Idea #5: Paint it Blue

The color blue has been proven to reduce stress and decrease blood pressure—both key factors on the path to a good night's sleep—so it's a popular choice in bedrooms. Choose a favorite shade of paint and pair it with a coordinating patterned wallpaper to adorn an accent wall behind the bed.
