How Does Color Affect My Sleep?
by WILD FABRIK
Colors can influence mood, emotions, and behaviours. Different colors can be used to evoke certain emotions — from aggressiveness and anger to calmness and happiness.
Pastel and muted shades are typically better for sleep than more vibrant ones, as bold colors can have an energizing effect. Understanding the way these colors affect your mood can help you manipulate your sleep space for better sleep.
Here are some good choices and what they mean for you
We see the color blue every day — in the sky, the sea. Blue promotes a feeling of calmness and serenity. It can also be linked to feelings of trust, stability, and dependability.
Having blue in your room can make you feel safe, relaxed, and calm. As a result, it’s one of the best bedroom colors for sleep.
Why not invest in a soft, pastel blue blanket to cozy up in overnight and bring you that peace?
Green links us to nature. It’s considered advantageous to the body and mind as it can produce a calming effect.
It’s associated with calmness and tranquility — making it ideal for sleep. When it comes to the bedroom, we recommend sticking to a sage green as opposed to a bright green. Sage green is softer and muted, making it better for sleep.
Light pink may not be your first choice for a bedroom color, but hear us out. Pink — especially light pink — represents a gentle tenderness. It’s calming, non-threatening, and can be linked to a naïve sweetness. If you lead a hectic, stressful life, consider adding some light pink to your bedroom.
Bedroom décor tip: Pink doesn’t have to be painted on your walls, but it could make a nice blanket or pillow color.
White is the lightest color on the spectrum. It’s a symbol of serenity — making it perfect for the be
droom. White is clean and
polished. It can bring you comfort and hope. With all these amazing benefits, white is a great color for the bedroom.
Bedroom décor tip: White duvets are comfortable and chic. Consider pairing one with white furniture and a plush, light-colored rug to complete the look.
Beige has a light, neutral hue, making it an attractive option for interior design. It’s considered a warmer form of white. Because of its similarities to white, it represents serenity, simplicity, and comfort.
Beige is a neutral color, plain and quiet — a perfect complement to sage green in the bedroom.
