Brightly Colored Bedrooms

The common-sense theory around color in the bedroom is that subtle shades help create a sense of calm and relaxation that is conducive to sleep. We're sure there's a lot of truth to that, but if you lovelovelove bright, saturated hues, adding color to your bedroom might be a design risk you're willing to take...

Sometimes in order to be true to your own style you've got to bend (or heck, completely break in two) the interior design "rules" that you may have heard before. If going for brightly colored walls, try creating a calm bedroom by appealing to your other senses, such as touch (luxuriously soft bedding, for instance), smell (perhaps lavender sachets), or sound (white noise machines, the burble of a vaporizer). Of course heavy, lined curtains don't hurt either. Tell us what you think - would you choose a bright color for the bedroom?
