Are you constantly so stressed that you are unable to feel calm and tranquil even within your bedroom, which is meant to be the ultimate safe haven in a home? If so, consider redecorating your bedroom in neutral white and taupe shades, along with accents in warm colours such as gold, to help you transform your bedroom into a serene sanctuary. As a result, you will look forward to relaxing in your bedroom at the end of each day.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Paint the bedroom walls taupe. Consider accenting the wall behind your bed or another wall that you want to make stand out by applying a thicker, more opaque layer of taupe paint to that wall.

  2. 2

    Make the bed with linens in a shade of taupe that is different from that which you used on the walls. Ideally, the bed frame and any other pieces of furniture should be a dark shade of brown---a colour characteristic of wood such as mahogany and oak. Accent the bedding with white or off-white throw pillows or a small white blanket placed at the foot of the bed.

  3. 3

    Cover a dark coloured floor entirely with white carpeting or spread a smaller white throw rug by the bed.

  4. 4

    Hang white drapes in the bedroom windows. If you plan on adding finials or buying new drape rods instead of using the existing ones, opt for golden tones to add a touch of warmth to the neural taupe and white colours.

  5. 5

    Display photographs and prints in white frames, arranging them on the taupe walls and on furniture as you wish.

  6. 6

    Use light fixtures that incorporate white. Put a lamp with a white lamp shade on the nightstand or table. Alternatively, hang a chandelier that has a white fixture from the ceiling.
