Earth Tone Bedroom Colors and Ideas: Natural, Cozy, and Timeless

Earth tone bedrooms can be some of the most relaxing and timeless styles, but what do earth tone bedrooms really look like? “Earth tones” is a blanket statement that describes the subdued and elemental hues of nature in interior design.
Consider the greys of changing cloudy weather, rich and pastel greens inspired by the mixed foliage of forests, deep blues reminiscent of ocean hues, beiges inspired by sands, woods, and naturally dyed leathers.
Designers have embraced the earth tone trend for its calming consistency and the way it compliments the use of natural materials in furniture and structural features.
Check out these earth-tone inspired spaces to get an idea of how designers are using colors inspired by nature to breathe new life into existing homes:

It’s no secret that the ochre, mustard, rust, and clay color palette was a design staple of the 70s. It managed to completely take over homes by way of crushed velvet upholstery and shag carpeting. While many of the design preferences of the 70s remain in the past (for good reason), the earth tone color palette that draws on the deep yellows, oranges, and reds in nature, has certainly witnessed a resurgence in recent years. Still, the most common tendency in earth tone styling is to use sandy tan shades that blend seamlessly together and accent natural wooden furniture beautifully.

Add throw pillows to whatever room needs an extra dose of comfy. Filled with a fluffy faux-down insert, you don’t have to sacrifice comfort for style. Available in four sizes and all measurements are made without pillow insert.

Begin in the Bedroom

The bedroom has been described as the vacation spot of the home. It’s a room that can serve to be a small hideaway in an otherwise busy and unpredictable world of schedules and deadlines. Surprisingly, even a few small changes in your bedroom can alter the mood and aesthetic of your home.
The best way to begin introducing an earth tone color scheme to your home is in the room where you begin and end your day. This will give you a great idea of whether you want to extend the palette into the rest of your home.
Before you jump into selecting an earth-tone bedroom color scheme, there are a few things to consider.
One of the more challenging approaches to using earth tones is focusing on ocean blue-inspired hues or deep forest greens. 
Recently, the darker hues have made their way into the hearts of design lovers, and they balance beautifully with natural lighting, beige and ivory tones. Don’t be discouraged by the darker boldness of blue and green palettes; incorporating them into your home is a strategic way to modify mood and break up your spaces.
