As an editor at House Beautiful, it’s no surprise that I believe good design has the power to promote a positive mood. But there’s also a pretty big crowd within the science community backing me up. For example, a 2015 survey published in the Journal of the Association for Psychological Science reports that most people feel like their emotional wellbeing is influenced (and in some cases, regulated) by a room’s ambiance.

A simple way to ensure your bedroom design promotes a positive mood and feels like a place you can unwind in? Make sure it reflects your style, incorporates your favorite materials, colors, and patterns, shines the right light, and maximizes space. If you need some inspiration to revamp your bedroom, you’ve come to

Whenever I think of Key West, I think of traveling all those miles in an un-air-conditioned Chevrolet with the windows opened and the fresh smell of sea and sand as we all made our way to the small hotel where we would vacation…

The thing about the Florida Keys is the Cuban and Caribbean influences as far as color is concerned…You will see a lot of “Sherbet Colors” as I call them…paler shades of pink, orange, yellow, blue..more pastel in nature.
