The New Year started last Thursday but this Thursday we #tbt (Turn Back Time) by revisiting a previous post to help begin this new chapter in your life.
In the May post entitled “Bedroom Makeover: Subtle Changes that Can Make a Big Difference” we discussed how bedroom redecorating can be cleansing, liberating, and easy to accomplish in a few steps.
While you might think that freshening up your space is a spring task, winter is actually the ideal time to give your bedroom a fresh look as it helps counter the mind-numbing and body-numbing effects of the season’s icy grasp. Having a project to do inside keeps your mind off what’s going on outside and creates a pleasant sanctuary to ride out any storm.
A good place to start with your bedroom makeover is with color because it has a stronger impact on your mood and the feeling of a space than you may realize.
In with the Color
Your color choices can have a dramatic effect on the mood and spatial sense of your room. For example, warm colors can make large rooms feel more intimate, but they can also make a small room seem even smaller. Reds are stimulating and high-energy but opt for deeper, rich variations that will make the room appear more elegant than overstimulating. Orange promotes energy and excitement, which may hinder your ability to fall asleep so keep it minimal. Yellow is a cheerful hue but is better when used as an accent color as well. Studies show that yellow rooms can cause people to get frustrated and make babies cry more, notes Freshome.
