5 Winter color palettes for your bedroom
With the weather turning colder by the day, how do you plan to keep warm? Some may look to extra layers for warmth, while others will style their homes with colors that are cozy for the season. Here are five options you should consider for your bedroom.
Considered by some as a winter white, ecru is a creamy off-white color that is quite relaxing. Pairing well with warm and cooler tones, this is an elegant hue that will help expand the natural light around your room. Use ecru as a standalone color for a monochromatic scene, or alongside other colors for winter excitement. Regardless of your decision, this is a very popular color for the season.

Those interested in a darker neutral can indulge in wolf gray. A medium tone in the gray family, this color is warm enough to anchor the room while softly blending into the snowy exterior landscape. Wolf gray is a wonderful choice for the bedroom as its subtlety works well against cooler tones and even other neutrals, like brown and ecru. When using this gray, be cautious not to pair it with too rich or strong of a color, as the contrast could make the colors work against each other.
