Bedrooms are more than just places to sleep. The part of a home where you spend eight-plus hours a day, a bedroom can have a significant effect on your overall mood and feelings. To that end, it’s only logical to create a bedroom that inspires feelings of restlessness, peace, and relaxation. Fortunately, color psychology can help you choose bedroom hues that promote the desired state of mind. Experts believe that different colors can affect your emotional state, with cooler colors encouraging calm while brighter colors result in feelings of excitement and creativity. A great option for those seeking a little more tranquility in their day to day, olive green is a mix of green and either yellow or brown. Long associated with peace, this harmonious shade can help you get more sleep and ensure the hours you spend in your bedroom are positive and happy ones.

There are many reasons to choose olive green as either a primary or secondary color in your bedroom. At once earthy and tranquil, olive green is said to have a soothing effect on the brain. It may make you think of the beauty and power of Mother Nature or the vitality of life. Then again, some people feel that olive green’s associations with peace help them to feel more at ease and better able to deal with the daily circumstances of life.
Additionally, olive green can help a room appear bigger and more airy. If your current bedroom is small or stifling, adding olive green in the form of paint or a new bedding set can be just the change you need. Even a few carefully chosen throw blankets and accent pillows can be enough to help your bedroom feel fresh.
Deciding to incorporate olive green bedding into your room and life is only the first step. If you truly want to get more sleep, you need to ensure your bedding contains all the necessary items for a solid night’s rest. Here are some of the key components of a cozy bed along with items to look for in your next luxury comforter set.
An essential element of your bedding, the comforter serves to keep you warm and cozy during the dead of winter. This fluffy, quilted blanket goes over your top sheet. The outer fabric of a comforter can vary, but the inside is typically filled with down or a down alternative material such as polyester, wool, or silk.
A pillowcase of sorts, shams go on the outside of large, fluffy pillows used to support your back while you read or watch TV. (This varies from the traditional pillowcases used to cover the pillows on which you sleep.) Typically, pillow shams coordinate with your comforter or duvet and add style and cohesion to your bedroom.
The space under the bed isn’t always the most aesthetically pleasing. After all, this area is traditionally used to stow plastic storage boxes and other containers. A bed skirt serves to conceal this part of the room from view while also adding interest to your space. Bed skirts often come with a luxury comforter set and coordinate in color or style.
Two pillows may be enough to sleep on, but they hardly make a bed look inviting. If you want to turn your home into a haven, decorative throw pillows are a must. Also called toss or accent pillows, this bedding component can be purchased in a wide array of materials, including cotton, linen, leather, suede, velvet, or microfiber. Choose from an assortment of sizes and styles.
Research shows that olive green bedroom decor is trending in a big way. This cool, muted shade of green melds well with a wide array of furniture styles and colors and looks great with an assortment of bedding. Whether you’re looking to redo your bedroom from scratch or just add a few select pieces to give your space a refresh, it’s worth considering olive green. Below are some of our top tips for styling your olive green bedding successfully.
When you think of the term neutral, you probably imagine colors like white, ivory, gray, charcoal, taupe, and tan. While these might be the most popular base shades for a bedroom, the truth is that olive green can serve as a neutral when it comes to home decor. In fact, many amateur and professional decorators use olive as a neutral with hues like pink, orange, or red acting as the “pop” shade or accent. If you go this route, you can use olive for wall paint, an accent wall, or your luxury comforter set.
Then again, olive green can also work well as an accent color alongside more muted shades. For example, you could choose a selection of olive decorative pillows and throw blankets while opting for white or ivory sheets, comforters, and walls. Additionally, olive green goes well with the kind of muted colors that appear in nature. A soft lake blue looks lovely with olive, as does a night sky shade of navy.
When decorating your bedroom, look beyond the wall paint and linens and consider the best furniture colors. We especially love the way dark wood furniture goes with this all-natural hue. Choose a dark brown wood stain or even a shade of charcoal or black paint.
It’s clear that olive green comforters can add peace and vitality to a bedroom. However, that doesn’t mean shopping for this essential bedding component is a walk in the park. Just like a mattress or sheet set, a comforter can make or break a bed, affecting your ability to sleep and impacting your mood from day to day.
Moreover, comforter needs vary from person to person. Depending on your particular tastes, you may want a light, breathable comforter that lets heat and moisture pass through. On the other hand, you may be a cold sleeper who wants a comforter that keeps in the heat. Individuals may also choose or reject a comforter based on whether you can machine launder it or if you need to take it to the dry cleaner.
