In the master bedroom, Meisels continued her strategy of roughing up the very simple white space. “Using textures really helps warms things up in a light room,” she says. The bed is upholstered, the rug adds furry softness underfoot, and the mango wood nightstand adds a rough-hewn industrial feeling. “The combination of these textures makes the bedroom supercozy,” she says.

Shut down electronics. One thing to avoid when winding down for a nap (or going to bed) is screen time. Doesn’t it seem like an “essential” email always pops up just when you were about to sign off? Don’t give your tech the opportunity to distract you from your delicious nap — move away from the desktop, close the laptop and put your phone away.

1. They’re an easy update. One of my go-to design solutions for projects on a small budget is a quick update of the bed linens to a new all-white set. Since typically the bed visually dominates the bedroom (hence the name), this one upgrade can go a long way toward making the room look like a whole new space. It’s like giving a wall a fresh coat of paint, without all the work. Add a textural pillow or two for subtle contrast and you’ve got a classic look with depth that you’ll want to dive into every night.

2. Tech bans. We’ve all heard this one before, but it makes sense: If we’re staring at a screen before bed, our minds become overstimulated. Evidence shows that it’s not just kids who should lose the tech at least a couple of hours before bed.Studies on the effects of bright tablets show that using laptops for up to five hours before bed affects the evening’s natural rise in melatonin (a hormone that makes us ready for sleep), according to Australia’s Sleep Health Foundation. Repeated exposure to a bright screen over five days can delay the body clock by 1½ hours, meaning you consistently want to go to bed later and sleep in longer. This can obviously be a problem when you need to get up for school or work.Among the findings:The bright light from device screens can cause increased alertness.Activities on such devices can be stimulating and make us less ready to sleep.People can become absorbed and continue using technology beyond their usual bedtime.

How to Cool Down a Room1. Unplug the TV and close the laptop. Electrical appliances emit heat, so switch off everything you’re not using and make sure they’re unplugged at the wall too. TVs and computers are the worst offenders, so ensure they’re all closed down.Even if an appliance is on standby it can still emit heat, so unplug everything you can at the wall, including phone chargers, and take the opportunity to give yourself a tech break.
