Hi, my name is Erica Lugbill, and I own Lugbill Designs, a residential interior design and remodeling firm in Chicago. Today, I'm going to be covering how to choose paint colors for a bedroom without natural light. The easiest way to pick a fail proof color is to pick something that is light of course, and bright and airy, and that way it's not going to be too dark and make your bedroom feel like a dungeon or a cave. Here I have some beautiful light neutrals set out. You can do anything with these. If you paint all the walls, your bedding, and any pillows or accessories, the options are limitless. If you don't want to go the neutral route, here I have a light lilac, which you're probably thinking, well that looks like a pastel baby room color. The way that you work with that and make it look adult and sophisticated, is you pair it with a deeper tone of plum, like you can see here, and that contrast gives a really nice overall feeling to the room, and makes it feel grown up and elegant while at the same time your walls are nice and light and airy. Also keep in mind the lighting. If you have the option to add can lighting in the bedroom, that's fantastic. If you don't, think bedside table lamps, think floor lamps in the corner, anything you can do to brighten up that space will help. Thanks for joining me today. I hope you've found these tips helpful.
