Many people use their bedrooms as a romantic getaway within their homes. Decorating your bedroom with a romantic flair takes some time and consideration and definitely needs to entice all five of your senses. It is not as simple as lighting some candles and having silk sheets. A truly romantic bedroom should be well thought out and appeal to both beautiful.
With a romantic bedroom, you want your bed to be as inviting as possible. Things to include are luxurious sheets and blankets, plush pillows, and definitely a comfortable mattress. Try to stick with calming colors like light blue, pink, and ivory, or jewel-toned colors like purple and emerald green for the color scheme. If you really want a romantic bed, then avoid frilly lace and uncomfortable accents that really do nothing to set the mood.
If you are going for a romantic feel for your bedroom, avoid harsh bright lights. Instead, go for more of a soft and filtered light for the room. Use a light bulb that has a lower wattage or instead of an overhead light fixture, use lamps for the room’s light. You can go for a very basic light fixture or even chandelier if you have the proper room in the bedroom. Another great style tip is to try decorative lampshades that filter the light to another color such as light pink or a soft red.
One of the most important accessories that you can put in a bedroom to give it ambiance is candles. There are so many different types of candles from floating candles that you can place in a glass vase to large pillar candles that sit on decorative plates of boxes. The type and color of candles depending on your specific room and what style you are trying to accomplish. Remember that you still have to live and sleep in your bedroom. Some people tend to go overboard, and then they find that they are uncomfortable in their own bedroom. Romantic doesn’t have to mean that you have dozens of things in your bedroom. Choose a few key pieces to include in the room and then work from there.
