Consider The Mood
Having art in a room can drastically alter the overall feeling of the space, so when you’re dressing your bedroom, it is important to consider the mood that you hope to achieve in this area of restful sleep and relaxation.
Psychologists often suggest that you keep your bedroom reserved for sleep, only: no TV watching, no hanging out during the day and no mirrors. The theory is, that by training your brain into knowing that once you enter your bedroom it’s time to doze off, you’ll experience a much deeper and more satisfying sleep as well as finding it easier to fall asleep in the first place.
The art you choose to hang on your bedroom walls has the potential to have a similar effect on your brain, as studies have shown that certain colours, shapes and themes will usually induce relaxation and a sense of safety and calmness, whereas others can pep you up by stimulating creativity, concentration or even anxiety.
Although there are ‘standards’ for this, everyone is individual and so what works for you will be unique! Whilst viewing the art you're considering buying, try to imagine how you would like to feel in your bedroom as see if this particular piece of art takes you there. For some, a blue/green sea scape will envelop them in a sense of tranquillity but for others, perhaps an expansive open space will amplify feelings of vulnerability. Tap into where you want to be as you drift off to sleep and only settle on art that brings you there.
