1. Keep the Colors Light

If you are trying to figure out how to make your bedroom the most relaxing area of your home, changing the color can give you the most extreme results. Experts agree that colors found in nature are most calming, so putting them in your bedroom is an easy way to make the space more relaxing. Light blues, pale greens and warm yellows and pinks all work well to creating a relaxing space. Experts agree that you can add a pop of a bright color in the form of throw pillows or blankets, but the walls and drapery should stay muted. Avoid bright, bold colors like bright yellows , deep reds and orange. These colors can be a bit jarring in large quantities.
