Everyone wants a little more romance in their lives. Whether you’re single and seeking out a new love, or a married couple trying to add the romance back into their lives in the wake of having young children, sometimes it can be a struggle to get that warm fuzzy feeling inside. Decoration is one way you can do this, and turning your bedroom into a romantic sanctuary is the perfect way to inject a little je ne sais quoi back into your life. Below are five simple ways you can convert your bedroom into the ultimate love nest.
Indulge in Luxurious Fabrics
Creating a romantic vibe in your bedroom is all about appealing to the senses. Touch is one of the most powerful senses when it comes to romance and you can heighten this sense by introducing luxe fabrics like silk, satin, velvet and faux fur into the room in the form of bedding, throw pillows, or a rug.
Introduce Soft Lighting
Nothing says romance quite light the soft light of flickering candles. Candles are a simple, inexpensive way to make your bedroom feel intimate and cosy. Choose candles made from natural waxes like beeswax or soy and if you are a fan of scented candles, choose products that use naturally sourced scents or simply buy an essential oil burner. If you’re not a fan of candles, you can achieve a similar soft lighting effect by draping sheer fabrics over your lampshades to diffuse the light.
Decorate in Romantic Shades
Colour has a profound effect on the way that we feel and introducing rich greens, blues, purples, or reds into your bedroom can help imbue a heady sense of romance in the room.
Get Rid of Clutter
This is one of the simplest and sexiest things you can do in the bedroom to set the mood. Clutter is distracting and likely to remind you of all the chores waiting for you on the other side of the bedroom door. De-clutter your room as much as you can and conceal those things you can’t get rid of with the help of a bedside table and some clever storage ideas.
Create Some Personal Artwork
Making your own artwork is a great way to add a unique, personal touch to your love nest. There are plenty of great DIY art ideas out there, from printing your favourite romantic quote or poem on some reclaimed wood to blowing up an old love letter and turning it into a wall decal.
