Soothing Bedrooms

In regards to the bedroom, many people opt for a neutral colour palette in a bid to achieve a peaceful space. White, beige and gray are often the preferred neutrals, and they work well in rooms made for comfort. But if you love color and the rainbow is calling your name, please understand your bedroom does not have to be all-neutral or nothing. You can still create a serene space by introducing smaller doses of accent colors into your neutral palette. You will still have somewhere to relax, but it will be just a little more interesting and gratifying to your color-loving eye.
