Colors on the walls and in the carpet can be carried through with accessories like plants, throws, and chairs.

For a feeling of peace and calmness, the walls, ceiling and carpet should be pale, pastel colors complimented with brighter colors with dark trim for curtains and upholstery.

To make a room appear cooler, neutral shades can be used. Neutral colors can add to the freshness and lightness of the room as well.

Bedroom Furniture Designed for Function and Beauty

Unless you’re a chronic insomniac or a video game-obsessed teen, the piece of furniture you spend most of your time in is your bed. Granted, most of us are in some varying state of unconsciousness during a good portion of this time. But nonetheless our bed is where we can be found anywhere from five to ten hours of any given day (probably snoring, drooling, or both). For many of us, however, our bed and, in turn, our bedroom furniture, rank fairly low on our list of decorating priorities. Why is this? For most of us, the appearance of the rooms where we do our entertaining (dining room, living room) is more important than a room few others besides ourselves see. While this is understandable, it is also a bit regrettable.

If your bedroom decor warranted you spending more time in it with your eyes open, don’t you think you probably would? Relaxing with a good book in the afternoon, watching a little TV before bed, or even doing a little internet surfing on your laptop, all of these leisurely activities are more enjoyable in a room that’s aesthetically pleasing and more conducive to such activities. So how can you transform your bedroom from a drab and lifeless cell into a place of relaxation and tranquility? It’s actually fairly easy and won’t cause you to dip into the kids’ college fund (again). Continue reading

Bedroom Fairy Lights Lighting The Way To Dreamland

Published by:

How many of us have children who dont like to sleep in the dark  or who like to have their bedroom doors left open, or need a night light plugged into a socket to make them feel safe? Well, one of the United Kingdoms more enterprising companies has decided to offer something of an alternative solution to the problem of bedtime and lights  by creating a rather wonderful range of bedroom fairy lights to go alongside its already legendary range of childrens beds. Sandman Beds designs and makes its own bespoke beds for children, including a superb range of childrens bunk beds, has started to expand its bedroom furniture theme to include accessories and extras  of which the fairy lights are the first.

Neither a night light nor an open door – are really ideal solutions to that problem of not wanting to sleep when all the lights go out. The night light is either too bright, when seen at close quarters: or it sheds light in all the wrong directions, because it has been designed to be plugged straight into a wall socket six inches off the ground. Opening the door a little can let in enough noise to prevent a child from sleeping no matter how light or dark it is. Bedroom fairy lights, though, which can be strung like stars from the ceiling, or wrapped around a bed canopy, offer just the right amount of comforting, pretty light  and in the right place to be seen as the child drifts off to sleep. His or her little head hits the pillow in one of those childrens bunk beds we noted earlier: and the little one falls asleep with those lovely warm twinkling lights as the last thing that he or she sees; leading him or her quietly and happily down the path to some very pleasant dreams.

Bedroom Feng Shui

Published by:

Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese art, where placement of objects in a room depends on the movement of chi or natural energy of our environment. Based on the patterns of nature, a Feng shui master will tell us where to place every individual object in our home or workplace. A master will also provide advice on how a building should be positioned on a property. Feng Shui shows us how to support the flow of energy in our lives for better health and prosperity.

The best location for a bedroom, according to Feng Shui is in the rear of the home. This is where it is said that all “restful” energy lies. In order to preserve this energy the bedroom should have only one door connecting it to the rest of the house. It is best that the bedroom is not located over a garage. If it is, to preserve a restful sleep, one must use heavy solid objects on the floor or hang a mirror on the garage ceiling so that it will reflect the image of the car away from the bedroom. If a kitchen is located over the bedroom, place a mirror on the ceiling of the bedroom reflecting downward, sealing off the bustling activities occurring in the kitchen. Continue reading
