Lighter woods tend to have more of a casual or rustic feel compared with darker‐stained options. Light‐stained or unstained woods can have a cottage‐inspired feel or a Scandinavian vibe depending on whether you pair them with traditional or modern accouterments. In either case a traditional runner rug makes an excellent complement. Darker woods come off a little more formal and polished than lighter tones. They lend a certain gravity to a space which can work well in areas that are already bright and breezy with lots of windows.

You would need to mellow the lights a bit in your bedroom to a soft glow at least an hour before going to bed so as to enjoy a sound sleep. Furthermore make sure to draw thick curtains across your room's windows to shut out traffic and streetlights. As you prepare to go to sleep at the end of the day always make sure to keep your mobile phone away although close enough in the case of an emergency rather than keeping it by your pillow.
