A mix of warm colors can turn any bedroom into a cozy retreat that can wrap you in comfort as you settle into bed at the end of a long day. Such colors can help take the chill off north- or east-facing rooms, and they're good choices in rooms with small windows or no windows.

Warm colors don't have to be dark. For example, yellow and peach are warm, even in pale shades. There are even warm "whites," such as buttercream and vanilla. In general, muted shades of warm colors are a good choice if you don't want to be overwhelmed by color in your bedroom.

Some of the best warm color schemes are borrowed from sunsets. Sunny yellows, pinks and oranges can be used alone or together to add warmth to any room. Subtle tints of these colors work well if you want to brush them on all of your bedroom walls. If you like a brighter shade, consider painting just one accent wall with a warm color, and paint your other walls white.

Waking up in a yellow bedroom can feel like waking up to sunshine no matter what the weather is doing outside. The same is true for some shades of orange. Choose a shade in soft buttery yellow or muted gold, which look beautiful with nearly any style of furniture.

Brown, which can be considered neutral or warm, conveys comfort. Choices range from deep espresso to auburn to pale latte. You can go as dark or muted as you desire. Deep brown can work well in a room with large windows. Balance a darker shade with fabrics, rugs and other accessories that provide a touch of light or bright color. Brown also looks good with other warm colors, such as orange or lime green, or even some shades of purple.

Red is a warm color that appeals to many people, but some find it overpowering for the bedroom. If you love red, consider a muted shade; if you want a true red, try painting just one wall as an accent. Some red peeking from behind a headboard or wall art can give your bedroom the right amount of sizzle. You can also balance red walls with accessories and fabrics in white, black or neutral shades.

Even if you're going with a warm color scheme in your bedroom, you may want to bring in touches of cool tones to provide some balance to your look. Consider accents in aqua blue, turquoise or purple against a palette of yellow or orange shades. Just remember to keep these accents small, so that your warm bedroom remains a place of rest, not unrest.
