Why not put a bed at the door thanto replace the shelf above the headboard and in what color to paint the walls - these and other tips for creating a cozy and harmonious interior are shared by designers and a professional psychologist. It is known that a man spends a third of his life in the bedroom. This is the most intimate place in the apartment, here we restore strength and are not afraid to be defenseless, and therefore to approach the design of this room is with special attention and delicacy. About how to create harmony in the bedroom with the help of interior details, tell the practicing designers and consultant of the MebelVIA factory, psychologist Irina Maryina. The magic of color Color has a significant effect on the emotional state of a person, so the correct color solution of the bedroom plays a huge role. A pleasant relaxing environment can create restrained tones. It is best to choose warm pastel shades that provide a sense of security: light green, beige, gentle-peach. In addition, light halftones help to visually enlarge the room. But without the support of warm colors, a "sterile" white color can, on the contrary, create a cold and even slightly repulsive atmosphere. The stimulating effect on the psyche hasintense saturated colors: they cause excitement and contribute to increased activity. Often this interferes with relaxation and a calm transition to sleep, so red or orange should be used in the bedroom with care. Do not abuse and blending many colors. It is better to use different shades of one or stick to a pair of primary colors. Small accents can be added with the help of decor elements - pillows, candles, paintings, and sometimes small pieces of furniture, for example, puff, coffee table, small chest. Maria Cherkasova, designer: - I do not think that the bedroom needs calm colors. I had customers who felt great in both the green and the bedroom (as a rule, people are active, focused on the result). But the blackouts on the windows really contribute to a good sleep. We make of them or a lining on the main curtains, or Roman curtains. And another chair in the bedroom - this is a sybaritic stroke! interior of Maria Cherkasova interior of Maria Cherkasova Harmony in detailsUsing decorative elements, aromapalochki and fresh flowers, you can change the atmosphere of the bedroom, making it soothing, meditative, romantic or festive - depending on the plans for the evening. However, do not overload the room with many similar items. Important point: try not to hang in the bedroom large portraits, including close people, because it will seem that you are being watched. This will prevent you from relaxing. Irina Maryina, psychologist, consultant of MebelVia.en: - To create a sense of security, try not to put a bed next to the door. As an ancient person would rather choose a place in the depths of the cave than lie down next to the entrance, and modern people subconsciously feel protected on the bed away from the doorway. For the same reason, it is not necessary to hang items above the bed: a large chandelier, a fan, etc. When something hovers over an unprotected person, he has a sense of threat. For the same reason, the shelf above the head of the bed is best replaced with a bedside table or dressing table. Maria Cherkasova, designer: - Be sure to consider a place where to remove from the bed and decorative pillows that create all the beauty, but usually take up a lot of space. You can, for example, give them a place in the closet or on the banquet. Invisible Light Light is best done soft andpleasant, you should avoid too bright its sources. In the morning, immediately after awakening, the eyes are not yet ready for sharp light, which when turned on can cause unpleasant sensations. In the evening, the organs of vision and the brain are "preparing" for sleep, therefore, it is necessary to avoid intense stimuli. It is best to use several sources: for example on the ceiling, on both sides of the bed and next to the cabinet so that you can easily find the right thing and navigate the room at night. But each of these lamps should create unobtrusive, slightly muffled lighting. In the bedroom it is good to use shades of warm colors to provide a soft indirect light. Maria Cherkasova, designer: - I am a supporter of arrangement beautiful and practical at the same time. For example, I refused the spectacular table lamps standing on the sides on the bedside tables. It would seem that they hold the composition so well! But with the experience came the understanding that on the nightstands there is no room for glasses, or for tablets, or for a book or tablet. Therefore, I offer beautiful sconces, and for readers - there are also such among customers - LEDs or halogen on a flexible hose, directed straight into the book. Not so expressive, but very convenient. interior of Maria Cherkasova Interior of Maria Cherkasova Non-working placeThe main goal of the bedroom is to provide a full rest for the body and restore strength after a day's work. If you work in this room at a desk or on a laptop while lying in bed, the brain will not adjust to a healthy sleep, as it can not distinguish the work area from the resting place. And this means that in the morning you will have to wait for the inevitable fatigue from lack of sleep. If you have the opportunity to place the desktop foroutside the bedroom there, try to divide the room into zones, for example, using a transparent bookcase or an open rack. Due to the fact that such furniture is non-monolithic, not bulky, space will not decrease very much, but the body will receive an accurate signal, where to work and where to rest. Before bedtime in many familiesit is customary to watch a movie or a TV show, news or entertainment programs. However, you need to do this in the living room, and remove the TV from the bedroom. The fact is that during its viewing the human brain does not rest, but, on the contrary, processes a large flow of information, which is often very negative. So there is an overexcitement of the nervous system, which can lead to sleep disturbances. In addition, usually in bed a person looks in an uncomfortable position, half-asleep, which leads to tension in the thoracic and cervical spine. And this, in turn, causes headaches, a feeling of weakness and fatigue. Irina Maryina, psychologist, consultant of MebelVia.ru: - Negatively affects the presence of a "blue screen" and on the sexual life of partners. According to a study by the Italian psychologist Sirenella Salomoni (Serenella Salomoni), spouses watching TV in the bedroom have half as many sexual contacts as those who do not have a TV in the bedroom. Especially negative influence on sexual desire is provided by watching reality shows and aggressive films. Also with his vision of a harmonious interiorThe bedroom was shared by the architect Olesya Glazkova. Olesya Glazkova, architect: - The bedroom is a place of solitude, spiritual and physical rest, this is our refuge from the outside world. When designing an apartment I recommend having a bedroom on the east or south-east side to wake up at sunrise. Use in the bedroom better light colors, especially pistachio, and the floors choose natural shades. Furniture should be at a minimum, as this gives a sense of space and air. The central element in the bedroom is a bed, it should have a beautiful headboard. Recently, I refused large-scale and cumbersome headboards in favor of gypsum 3D panels - they give the interior a special charm. Also I recommend to refuse the central lighting, and instead use secondary lights, sconces, table and floor lamps with soft light, which will fill your bedroom with warmth and comfort. Have a rest more often!
