Blue If your boudoir is aqua or azure, you probably catch a lot of shut eye — and you’re a cheerier person for it. People with blue bedrooms got more sleep than any other color, clocking in at seven hours and 52 minutes per night. It’s not just coincidence, either. Specialized receptors in our eyes — the same cells that inform our brain’s daily rhythms — are most sensitive to the color blue, according to Chris Idzikowski of the Edinburgh Sleep Centre.Blue is also associated with calmness (just think of the ocean or sky) and it can lower your heart rate and reduce blood pressure. Unsurprisingly, more than half of the people with blue bedrooms said they regularly wake up feeling happy. Paul Raeside Yellow Surprisingly, the second-best color for sleep is yellow. The sunny hue stimulates the nervous system, encouraging relaxation. Plus, the cheery shade creates instant coziness.

Thomas Loof Purple People with purple bedrooms are the least rested of all, getting on average a measly five hours and 56 minutes sleep per night. The rich color is actually very mentally stimulating, making it difficult to switch off after a busy day and potentially causing vivid dreams or nightmares. Maura McEvoyAdvertisement – Continue Reading Below Dark Brown The color isn’t as cozy as you think — it can make residents feel isolated, uncomfortable, and restless. Jonny Valiant Gray Dark gray isn’t a good choice, either. Besides its dreary connotations, the survey found people with gray bedrooms spent the most time online shopping in bed instead of catching up on sleep. William AbranowiczAdvertisement – Continue Reading Below Light Brown Romantics, take note. Couples who sleep in a bedroom with caramel décor have sex three times per week on average, more than any other color. Christopher Sturman Red And contrary to popular belief, red bedrooms are actually the worst for romance — these residents reported having sex just once a week.
