1. Opt for colors that will make you happier
When it comes to interior design, selecting a stunning color palette is no easy feat. Have you ever heard how colors can affect your mood?
For instance, colors in the red area are considered warm colors and evoke emotions ranging from feelings of warmth and comfort to feelings of anger and hostility. Whereas cold colors like blue or lilac have been said to make you feel sad or indifferent.
If so, which colors are ideal to make your sleep better? Here, we consider top colors to enhance your bedroom.
Ah, yellow, the happiest color of the rainbow. Incorporating yellow into the bedroom creates happiness and is also a good solution if your room isn’t getting great natural light. However, yellow can be abrasive when overused.
We’d recommend adding pops of bright yellows via beautiful throw cushions, vibrant artwork, or even a bold accent wall.
Blue is the most popular color, and its soothing and relaxing vibe makes it perfect for the bedroom.
Considered as the most serene color, green has a calming effect and is believed to also help relieve people from stress. Hues of sage, seafoam, and mint work well in the bedroom. But lime green, on the contrary, is much more vibrant. The color should be left for a space that creates more energy, like the kitchen or living room.
2. Set the right mood with the right lighting
When it comes to decorating the bedroom, lighting is often overlooked when you are enthusiastic about selecting bedding and furniture, as well as for opting for a color scheme. That’s a shame because good lighting is a very important element of design in every room of the home.
Here are some modern bedroom lighting ideas you’re sure to love:
Play with contrast
Lighting can be a good way to strengthen the aesthetic of your space, but it can also be a good way to make your space feel more energetic. Don’t be afraid to play with contrast. If your bedroom is feeling a little too classic, balance out one with ultra-modern sleek table lamps.
Wall lights or small pendants as an alternative if you prefer a clutter-free space
Consider various types of light fitting. Wall-mounted lights are great space-savers in compact rooms and are perfect for creating a clean, boutique hotel look.
3. Think about the visual weight of your furniture
Every piece of furniture has a visual weight — for instance, a couch with taller hairpin legs will be much visually lighter than a low couch with block legs or no legs at all. When establishing balance consider visual weight created by size, color, texture, and a number of objects. In a compact bedroom, it’s better to pick a light-looking bed and minimal nightstand; in a bedroom with a high ceiling, you can hang art or other decorative items to add depth and character to plain spaces.
4. Mix bedding patterns
Pattern, pattern everywhere, even in a compact bedroom! An intricate shutter design, a cozy pile of amazing velvet pillows, and a golden damask-print coverlet animate any bedroom.
Here are a few mix and match bedding ideas:
Use the same color palette
When purchasing bed sheets, look for ones that go together well. For instance, blue and orange may be a good combo due to their opposite positioning on the color wheel. If you worry about things clashing, consider buying everything in the same tone, but in different patterns and styles. That way, any combination will please.
Combine different textures
The texture is a way to create accents. Textures can help add ‘visual weight’. In other words, how an object or section of the room is able to draw attention to itself. Playing with different textures will create a chic look. Try mixing plain silk cushions and throws with sequin or heavily embroidered versions for an interesting contrast.
5. Use vertical space
You probably don’t even realize how much untapped vertical space you’ve got in your bedroom. All of that space can be used to add more storage, style, or sophistication to your room.
There are several perks to going with floating shelves – from adding extra visual space to injecting some fresh, modern vibes into your space. In addition, it really is the ultimate convenience to have all of your essentials visible and easy-to-grab at all times.
A comfortable and nice atmosphere in your bedroom will improve your sleep and transform your whole day into a great one. We hope you’ll enjoy and use this information to create a comfortable and stylish interior design!
