How to Make Your Bedroom More Tranquil

Your bedroom should invite you in as you enter it. Most importantly, it should be a place you can relax, rest, and have sweet dreams. Here are two quick updates to make your bedroom more soothing.

As always, color is the easiest thing to play with. Blues and greens, though predictable, are often the most tranquil-feeling, spa-like colors. If another color is more soothing to you, though, by all means go for it.


Another easy way to add a calm element is with a duvet, which is used far more frequently in Europe. To get a new look in your bedroom, you don't need to get a whole new comforter set, just switch out your duvet. Look for one that's double sided, and you'll have even more options: When your mood changes, just flip the comforter!
