The holidays are over, and if you’re like a lot of us, you might be feeling a little blue. While it’s a lovely color, it doesn’t look good on anyone’s attitude; but we get it! It’s cold outside, and the promise of Santa and holiday cookies have come and gone. You find yourself standing in a living room covered in left behind pine needles and contemplating another New Year’s resolution to eat better and go to the gym more. It doesn’t help that your once-festive winter wonderland of a home has been transformed back into your familiar residence that now seems dull by comparison. Don’t let the winter blues win; Star is here to suggest some beautiful furniture in gorgeous colors that are sure to lift your mood.

You can use this information to your advantage by making changes to your interior with colors that lift moods and promote feelings of energy, calm, or cheerfulness, depending on your preferences.

To make your bedroom a haven of restful sleep and relaxation, remember: green is serene! Another great option for this space is a nice lavender, which also promotes relaxation. You could even try working these colors into the same color story, weaving together an atmosphere of total calm and content. color
