comforters and gold decor practically scream for navy blue walls! One of our current favorites is Benjamin Moore’s Old Navy. Whether you go all out or opt for just an accent wall, a deep navy will provide beautiful contrast to the white furniture and will make metallic pieces pop.


Don’t feel like painting the full wall? Go two-tone! By painting the bottoms of the walls navy and leaving the top half white, the room will seem to expand upwards, making ceilings feel taller.


3. Palm Desert

Neutrals are very “in” – but you don’t have to stick with white walls to benefit from them. By painting walls a gray with warm undertones like Silver Fox or even a playful, feminine shade like Mauve Mist, you can stay within a neutral color palette without the room feeling too plain.


Want to go bolder on the walls? Try a deep purple! It’s very “in” with interior designers, so you’ll be ahead of the curve when you add an accent wall in this fun, fruity shadePurplicious!


2. Brooklyn Loft

If you’re going for a relaxed and casual vibe, the best way to make the color in your decor and furniture stand out is by sticking to a beautiful and clean white on your walls.


Try a crisp, bright white like Chantilly Lace or something creamier like White Chocolate in either flat or eggshell finish to create the perfect backdrop for your space. Sometimes, less is more.
