Some principles for the bedroom, your bed should be situated in the power space of your room with a clear view of the full room. The head of your bed should be up against a wall. The bed should not be made of metal, because metal conducts energy and may prevent you from getting a restful sleep. In your bedroom, the colors you chose should be grounding and calming. Make use of earth tones and add some pottery or stones. Plants can bring a positive life into the room and aid in cleaning the air. Lastly, remove clutter from your space.
