What Houzz contributors are saying:
6. Window treatments. Do you need complete darkness to get your best night’s sleep, or is a little light streaming in from the moon comforting? Select window treatments that support your sleeping preferences, adding blackout shades or drapes if any light proves to be disruptive. After function, use window treatments as an area to enhance the beauty and design aesthetic of the room.Find a window treatment professional near you on Houzz
Sweet dreams. Sometimes the best place for napping is in the bedroom, as it’s designed to be a calming, restful sanctuary that offers privacy and one that is free of distractions (like the hum of appliances, chatter of kids or the sound of the TV). Dressed in a harmonious palette of powder blue and cream, and decked out with elegant furnishings, this tranquil bedroom is a nap lover’s dream come true. Soft bedding that offers tactile pleasure and a cluster of plush pillows complete the peaceful look.
Next, get the lighting right. Too little or too much can make a bedroom feel uncomfortable and restricted. Rely on several different sources of light — lamps, chandeliers and sconces. Install dimmers wherever possible and scatter candles for extra romance. Third, stick with a soothing color palette. Cooler colors in the same tones feel instantly relaxing. Blues, grays and greens are especially calming. Feel free to add dimension with texture, but keep everything in the same palette.
