What Colors Improve Sleep?

Dreamy Bedroom  Wall Art, Colors Which Help You Sleep!

Your bedroom should be your inner sanctum, the place that gives you a big hug at the end of each day, gently drifting you off into sleep. A good night's sleep sets you up for the day ahead, it allows your body to repair from the previous day and re-energizes you for the next.
In this edition, we will explore the science behind how colour affects your wellbeing and what colours to use in a bedroom to aid a good night's sleep.

Soothing Blues

Blue takes the top spot for the colour which best aids sleep. A survey of 2000 people by Travelodge concluded that those who slept in a blue room recorded the most sleep with an average of seven hours and fifty-two minutes sleep per night. With calming connotations associated with water and blue skies, this colour is very soothing to the eye. If you want the best night's sleep then get the paintbrush out and go blue! If you don't want to go all-out blue add blue accents with wall art, bedding, rugs and cushions.

Purple is a mentally stimulating colour, so perfect for your home office but is the worst colour for sleep.

Red the colour of energy and passion, is another colour to avoid if you want to maximise your shuteye. The colour red increases your fight or flight instinct and can even increase your blood pressure! Which is definitely not conducive to slumber.
