Creating a relaxing bedroom
Obviously, many people want their bedroom to be a relaxing space to help them unwind and fall asleep at the end of the day. In order to do this, you should choose subtle, muted colours and avoid anything that’s too stimulating on the brain, such bold or vibrant tones. When choosing artwork, consider what emotion the actual images conveys – still life or landscapes are much more likely to relax you than exciting action shots.
Interiors journalist Hayley Gilbert believes this is the best ambience for a bedroom: “In the bedroom, stick to a calming colour palette as you don’t want to stimulate the senses while you’re trying to unwind ready for sleep. Tranquil whites, stone and pebble grey tones will create a soothing effect. If you want to add some artwork, consider natural landscapes such as undulating waves on a golden beach or a forest scene in a monochrome tone.”
