Choose Warm Colors
As a general rule, you would pick warm paint colors to create that soft, cozy feel. Those warm colors are soft shades of red, orange and yellow.

Colors To Make Your Room Look Bigger
One important thing about choosing a color to make your bedroom more relaxing:
Make sure you don’t choose a color that makes your small bedroom look even SMALLER.
Feeling like you are cramped into a small room is NOT relaxing or calming at all.
So, what colors DO make a small bedroom look, and FEEL, bigger?
According to MyMove.com:
For an optimum effect, go with soft tones like off-white, blues, and greens, and always remember that brighter rooms feel bigger and more inviting. And here’s another hack: Try painting your wall trim and moldings in a lighter color than your walls.
Best Colors For Sleep
Now, if your idea of a cozy bedroom is to help you relax and sleep better, there are specific colors that are better at promoting better sleep and that restful aesthetic.
According to amerisleep.com:
The best colors for sleep are blue, yellow, green, silver, orange, and pink. These colors reduce stress and soothe the nervous system. Try to stick with neutral or pastel shades for a soft, welcoming atmosphere.
Shades of Gray
One of THE most popular bedroom paint colors this year is gray.
But my goodness, there are SO many shades of gray to choose from – how do you choose?
According to realsimple.com the most popular shade of grey for a bedroom comes from Sherwin Williams:
Agreeable Gray SW 7029 is our most popular gray paint color because it’s the perfect hue for any living space, whether it be a family room or bedroom

At the top of this decision of picking a color scheme for your small bedroom, it all comes down to what colors make YOU feel relaxed?
Whatever that color, or colors, are will be the right choice for YOUR bedroom.
