What to Bring In
Neutral Colors-- Light, neutral hues likecreams, taupes, grays and bluesprovide a tranquil atmosphere. Use soft, coordinating colors for your bedding and walls.
Soft Lighting-- Overhead lighting can sometimes be harsh or too concentrated. Create a soothing mood with soft, balanced lighting throughout the room. Add lamps to brighten dark corners and illuminate each side of the bed.
Window Treatments-- A sense of privacy is essential to any sanctuary. Window treatments offer coverage from the outside world and can be a beautiful design element. If outside lighting disrupts your sleep, consider blackout curtains.
What to Take Out
Outdated Bedding-- A relaxing bedroom begins with a comfortable bed. Most experts recommendreplacing your mattress every eight years. Pillows should be replaced every two to three years or every six months if you have asthma or allergies.
Excess Furniture-- Get back to basics by paring down your bedroom to just the essentials. Most people require little more than a bed frame, a couple of matching nightstands and a dresser or chest of drawers. Anything more can quickly become clutter.
