Romance isn’t all about relationships, although that part is wonderful. A romantic atmosphere gives a feeling of softness and charm, and the bedroom is the perfect place for such ideas. What better way to relax and unwind than in an atmosphere of romance? In this article, we’ll discuss how to create a romantic bedroom to escape from the rest of the world.
All the Feels
Plain, hard surfaces don’t spell romance. Your bedroom needs texture to allure all the senses and bring feelings of comfort and warmth. Here’s how to add texture to your bedroom:
- Wallpaper or unique painting techniques to make the walls look old
- Throws on the bed in fuzzy materials
- A chair in the corner with velvety upholstery
- Canvases of oil paintings
- Lots of pillows in different shapes and sizes
Not Too Bright
Lighting in the bedroom is important, and when creating a romantic bedroom, the lighting makes a big impact. Consider soft lighting and invest in dimmer switches for setting the mood. Make your light fixtures eye-catching but not cold and modern. Mediterranean and Tuscan style lights are a perfect fit for the romantic bedroom. They bring a feeling of the sea and the romance of Tuscany.
A Bed To Sink Into
We can’t skip the bed or emphasize it enough. You want to walk into your bedroom and long to jump into it. For a romantic bedroom, you need white down comforters, plenty of fluffy pillows, and the softest sheets that beckon you to rest. You can’t go overboard when it comes to softness on the bed. If you can add all that wonderful softness to a four-poster bed, all the better. If not, any bed will do if you cover it in irresistible bedding.
Watch Your Step
Treat your feet to soft, lovely rugs in the bedroom. Pastels and vintage-style rugs lend themselves well to a romantic atmosphere. If the room is mostly neutral, a large, lightly colored rug softens everything instantly and calls for candlelit romantic evenings.
A Soft Glow
Speaking of candles, is romance possible without them? Maybe. But why risk it? Keep candles at the ready by setting them in antique trays on your dresser or nightstand so you can light them in the evening when it’s time to relax.
I don’t know about you, but all this talk of romantic bedrooms makes me want to curl up in bed and read a good book by candlelight. Enjoy turning your bedroom into a romantic oasis. At the end of a long day, you deserve the perfect retreat to lay your head.
