Cozy Color Schemes for Every Room

Create a warm and inviting atmosphere in any room of your home with one of these colorful looks from Better Homes & Gardens

Plum + Sand
In this snug bedroom, neutral basics – a dark wood bed frame and nightstand, tan walls, ivory chair, and duvet cover – cozy up with plum accents in the rug, blanket, pillow, curtains, and art. Purple can represent either cool or warm parts of the color spectrum, depending on the hue. Look for shades of purple that have a slightly red hue to pull out the warm tones in a room.

Blue + Green
Earthy shades of blue and green are an inviting mix for a welcoming room. Blues and greens find common ground in a cozy room when combined with khaki, beige, and dark brown. Rusty orange in the curtains and a gold-colored throw are the ideal layer for the chillier months ahead.

Aqua + Brown
Warm and soothing doesn't have to be boring. Faux bois wallpaper adds visual texture while the dark brown upholstered headboard adds warmth to the room. An aqua coverlet and crisp white sheets keep the room on the fresh side of cozy. A symmetrical arrangement of furniture and accent pieces furthers the calming mood of the room.

Salmon + Rose
The warm color palette in this enchanting bedroom begins with the walls. Paint in a deep, dusty taupe with whispers of rose creates a feeling of intimacy, while salmon-color silk taffeta draperies define the window and add sheen. A floral duvet on the bed blushes in shades of pink that are echoed in the painted lampshade.

Biscuit + Beige
A monochromatic look doesn't have to be boring. Decorated in various shades of cream and beige, this living room becomes interesting through the use of texture, shapely furnishings, and interesting decorative accents. Weathered metals, woven furniture, coral pieces, and pressed botanicals enhance the uncomplicated color scheme with tactile texture.
