Anyone who has ever thought about repainting your bedroom, may want to think carefully about the color.  If you have ever painted a room, you know full well how labor intensive it actually is.  It’s not as easy as it looks.  A recent study ranks 10 bedroom pain colors by how they affect your sleep and your mood, so the next time you have a case of the Mondays, it could be your bedroom wall to blame.

 Blue walls actually average the most sleep at seven hours and 52 minutes per night.  Why?  Blue is considered a calming color, but also the color triggers special receptors in our eyes that aid our body’s natural sleep rhythms. 

Oooh, don’t do purple unless you want to sleep about 5 hours and 56 minutes.  This color is stimulating and it makes it harder for your brain to go into shutdown mode.  I’ll bet Prince doesn’t get any sleep. 

Brown walls could get you about 6 hours of sleep, but people with brown walls in their bedroom are actually too busy getting sleep, if you know what I mean.  Click here to check out how bedroom colors ranked from most sleep to least.
