Gardening trends 2010

Colour has an amazing effect on our moods and also on how we feel. That is why it is extremely important to ensure that the colour you choose for yourbedroom is perfect. Warm neutral colours like red, green and blue will work well in the bedroom. Red is a very passionate colour and will also evoke that kind of mood, whilst blue and green are more calming and relaxing. Green is also associated with fertility and growth within the marriage and a good choice to be used in moderation. The problem is that red can also lead to aggression, so if you do decide to incorporate this colour into your bedroom, do it moderately by adding a red comforter or pillows and not by paintingyour walls red as this could be too much. White or beige is ideal colours for your walls, as this will go well with any other colour that you choose. Do not choose colours like yellow (which can lead to great irritation and nervousness) or pink (which may make the man in your life feel uncomfortable).
