Key Ingredients to a Romantic Bedroom
Romantic Interior Fabrics
Love is in the air with Valentineâ€™s Day approaching, but that doesnâ€™t mean your bedroom can only have a romantic vibe for just one day. In fact, considering the bedroom is a place where you and your significant other spend a lot of time, itâ€™s a room that should remain romantic all year long. If you arenâ€™t sure where to begin, consider 5 key ingredients: your senses. Letâ€™s take a look at how you can create a romantic bedroom that will appeal to your sense of touch, smell, sight, taste and sound.
The bed is the focal point of any bedroomâ€”and to make it romantic, your goal should be to make it as cozy as possible. Luxurious sheets, such as high-quality Egyptian or Prima, soft blankets, plush pillows and custom bedding are all great places to start. But donâ€™t forget about the mattress or the headboard. A good mattress will make your time together heavenly and a custom headboard will make the room feel like youâ€™re in a five-star hotel.
Grouping scented candles together not only smell nice, they also resemble a romantic fireplace. Not every scent works well for everyone, so if you arenâ€™t sure what your partner likes, lean toward something mild. If you two have a favorite vacation spot, close your eyes as you test the scents to see if thereâ€™s something that brings back memories of your trips there.
Please your eyes with your color palette and lighting. Crisp or creamy whites, as well as soft grays and blues, provide a soft, romantic look. A neutral palette accented with silver finishes will give your room a luxe look. Chocolate browns and red will give the room a passionate punch.
When it comes to lighting, you can keep it simple or go all out with a chandelier. Whichever lighting you choose, choose lower wattage or install a dimmer so you can control how much light you want. Lamps, sconces and candles are also great low-lighting ways to set the mood. In regards to natural light, dress your windows to complete the design, control light and provide privacy.
Champagne and chocolate are a perfect combination for a romantic setting. Be sure to keep a tray handy, or if you have the space, add a bistro-sized table and chair set to create a nook for times you want to have a romantic evening at home.
Music is a mood setter so be sure to keep your favorite CDs handy. Your bedroom should be a sanctuary, but if youâ€™d like it to remain a romantic one, move the television to another room to avoid distraction from each other.
