Now that 2019 is in full swing and you’re getting settled back into your classes and the typical day-to-day things, perhaps you’ve noticed a little something creeping up in the back of your mind – you’re totally sick of what your room looks like. Don’t worry – this happens to the best of us when we hit a new year and we start to get sick of the same-old-same-old, especially when it comes to what we see each and every day.
So how do you go about changing up your room without spending a fortune (since you’re back on a budget for school, anyway)? The easiest way is to add a fresh coat of paint to your walls! By adding a new color to your room, it will feel refreshed and entirely new, almost like you’ve never lived in it before.
Thinking of painting your room for the New Year? Here are the three top bedroom color trends for 2019 to help get you inspired to get going on this super easy DIY project.
FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO KEEP IT SIMPLE – RICH HAZELNUT
If you’re more of a no-nonsense kind of person who wants a simple update to the color of your room, opting for a warm hue such as Rich Hazelnut is the perfect choice for you. Not only does this color rarely go out of style, but also it is considered to be an easy-to-match neutral.
This new neutral color requires a minimal update to the rest of your décor and is also a great way to increase the amount of light your room captures, making it appear larger and brighter. Because of the warm undertones, Rich Hazelnut adds a soothing aspect to your room as well, keeping you comfortable and calm.
FOR THOSE WHO WANT A TOUCH OF OPULENCE – MUSTARD YELLOW
Really want to switch up your room color and make it feel more luxe and opulent? Mustard Yellow might just be the right option for you. Don’t let the name scare you away – this modern iteration of classic gold is often more muted than its food counterpart.
This bold and bright color is a great way to add unexpected light and brightness to your room without being overwhelming or causing you to feel stressed. Mustard Yellow also matches well with other rich colors, such as deep burgundy and plum, allowing you to switch up your décor with ease.
FOR THOSE WHO WANT A PERSONAL OASIS – PASTEL BLUE
Searching for a way to transform your room into a personal hideaway? The answer is simple – add a little pastel blue to your walls! This soothing color is calming in every way and is subtle enough to not overwhelm your other décor.
Cool pastel blues are perfect for making your room look and feel larger than it is, reflecting light and creating a light and airy yet expansive environment. This color also matches well with a wide variety of other hues, meaning that it won’t be hard to pick accent colors for your room and that it won’t clash with the other décor.
