Bedrooms 01

Bedrooms: the Reset Button

The goal is to create a place that is relaxing at night, yet invigorating in the morning. The color scheme must play to both sides of the bedroom’s purpose. This is where night becomes day again.

The colors for your bedroom are truly the most important set to consider so choose wisely. Bedrooms are the ultimate private place of solace. This is where each person, every day, retreats to and resets themself for the following day. The colors of the bedroom are the mood-makers of the home. Consider what will make each person who will rest their head there, truly content.

Bedrooms 02

Bedrooms are Where We Dream

The ambient light of the bedroom runs the widest range of any room in the house. Choose colors that will play well through sunrise and also look good with the different lamps and lights in the evening.

The final colors of each day recede into twilight, then collect and project the light of each new day. In between, our minds are busy balancing our souls with the imagination of our subconscious thoughts. Do the last and first colors that we consciously see effect what happens in between? Of course they do. Choose the colors of your bedrooms with that in mind. How do you like to begin and end each day? Which colors will work best for that?

Home Offices and Retreats

A clear distinction between workspace and the rest of the home may be important. However, integrating with the larger household reminds us that the comfort of home is readily accessible.

Whether you are getting the job done or just retreating to your place of peace and quiet, these sanctuaries play a very important role in today’s active household. Colors that work well for the type of work you do can run a very wide range. From creativity, to logistics, to number-crunching it may all take on a different look and feel. Some work-at-home entrepreneurs maybe performing every role in their operation. Consider the function and desired outcome when planning the color schemes of your workspace.
