This dual personality allows greige paint colors to coordinate with ease, creating a harmonious color space. This is one of Sherwin-Williams most popular paint colors because of its versatility.

Sherwin-Williams' Window Pane walks the color line between blue and green, but definitely leans toward green. This is a muted and soft green that is the ultimate soothing paint color.

Soothing Beige Soft, neutral beige provides a versatile canvas for layering any number of looks. Earthy, laid-back designs with minimalist leanings are currently trending and work beautifully with this particular hue. Think off-white linen sheets, a sheepskin rug, wooden bedside tables, and a punch of greenery.    Paint Color: Stone Hearth by Benjamin Moore

ae design 5. Lavender. This isn’t your teenager’s purple bedroom. A muted lavender wall color is a sophisticated option for a master bedroom. Purple hues are thought to be stress-reducing, so this super soft one is sure to lend a calming aura. It’s definitely a chilly hue, though, so think about how you can counter that coolness with warm wood floors or a warm-hued carpet.

Arcadia Custom Homes & Renovations 3. Icy blue. In the quest for colors that soothe and relax, I always recommend turning to nature for inspiration. One such hue is the color of the sky on a crisp, clear day. This is one of my favorite bedroom shades for folks who want something a little more colorful than gray but don’t want anything too dark. Look for a light blue with just a hint of gray to avoid a pastel baby blue that’s more appropriate for a nursery.

Turner Pocock 4. Soft neutral green. Think sage, celery or a light pistachio hue. These are also colors taken from nature, and being surrounded by them while inside your home can elicit feelings of serenity and contentment. What I like about these greens is that you can go with a barely there whisper of color, and it still feels grounded and elegant and not at all pastel. Again, the trick is to find a green that has a good bit of gray in it.
