bedroomThe bedroom is one of the most important rooms in the house. This space is your personal getaway from the everyday stresses of life. As a result, when decorating your bedroom, focus on making this room a place to rest and relax.

Warm Tranquil Colors - Focus on soft coloring to set a comfortable mood. You can use soft greens and browns such as sage and beige. These colors are typically found in spas for their ability to make the senses feel relaxed. One popular trend is to paint three walls beige, and paint the fourth wall behind the bed a darker chocolate brown. If you have a trey ceiling, try painting your walls sage and paint the trey ceiling a darker hunter green. These two approaches add depth to a room while maintaining a warm, comfortable atmosphere.

Balanced Lighting Scheme - Use a combination of bright and soft lighting. On your nightstand, place a lamp with righter lighting. This is a good idea if you like to read in bed. You can also add a ceiling fan and light combination and use a dimmer switch to soften it for a more romantic feel. Many ceiling fan and light combinations come with remotes so you can control speed, light and power for convenience.

Accent with Linens - Look for a duvet, comforter, sheets and drapes that can accent your wall color. For example, if you're going with beige walls and a chocolate trey ceiling, chocolate linens can pick up and accent the color in the ceiling. There are many choices among retailers today for linens with thread counts from 250 to 1000 for soft and durable texture. Another good idea is to add different shaped pillows in another shade of the same color palette as your wall and linen color.

The bedroom is a very important room in your house. Keep two important words in mind when making your choice, rest and relaxation. Creating a perfect night's sleep is not far away with these simple but effective solutions.
