I’m not a morning person, so I’ll take any help I can get for waking up early and feeling motivated to start my day. Bold red is an attention-getting hue, so it’s a great color for those who need assistance getting revved up and energized. Keep in mind, though, that red has been shown to raise blood pressure slightly as well as increase stress and anxiety levels, so it’s not a good color for those who need their bedroom to be a mellow sanctuary. Of course, deeper and darker reds that veer toward burgundy are less “hot” and therefore more soothing, so look for those if you prefer a more calming effect in your bedroom.
