    A couple of questions... What color is your furniture,do you have carpet or wood on the floor and what are you using for your bed accessories? This will help answer your question.

      @Janet Pizaro Ok so first off lets start with picking out a paint color. Keep in mine the size of the room.Then think of colors that you really admire.I always choose earth tones because they are colors then blend well. So for inspiration not that you have to use this brand of paint go to and search colors for your room. Once you decide that it will all fall into place.

    A caramel is warm, but not oppressive.

    Warm colors are red, yellows and oranges. Obviously you would want muted versions; think pumpkin orange, not jack-o-lantern orange.

    Warm is your best bet, anything earth tone colors, get a couple of different color samples and live with them for a little while, You will know which one to go with once you see it on the wall, also some home improvement centers now allow you to take a picture of your room, and you can go on line and choice colors that way. Good Luck

    i have the old solid oak flooring and it's stained with the light oak stain or maybe just sealed...i don't really know...anyway, my bedroom was cold also...i love chocolate brown and light blue together...i have dark brown curtains and i put one of the fleece blankets in light blue on the bed...the blanket looks great just folded on the bottom of the friends at my church gave me one of the 'rag' quilts that we make for our hugs is cream, purple, light has a cream colored cross on the front...this is layered between the blanket and the top-sheet...i have two shih zhus (both are very demanding or spoiled if i want to be honest) and i am sometimes antsy, so i go into my bedroom and just stand and i can just relax...hope this helps and you get what helps you to relax...btw, my walls are all still white... i plan to do my bedroom in either light blue or a medium tan...

    Use browns, greens, and rusts. These are also very inviting and homey colors. These colors go with woods or carpets.

    Fill a long sock with rice, enough that it's supple, knot the open end. Microwave it for 3min. and take to bed with you. I have 2 one for my feet the other around my shoulder or on my tummy . Works wonderfully,moist healthy heat.

    I have a bedroom in the basement because I prefer the cold at night, but I painted the walls a warm peach with pieced quilts and a brown snugly blanket at the foot of the bed, it all just feels much warmer during the day. In summer I transform with sea foam bedding etc, and it still feels warm to me, warm yellow walls may help also with burnt sienna accessories? Hope you find something you love, good luck!

    We have a brown tone tile floor, sand color walls and coral ceiling. Like a sunrise on the eastern shore. I would like to go with a warm grey eventually, lighter on ceiling, darker on walls.

    what are your color preferences? I'm not a fan of golds, tans and rust, but I love burgundy, soft pinks and blends of blue. Stay away from the lighter icy blues and opt for deeper colors of cobalt, dusty blue and blend with creamy white and burgundy. Our neighbor redid her guest bedroom (in the basement) with warm burgundy and navy blue quilt, soft dusty blue walls and accents of medium rose - a previously chilly space warmed up considerably!

    Warm colors are your best bet to make the space feel warmer. If you love blue, try choosing blues that have a purple base to them rather than a green base. You could also add in a beautiful warm gray to break up your blue color scheme. You could also use a color like rustic taupe, which is a warm color that changes depending on the light....sometimes looking more brown and sometimes more of a warm gray. Don't forget about your lighting in the room. This will do as much for the perceived temperature of the room than about anything else. You can even choose light bulbs now that are actually warmer or cooler light. Try for multiple lighting sources like overhead, table lamps, and floor lamps to really make your space feel warm and cozy. You can also use some nice, beautiful draperies in the room to both visually and physically warm up the space. Finally, don't forget some cozy toss pillows, maybe a beautiful throw, and an area rug. Having multiple layers to your space will also make for a warmer feel to the finished space.

    You can check on a standard color wheel at the paint store for warm colors. I'd tone it down with blue or gray a little so that the warm colors don't overwhelm your space come summer and make you feel too hot!!

    No one seems to have mentioned yellow or linen. Both of those colors are warm with many other colors to compliment them.
