How to choose bedding colors


When choosing bedding colors, the first step is to decide the overall color scheme for the room. This will help narrow down the options and make it easier to find colors that will coordinate with the existing décor. Consider the existing furniture, window treatments, and wall colors when making this decision. 

Just about color in human life

The different colors of the world around us begin to influence us from birth. Each color has a certain effect. For example. As soon as a boy is born, parents choose clothes of blue colors for him, and when girls are born, clothes of pink color. When children begin to grow up, parents buy a lot of toys of different colors. Note that children’s clothes are also multicolored and bright. This is necessary for a person to learn to identify colors from childhood. A newborn baby is able to recognize only two colors: black and white. Later, you can observe which color the child likes more. If you know the psychology of color, you can develop the child’s talents inherent in nature.

For example, if a child likes brown and often plays with brown toys, it may mean the following. A child is unlikely to be sociable and may withdraw into himself. There are signs of selfishness and the possibility of falling into depression. Another child is intelligent and able to absorb a lot of information. This topic is huge and there is a science of studying color and its effect on a person.

5 recommendations for choosing bedding from Feng Shui

Feng Shui is a Taoist practice for arranging space. For example, to find an auspicious place to build a house and divide the plot. It is believed that masters who have achieved the highest enlightenment can predict the future. The purpose of Feng Shui is to find the beneficial flow of energy and to use this energy for human benefit. When you live, the energy is always flowing. Sometimes we have to deal with unfavorable energy, so we have to create balance.

To do this you have to use the wisdom of feng shui. Since a person spends most of his life sleeping, the teachings of feng shui have their own recommendations in this regard. The color of bedding is divided into Yin and Yang. Yin colors (white, pink, blue, blue, green) are beneficial for the physical condition of the person. They soothe, relax and have healing properties. Yang colors (yellow, red, orange) on the contrary call for action. They energize, give energy and inspire passion.

The most interesting thing is that the colors Yin and Yang can be combined to achieve harmony.

5 recommendations for choosing bed linens

Bedding should be made of natural material, cotton, linen and silk. Because natural materials are pleasant to the body. Create a cozy and comfortable.

Bedding should not have holes and ties. Linen should be intact. Because the positive energy comes out through the holes and rips.

Try to use solid-colored linens or linens consisting of two colors. Beautiful flowing patterns have a favorable effect.

It is NOT recommended to use linens with pictures of animals that are grinning, running or jumping. This can lead to mental disorders. Depictions of cars, buildings and people may also not be good for your well-being.

Depictions of water (waterfalls and rivers) can lead to financial difficulties.

After all of the above, what I would like to say last. Choose the color of your bedding according to how you feel and your mood. Always follow your heart, because only you know what you need.
