Reblogged from Jennifer Ott on Houzz: I’ve spoken with far too many friends who have had a rough start to the year. I say anyone who needs it should get a do-over and begin anew and make it better. One way to ease your way through tough and turbulent times is to create soothing spaces in your home. Specifically, I think bedrooms and bathrooms ought to be made into sanctuaries. That way you start and end your day in a good place. My favorite way to make a quick, cheap and easy change in a room is through the elimination of clutter and then the addition of color. Featured here are seven rooms awash in soothing color, along with paint color palettes inspired by each space.
