Cariloha Pillows, Plus 4 Fun Ways to Refresh Your Bedroom

The last three tumultuous years had us basically housebound. During this time, we’ve gotten to know every square inch of our home and can see where we need refreshing, updating, or fixing. Looking at the same walls with the same decor day after day gets old, really fast. This is especially true with our bedroom. This is the room that is supposed to be our sanctuary, our zen space, our quiet space, our yin space, our haven, our sacred space, our happy place, our respite, and/or our refuge, so it needs to be comfortable and pleasantly decorated. So maybe, it’s time for an overhaul.

Having your walls painted serene or neutral colors has been, for decades, deemed restful and relaxing. Colors have energy and they can affect our mood, behavior, and ability to sleep. But old-school standards are disappearing as new trends or crazes break trails in home decor. No longer are neutral or soft colors considered the only way to infuse tranquility in a room. Bold and bright colors are edging their way into bedrooms and adding fresh new tones to our serenity. We don’t have to go out and slather bold colors on the walls, but we can punctuate our bedrooms with colorful bedding, pillows, curtains, rugs, wallpaper, and even plants. Go with your vibe and fill your room with colors that resonate with you whether they are neutral or bright. It may be the change you are aching for.
