Experiment with neutrals. Combine black, gray, white and brown with shades of blue and green. Create contrast between colors and use light to accentuate certain important spaces within the bedroom. If there’s little natural light to work with, make sure the room receives plenty of artificial lighting to liven up the dark colors.
