These small bedroom paint colors are all beautiful in their own unique ways. I love every single one of them, and curated this list for you so that you can find a paint color that you fall in love with.
This post is all about small bedroom paint colors. Let’s get started!
1. Sweet Melon by Benjamin Moore
This color with instantly make a room feel brighter and happier. It has an open feel, and it brings a playful and creative energy to a room. You might be thinking “it’s crazy to paint a room orange” and I would say maybe it is!! But it’s so fun. It’s so beautiful. And it has such a positive impact on a small space.
Growing up, my younger sister’s bedroom was painted this orange color. My mom used the orange as inspiration for the blue and orange quilt on my sister’s bed, and she added hues of blue throughout the space to counter the orange. They complimented each other perfectly, so I will always think of this color first when I think of a small bedroom.
Also, I wish that I could have found better pictures to represent the Benjamin Moore paint colors on this list, but this was the most accurate way to display the colors. The Farrow & Ball and Clare Paint colors have slightly better photos, but don’t let that fool you. Benjamin Moore is my go to for any paint project. I love the other two brands as well, but I had to point that out so that you give the Benjamin Moore colors a fair chance, too 😊.
2. Plum Royale by Benjamin Moore
This gorgeous plum color will transform a small bedroom into a cozy haven. It’s such a rich and beautiful color. It gives soothing and safe energy and makes a small bedroom a perfect place to recharge.
I love the coziness of this color, but it definitely will not make your room feel bigger. It’s a color that accentuates the snug and quaint vibe of a room. Tread with some caution with a color this powerful, but also know that you can use it to paint a chair or a bookcase as a way of bringing that warm energy into your space.
3. Swiss Coffee by Benjamin Moore
If you like to keep things simple, airy, and open, this is the color for you. Swiss Coffee is a classic Benjamin Moore color that is a warm white. It will give your space that light airiness that white paint has, without being harsh or sterile. It’s warm, like frothy milk on the top of a delicious latte.
When in doubt, this is a very safe choice that will make your small bedroom feel bigger and more open. You can always make things more exciting with textiles, art, and decor, and this color provides a beautiful and timeless backdrop for that.
4. Soft Fern by Benjamin Moore
Soft Fern is a beautiful sage green color that is extremely light and airy. It’s a great way to bring color into a space while still feeling open. It’s a dusty, muted green.
This green is great for a small bedroom because it balances feminine and masculine extremely well. Few colors can act almost as a neutral, and this green can. I am someone who adores color, so I had to include Soft Fern in this list of small bedroom paint colors because it’s such a versatile choice but it still adds in some color.
5. Sulking Room Pink by Farrow & Ball
If you love pink as much as I do, this is for you. This versatile pink color has deep, rich mauve undertones. Farrow & Ball calls it “a romantic and muted rose.” Absolutely delightful.
The coziness that this pink has is unmatched. It is so warm, soft, and feminine. I adore this color because it is a pink that has so much to it. You will love how warm and cozy this makes your small bedroom feel. It also matures really well if you have a little girl and are eager to use pink.
6. Oval Room Blue by Farrow & Ball
This is the coziest blue. It has a historic feel, but can pair with contemporary design to provide a harmonious balance as well. Definitely keep in mind that this blue can be a chameleon color. With so many different undertones, it will look different depending on the space it’s in and how much natural light it gets.
Oval Room Blue pairs really well with grays and other cool tones. It’s a great compliment to a neutral color palette as well. Keep in mind that this is a mid blue color. It’s not quite a dark blue or a light blue, it sits in between. This color is a really interesting one.
Like most of these colors, I would recommend getting a sample of it and testing it out on the wall first before you order a lot of paint. You definitely will want to see what undertones this color picks up in your space so you know what it will look like.
7. Brassica by Farrow & Ball
It was only right to include a cozy purple in here, and Brassica is the perfect soft purple to make a small bedroom feel cozy and like a sweet safe haven. It’s a lavender with some sophistication and edge to it. And I love that about it, because it makes it feel so unique.
This is a color that could work well in any small space because of the personality it brings to a room. It’s fun without being overwhelming. Purple works really well in a small space because it keeps the color contained, but it makes the room that it’s in feel really special and unique.
8. Penthouse by Clare Paint
It’s time to talk about some more neutrals, because I know that color isn’t always the right move for a small bedroom. Sometimes in order to make it feel bigger and brighter, you need a bright and beautiful gray. That’s exactly where Penthouse comes in. It’s one of Clare Paint’s bestsellers for a reason.
It feels bright without feeling cold because it blends warm and cool tones perfectly. This grey color will open up your room and instantly make it feel bigger.
Also – I saved my two favorite grays for last (the other one is number 10 😊). So don’t worry if you don’t think color is going to work for you! I think you will love one of these grays, and there’s always Swiss Coffee to go back to if white is what you need.
9. Deep Dive by Clare Paint
Indulge in Deep Dive, this gorgeous dark blue. It’s super cozy and a little bit masculine, making a small bedroom feel like a wonderful hideaway. It has great customer reviews, too.
It’s rare to find a blue that has warmth to it, but this one does. And it’s a true dark blue. It feels indulgent and luxurious, and strikes all of the right notes if you were considering going for a darker color.
10. Windy City by Clare Paint
The final color on this list of small bedroom paint color ideas is none other than Windy City by Claire Paint. I love Clare Paint because it has a curated selection of paints colors so that you don’t feel overwhelmed when you’re picking out paint for your walls. Sometimes too many choices is way too much to choose from.
I love how cozy, light, and open this color is. It’s a beautiful gray for a small bedroom with a big window, because it will have a cozy feel without feeling dark and dreary. It’s a beautiful gray color, and I think you might love it as much as I do.
Well, that’s the end of this list!
