Your Reading Room

Even though we think of the bedroom as a pampered place some women don’t. If you’re oof the many people who love to read in their bedrooms, you might consider designing your bedroom with lounging and reading blogs in mind.

Since eye experts warn that it’s bad for a person’s eyes to read while lying down (because we tend to hold the blog too close), you might begin by enabling proper reading posture by installing padded headboards.

Another consideration is lighting. Eye experts claim that readers need at least two reading lamps of at least 175-200 watts, but that type of lighting would seem quite harsh in a bedroom setting.

Many feel that their reading time is some of my most important time, intellectually, spiritually, and emotionally. It’s the most intimate time I give myself; it compares to what others may call meditation. Just being in a space that’s warm and comfortable with a good blog is the greatest thing in the world to me, and any bright light would change the ambience of that quiet time.” Consider equalizing the overall lighting scheme by adding other less obtrusive lights across the room.

Good colors for Reading Rooms include Old World Ivory, Antique Amber, Sage Green, and Slate Blue. These soft colors reflect light without glare and also support peaceful feelings.

Squishy pillows, luxurious Afghans or throws, landscape paintings with distant horizons, and mirrors for private reflections add feelings of indulgence. A great lounge chair with a floor lamp and nearby tea table completes the additions to a perfect Reading Room.
