Your home is an expression of yourself. It is a reflection of you and your design sensibility. Some parts like the living room are for storytelling about your life and taste, heirloom objects with a backstory, an artwork you love, a curious object that is a conversation starter when you entertain, etc. Other parts of the home, such as the bedroom, is an inward projection of what you feel and what makes you feel at ease. It is a personal area, a sanctuary. And hence when one selects colours for the bedroom it must be a very personal restful choice.

Instead of a Scarlet Sun-N (9981) use deeper colours like Mossy Bark (8414), Kahlua Cream-N (K279), Straw Mat (8575)

Having dark curtains is a norm in the bedroom, we all know that. Once the curtains are open make sure that the wall opposite the windows is of a lighter colour to ensure light bounces off and the room is flooded with light in the morning. It would also rely on which direction the window opens to, an east facing window might be brighter than a west facing. Avoiding visual cluster around the window and throughout the room to ensure a bright room at dawn.
Wallpaper and textured patterns are good to have, especially if it will be visible from the bed. Ceiling is another area that has been ignored and most of us have the default white, but this can be a unique space to add colour.
