romantic bedroom

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
