How Your Bedroom Affects Your Mood

Your bedroom is where you go to recharge and relax, so it makes sense that how it looks can really affect your mood. Carolyn DiCarlo, an interior designer and wellness-driven architect says, “Spaces absolutely affect people’s moods. Just because we are in a society that doesn’t acknowledge it, doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. When you walk into a room, you feel it. We are so stuck in our heads, that we aren’t considering that.” She says this is especially true of your bedroom– where you should focus on just three things: rest, sex, and winding down. She says you may want to place your bed facing North as it’s a direction of “stillness and calm,” and adds the less visual clutter you have in your bedroom, the better. As for color she advises choosing “shades that change color with the light and time of day,” which makes you more connected to nature.
