USING INTERIOR DESIGN WITH FENG SHUI TO CREATE THE BEST BEDROOM: Part 3 – LIGHT & COLOUR
Part 3 – LIGHT & COLOUR
In bedrooms ensure there is plenty of natural light during the day. Light helps to promote growth and vitality. At night the room should be as dark as possible to ensure a good night’s sleep so black-out blinds and curtain linings are a good idea. These linings also help fabric to look and hang better. It is worth noting that windows should be clean (this always has the effect of making a room seem cleaner, brighter and larger) as this affects the way we see the outside world and the way the world views us.
Reading lights either side of a bed are not just for reading but also save you from having to get out of bed to turn on or off a light switch. If the reading lights are lamps, take care to ensure they cannot be easily knocked over, are tall enough to shed light on the reading matter and that the quality of the light from the lamps is good enough for reading. Afterall, it is important to look after our eyesight. The rest of the lighting in a bedroom should be low and designed to create a soft ambience.
For décor in a bedroom use mainly calm colours to create an harmonious effect with small amounts of rich accent colours for balance. Don’t use red as a main colour in a bedroom because it is a stimulating colour and should be used sparingly for accents only. In master bedrooms, fire colours will add fire to the relationship and cause problems for the couple, so avoid red, orange and peach as too much fire energy in the relationship will cause the pair to argue.
