In the spirit of 1970s design, fashion, colours and textiles, we’ve curated nine earthen examples of interior paint to evoke calm and warmth in the bedroom.
Once an often overlooked shade in the world of colour, brown has made a resurgence in the design sphere as we move from the harshness of black and grey and look to more deep, grounding colours. Brown is a colour composed of several others, making it incredibly adaptive and versatile. When paired with tones like lilac and green, brown becomes the focal point of the room. When paired with similar tones, including terracotta, beige and camel, a sense of harmony and cosiness is created. We’ve brought together a collection of nine brown, beige and rust interior paint colours for the bedroom, from textural grey-browns to limewash dusty-brown hues.
A mid-greige tone one small step from a pure grey, Tint One Giant Leap is the perfect balance of warm and cool undertones and works wonders in small spaces with minimal light.
Balance is part of the House of Grey x Bauwerk collaboration – a collection developed to bring a deeper connection to the spaces we create. Balance is a warm taupe hue, ideal for inviting rich yet subtle colour into the bedroom.
Wheat, a soft beige limewash paint by Bauwerk, reacts to changing light conditions; warm in the sun with a cooler undertone in certain light.
Pumpernickle by Murobond is a deep eggplant paint that feels at home with deep natural tones and textures such as walnut wood and tanned leather.
Designed to develop an ‘aged’ look over time, New Earth by Haymes is a dynamic brown paint with a malleable finish and tactile appearance.
Meerkat by Dulux is the quintessential coffee-brown that makes it an ideal candidate for the feature wall in a master suite.
Bauwerk’s Dusk is a dusty rose-brown paint and incorporates a soft, feminine aesthetic while pairing well with deeper brown and beige shades.
More of a ginger-brown, Cracked Leather by The Society Inc is part of the brand’s Foundation collection, grounding a space through its solid neutral colour base and texture.
Part of their neutrals and browns collection, Bullwhip by Porter’s Paints is an energetic burnt orange that symbolises joy and wellness.
