However if you live in a predominantly hot climate you might want to scale back on the warm hues and use them as accents against cooler neutrals. If you live someplace that tends to be cloudy cool and rainy for long periods at a time (I'm looking at you Seattle!) then layering several warm hues in different shades tints and tones will give you a cozy sanctuary that you might never want to leave. Red being a warm color is often paired with other warm hues. Shake it up by mixing it with cool neutrals instead as demonstrated in this modern and elegant bedroom. It's a great way to inject red into your bedroom without making the space too energetic. Pink gray and black make an unexpected and striking combination here. This super‐stylish bedroom would be perfect in a warmer climate as the cool neutrals help chill out the pinks. This rendering of a stylish bedroom features a daring shade of orange. Using the hue sparingly inside the headboard niche draws the eye toward the beautiful bed wall. Because everything else is neutral the orange glows without overwhelming. You don't always have to go with wood‐tone or neutral furniture. The orange shelf at the foot of the bed brightens up this otherwise neutral room. With orange yellow and green (analogous colors on the color wheel) in the bedding the effect is colorful yet balanced. When I bought my first fixer‐upper many years ago I took great care to pick the perfect shade of red to paint all four walls in my dining room.

Turquoise and green hues provide continuity between the dining room and the parlor. They also continue into the kitchen. Note the small branch side table in the living room which plays off the whimsical forest look in the dining room.

Green Sashes. Or try a dark green window sash. It's softer than black but still classic and neutral as it picks up the colors in nature. A magnificently tall ceiling like this one is beautiful but not required

Bring ranch outbuilding style indoors. The corrugated metal here provides an industrial contrast to the large beams while a door on a track brings barn style inside.

Bench on one side chairs on the other. Putting a low bench on one side of the dining table in place of chairs is an easy way to break up a set typically costs less than buying individual chairs and is great for small spaces. Try an upholstered bench for comfort during leisurely meals or a wooden bench for a sleeker look.

Wood is tops but don't discount glass. The advantage of a glass‐top dining table is that it works well with many decor themes. And because it has a reflective surface it is an excellent choice for a space that might need to look a little lighter and brighter. Glass dining tables are tough too. Today's versions are made with tempered safety glass which means the glass resists scratches and heat and won't shatter if knocked. You can also choose glass that is tinted in a range of different colors even black. Another benefit of a glass table is that you can surround it with versatile seating arrangements from mismatched dining chairs to multicolored options.

Pack a powerful punch. "We needed something bold and unexpected to create interest in this tiny formerly drab powder room " says Jennifer Jones of Niche Interiors. "This graphic packed the perfect punch".

Envision a deeply restorative space. The best way to begin any design project is with a clear vision of your hopes for the end result. Take a moment to ponder what your ideal bedroom space would look like and how it would feel – the scent the textures the sounds. Create as clear a picture as you possibly can and hold that in your mind as you move forward with the project. Clean the air. Air quality affects health and wellness and poor air quality can impact sleep. The easiest way to clean the air in your bedroom is simply to open your windows. Commit to letting fresh air into your bedroom for at least 10 minutes each day and the air quality is sure to improve. To take it a step further you may want to add several potted plants and an air purifier. Limit technology and remove emotional clutter. When you visualized your ideal bedroom I'd wager that it wasn't filled with clutter or the tangle of wires dangling from your laptop. Giving yourself a break from tech devices at night will help promote deeper rest and is probably a good idea healthwise as well. Also take a moment to consider the things you have stored in your bedroom. Are there boxes of bills and paperwork that make your stomach knot each time you see them? Piles of clothes that no longer fit workout tools you don't use or photos of friends you have a tense relationship with? All of these things can contribute to stress and insomnia so out they must go. Clean thoroughly and naturally. Often our bedrooms fall way down to the bottom of our cleaning to‐do list simply because not many others have to see these private spaces.
