The best colors for bedding are neutral...
A bedroom should be a place to get away from the stress of your everyday life. Rest and recovery is very important and psychological studies have proven that colors do indeed have an impact on this process. Meanwhile, the color of the bed linens, sheets, duvet covers and pillow shams also have a similar impact.
There are certain colors and color relationships which are considered to be an irritant to the eyes. They can cause headaches and essentially wreak havoc on our vision. But there are other colors and color combinations that have the adverse effect and are actually very soothing.
That means the appropriate use of color can maximize productivity, minimize visual fatigue, and simply relax the entire body. So what color is the worst offender?
Take a look at the leading luxury linen manufacturers in Europe, with the exception of France, and you will find the majority of their luxury linen collections are produced in white, ivory and light brown/taupe color palettes.
Luxury Linens come in many different colors, but most luxury collections are white, ivory and soft-light brown. It should also be noted that approximately 90% of the bed linens that are sold in the U.S. are white or ivory. We believe that’s because neither of those colors are offensive to the eye. Those colors have also withstood the test of time, making for easy decorating and they never go out of style.
There is something elegant about an all-white bed. It is pristine and resembles purity. It is also pleasant and welcoming. That does not mean a pure white bed is for everyone. But if you do prefer this choice, buying bedding accessories will be a much simpler task. You could also transform the look by changing or adding a few shams, decorative pillows and a throw.
The bed pictured below is still a bit neutral, although adding a stronger-colored throw or decorative pillows would change the look of the entire room.
