Blue is often associated with tranquillity and calmness, making it a great color choice for your walls or furniture. A light blue-gray shade is ideal for the walls of your bedroom, creating a serene and peaceful room for you to retire at the end of the day.

Pick throw pillows in a similar shade to subtly tie the room together. This new muted color scheme will help you calm down and relax.

Selecting Stress-Reducing Grays


Integrating different shades of gray into your home’s décor is a stylish way to give your room a sophisticated as well as an elegant appeal. Whether you choose a warm or a cool tone for your walls, gray is incredibly versatile.

Due to gray being such a neutral color, it can be used in every room in your house, furthermore it easily complements virtually any bold accent color.

Picking the Perfect Pink


Pink isn’t the most obvious choice for creating a soothing color palate.  The truth is that soft, pastel pinks can be cozy and consoling as well. Pink isn’t as traditional as blue or gray; however, soft pinks can be stress-reducing in living rooms, bedrooms and home offices.

Going for brighter and bolder shades of pink should be used sparingly, but they are great options for accent chairs, lamps as well as throw pillows.

Eliminating stress in your home is essential to promoting a relaxing, soothing atmosphere.  Getting started can be as easy as decorating with soft, subtle colors. Whether you choose blue, gray, pink or a combination of the three, bringing new comforting colors into your house can help you destress at the end of the day.
