2022 Bedroom Colour Trends

The art of colour psychology is based on the idea that the colours we surround ourselves with play a dynamic role in our lives.

Colours that are bright and warm make us feel happy, while dark and muted colours make us feel sad. Additionally, colours can inspire, energise, and empower us, and equally, they can sap our strength and make us feel trapped.

Your bedroom colour scheme is more important than any other in your home because it is the last and first room you see in the day.

The theme for 2022 is new beginnings, changing the way we live in the face of climate change and the cost of living crisis. Bedroom colour trends reflect this, with happy colours, lots of neutrals and lighter shades of favourites.

Here are the bedroom colours that will dominate in 2022:

Popular individual colours

English sage

English sage saw a resurgence in 2021, and it will remain popular in 2022 for bedroom feature walls. It’s a popular colour for kitchen cupboards because it’s homely and warm, yet interesting enough to give spaces character.

Mustard yellow

Mustard yellow is eternally popular as an accent colour for cushions and rugs, but it also makes a fantastic feature wall colour. The medium yellow is neither bright nor dark, giving bedrooms a positive and calm character.


The most popular colour trends in 2022 will be grey-lavender and pastel blues with mint, with both delivering a dose of freshness to popular colourways. Dark colours are out, and airy colours are in, with neutrals playing a bigger role.

Experimenting with colour is a fun project, but make sure to buy tester pots to get your colour scheme perfect before buying tins of paint. Wallpaper is another option if you want textures, patterns or embossing.
