Style Booster - Bedroom bliss starts with color

If you're following my series on how to
DEFINE YOUR PERSONAL STYLE IN YOUR HOME
you know I'm on a mission!

"I want to help you create a home that 
really expresses your true personality and tastes." 

We've been walking through your house, one room at a time,
so I can point out ways to put your signature on each space.

And now we stand at the doorway of your bedroom...
Before we enter, what's your first impression of the space you've created?
Does it beckon you?
or
is it so scary you're afraid to step inside???

We've all heard it enough.
We know that our bedrooms should nurture, protect and re-energize.
But, if you're like most of us.  It just hasn't worked out that way.
The one place that can have the greatest impact on our daily lives
is often ignored to the point that it is actually an irritation, rather than a pleasure.
So...
"What are you going to doing about it?"

It starts with a better understanding of YOU,
and what makes you feel good.

And the answer is different for each one of us.
But there is a way to get the ball rolling...

Start by PICKING A COLOR FOR YOUR WALLS. 
One that gives you a sense of well-being and security

A recent survey in House Beautiful magazine
indicated that Blue is the favorite among readers for the bedroom.

But it may be different for you. Blue could be at the bottom of your list.

Are you more of a Green fan?  What shade?  Cool or warm, vibrant or muted?

Or do you prefer a dark rich color that wraps around you like a cocoon?

"It's so important to get it right."
It may be trial and error to zero in on the perfect color or shade.
Don't be shy about testing your paint options on the wall.
You'll get a much better sense of what works after seeing it during different times of the day
and after dark, when the lamps are on.

I'm going to leave it at that, for now...
in hopes that you'll take the time to discover your signature bedroom color.

 Next time, we'll talk about what goes in your bedroom...
 and more importantly, what DOESN'T!
