Your bedroom should be your sanctuary, a place where you feel calm and relaxed. Having the opportunity to unwind in a calming environment is the key to a good night's sleep, but getting an adequate amount of restful sleep is something many people find hard. While the interior decoration in your bedroom cannot cure insomnia, well-thought-out blues or yellows can provide tranquility and help diminish some anxiety. You can make your bedroom feel brand new and improve your sleep quality just by changing the color scheme in your room.

Blue is often considered the best color to paint a bedroom. Sleep experts claim that painting your bedroom pale or pastel shades of blue can actually reduce your blood pressure and heart rate, which helps improve sleep quality. Aside from its health benefits, blue never goes out of fashion, and there are so many shade options to play with. For a calming nautical color scheme, try pairing light blue and white. For a modern look that's at the height of fashion, you could even add yellow accents.
