One of our trend predictions for 2015 was the movement towards darker, moodier colors. Nowhere does that seem more right than in the bedroom, where darker hues feel wonderfully calming and restful. If you're thinking of changing up your look, look no further than these nine inspiring images.

The stylish moodiness of this apartment from Nordic Design perfectly illustrates the new direction for the bedroom. The palette is quite dark and a bit somber, but within it there's a lot of richness and variation, a lovely mix of multiple hues of grey and blue.

I love this image (also from Nordic Design) because it illustrates that you don't have to go super dark to get the moody effect. The light grey (and light plum) in this bedroom read a bit somber because they're paired with other greys and black.

But if you're willing to go all the way, black can also be really lovely, as seen in this photo from Design Milk.

Sage green isn't 'dark', per se, but it reads a bit moodier with black accents in this British home from Imperfect Interiors.

What is it about grey that's so soothing? Just looking at this picture makes me want to take a nap. (This space, spotted on Yatzer, is by Dimore Studio, whose designs consistently get the whole dark, moody colors thing perfectly right.)

Greys don't have to be dark to achieve the proper effect. Farrow & Ball's Cornforth White gives this room (from Little Miss Homes) a proper solemnity while still being quite light.

The mix of colors in this room from Emmas Designblogg is really very nice. It's from a Swedish designer, so you know they must be doing something right.

And here's one more black bedroom (from Est Magazine) for the road, because black never really goes out of style.
