Next, get the lighting right. Too little or too much can make a bedroom feel uncomfortable and restricted. Rely on several different sources of light – lamps, chandeliers and sconces. Install dimmers wherever possible and scatter candles for extra romance. Third, stick with a soothing colour palette. Cooler colours in the same tones feel instantly relaxing. Blues, greys and greens are especially calming. Feel free to add dimension with texture, but keep everything in the same palette.
Sweet dreams. Sometimes the best place to nap is in your bedroom, as it’s designed to be a calming, restful sanctuary that offers privacy and a space free of noisy distractions (like the hum of appliances, chatter of kids or the sound of your TV blaring) that are found in other areas of the home. Dressed in a harmonious palette of powder blue and cream, and decked out with elegant furnishings, this tranquil bedroom is a nap-time lover’s dream come true. Soft bedding that offers tactile pleasure and a cluster of plush pillows complete the peaceful, snooze-worthy look.
