Create a Zen Bedroom in Blue or Green or Both

When you want to create a peaceful, Zen bedroom, I can’t think of more restful colors than blue or green. According to Colors Explained, blue is the most calming color, followed closely by green. Some studies show that the color blue can lower blood pressure and reduce anxiety.

Green is closely associated with nature and is used as a healing color in color therapy. Also, green strikes the eye in such a way that it requires no adjustment. Red, on the other hand, is another story. So it makes sense that either green or blue or perfect color choices for creating a Zen bedroom.

Wrap around windows invite nature indoors and make you feel like you’re sleeping in the tree tops. A blue upholstered headboard makes a soothing complement to the greenery outside, while a jute rug lends a bit of texture.

  1. All these bedrooms are lovely. My master has had medium blue walls for a long time and I still love the color. It’s an east facing bedroom so gets wonderful morning light. I use a pale yellow coverlet spring and summer with pillows having blues, yellows and a bit of green. All trim is white. It’s my cozy space.

  2. What a beautiful assortment of bedrooms, I love that green in the last one, so pale and pretty.

  3. I’ve long loved the combo of green and blue and I agree that they are calming in the right shades. Definitely nature’s neutrals! These are gorgeous rooms!
