Want a luxurious, romantic escape where you can read a book or curl up for a nap? Turn your bedroom into a romantic getaway with these 4 tips:
- The fluffier, the better. What kind of bed makes you want to take a running leap and sprawl among the covers? It has to have a lot of plump pillows and a deep, comfortable bedspread or comforter. Get down-feathered items for a rich look that will make you long for bed every time you walk into the room.
- Set the mood with color. The color you choose in the bedroom will help set the mood. Bright colors are fun and peppy—they’ll put a bounce in your step. Dark colors are mysterious and amorous. While you can add romance with any color, pastel shades are the most romantic—they’ll bring a fresh air to the bedroom.
- Think sheer. Lace, silk and other translucent fabrics speak of romance and feminine luxury. Try sheer curtains, a lace-trimmed bed skirt or ruffles on a vanity seat cushion.
- Add a little sparkle. It doesn’t hurt to add a little glamor—especially if it’s in the form of a chandelier. Match the fixture with the colors of your bedroom for a cohesive look. If you can’t add a chandelier, drape a strand of sparkly beads over the side of a bedside lamp or headboard.
