The power of colour is not to be underestimated when it comes to bedrooms. It can play a big part in our mood; with the ability to calm, energise or bring joy, as well as offering the chance to get creative and let your personality shine through.

The bedroom is the first room we see in the morning, so getting the atmosphere right in this important space is crucial. Choosing and investing in the right furniture is the initial step in creating a haven. Our fitted wardrobes come in timeless, neutral finishes, allowing you to easily make seasonal, trend-based changes to the colour palette throughout the rest of the room.
Here’s our roundup of the bedroom colour trends you need to know about for 2019 and how you can bring a little colour to your bedroom:
In December, Pantone announced that its colour of the year for 2019 will be ‘Living Coral’. So, for an on-trend bedroom, now is the time to add a pop of energising coral.
Coral can be transitioned with ease into a neutral bedroom through changeable soft furnishings such as bedding, or a statement piece of art that can act as a focal point for the room.
Brown tones have been out of favour in recent years in place of the Scandinavian, all white colour palette. This year, Dulux is stepping outside of the Scandi box and has announced its colour of the year as ‘Spiced Honey’.
Hammonds stylist Dannielle Williams recommends pairing this earthy Dulux tone with the cashmere gloss finish of our Elkin range for a contemporary look, while the Rialto Square in a White Ash finish will provide a traditional edge to this palette.
The popularity of plants is continuing to grow throughout home interiors, and this has transitioned to bedroom colour schemes. It seems that deep green is quickly becoming the new grey.
Paint one wall in a moody, dark green and style with brass fittings to add a modern luxe twist – and don’t forget the plants. Not only do they look great and introduce quirky ceramics into the room, but they're also great for purifying the air, and even have mental health benefits.
Orange, in its many guises, will be a true 2019 colour staple. From burnt orange to terracotta, and pops of true bright orange, there are many ways to incorporate it into your bedroom.
Pinterest has reported that searches for terracotta walls are up 86% in the UK. If a subtle, paired down look is your chosen aesthetic, earthy terracotta hues are the perfect nature-inspired update for bedroom walls.
If more of a statement is required, try accessorising with cheerful accents. Blending colour with fabrics is the perfect way to bring life to the bedroom. Velvet is another significant trend for 2019; so if space permits, combine the two and opt for a chair that will stand out and bring joy with every use.
