The bedroom is one place in your home where your personality and style can be and should be expressed freely in its interior design. It is a room for your relaxation and comfort. The interior design of the bedroom should suit the taste of the owner of the bedroom, and that you should not choose a design for your bedroom because of fad or trend, or even because it is dictated by your designer. It is important that you choose a design for your bedroom that you like and what will make you feel most comfortable with, it should reflect a feeling of rest, tranquility and peacefulness. The use of color in your bedroom is very important because colors invoke different feelings to a person. There are generalizations on what feelings and effects a color can have on a person, but still there are no fixed rules on this. Our perceptions of colors are oftentimes cultural and personal.
Red is known to be a color of aggressiveness, passion, love and anger. But among the Chinese, red is a color of prosperity and good fortune. Since red is said to stimulate a faster heartbeat and increase adrenaline, it is not advisable for people who have difficulty sleeping to use this color for their bedroom. But if you want love and passion to be the main activity in your bedroom then a splash of red in your bedroom walls, adding red artworks or the use of red bedcovers, red pillows and red sheets will be best for you.
As I have said above, there are no sure way to determine how a color may affect our feelings and mood, there are people who feel comfortable in a red room and may find the red color adds a soothing feel in their bedroom while others find it hard to relax and rest in a red bedroom. In using the color red in your bedroom, does not necessary mean that your bedroom will be red all over.
Since red is an attention grabbing color, you can just use accessories, bed sheets, lamps, or just hang a red artwork to feel the love and passion this color exudes. Give the red color a try in your bedroom and you might just be surprised at what moods and feelings it will invoke in you and your bedroom.
