choose one which is soft. The bedding should be light, smooth and breathable. In the winter season, change the material of the bedding by replacing it with warm and thick bed-sheets.

Among the warm colors, blue is perhaps the most calming nighttime colors. Similarly, the color yellow improves the nerve function and nervous system. People who sleep in either yellow bedding or yellow rooms wake up feeling energized and happy. The earth toned green color tops the list for dècor and bedding. However, you should not go all-out with the warm colors. Buy the sheets in a light tone of these colors instead and add another bedding item having a lighter shade of the same color. Moreover, you can make a blend of choosing two different warm colors.

5-  The Good Vibe

Everyone wants a specific theme with respect to the feel and purpose. For starters, it is advisable to not use many bright colors.

6-  Neutral Colors

Although white color for the bed-sheets is a mainstream choice, most people do not like it because it’s too bland for their taste and white gets discolored easily. Other alternatives include beige, off-white or cream which are neutral colors as well. If these tones are plain for you as well, you can choose an embroidered or patterned sheets. This will keep the bedding from feeling monotonous and will offer texture. Another trick is to intermix the neutral colors to provide a bold statement.
