Panelled bedrooms are a huge trend in 2021 and will continue to be popular in 2022. If you’re thinking about renovating your bedroom to include panelling, it’s also important to think about the colour scheme of your room as well. Best colours to use are dark and neutral tones to create depth and style in your bedroom. 

We love this panelled bedroom by @end_of_the_row that uses an effortless grey/blue paint to create a statement look on the walls. Introducing texture furnishings like wooden bed stands, glow lighting and velvet fabrics adds to the warmth of the room to create that relaxing look and feel.

Painting your bedroom walls in soft pink is a great way to give your room a neutral canvas. This bedroom by 

@riponhouse1887 shows us how soft pink can be used to create a zen bedroom space. We love the gallery wall that adds a personal touch to the room, as well as the carefully selected accessories that bring the look together. 

Pink is associated with calmness and femininity and can transform your bedroom to reflect these emotions and express your personality. By choosing soft pink colours,  your space can be layered with darker colours to introduce even more warmth and depth.

Earthy colours are great for creating a relaxing ambience in the bedroom. Opt for colours that match well together in nature, like this beige and blue bedroom idea that uses a soft sand colour on the walls and blue/grey sky colour for the panelling. 

Both colours work well together and contrast effortlessly for a bold look. We love how the furnishings and accessories play well, like the patterned pillows, white furniture and plants that bring in the nature element.

When done properly, black and grey can add elegance and sophistication to the bedroom. This charcoal and grey bedroom idea by @tonjebjerknes shows us how it’s done with bold walls and crisp bedding. 

If you’re painting your walls dark like charcoal or black, always dress your space with mirrors and use bright lighting to make your space feel open and airy. Breaking up your space with white and cream furnishings will add contrast and depth to your space.

Create a warm and zen bedroom by using coral colours, which expresses optimism and femininity (similar to orange). The brightness of coral will instantly make your bedroom pop, just like this bedroom idea by  @montyroadabode that reminds us of a summer oasis.  We love how the blank white walls have been transformed with coral paint to create an accent wall. Furthermore, the colours are followed through on the bedding to create a statement look to complete the room.
