There are few things more fulfilling than decorating your home to suit your own personal tastes. When it comes to your own relaxation, taking the time to add a romantic touch to your bedroom can be a very rewarding experience for you and your partner. This is the room where the “magic” happens, so let’s take a look and see what you can do to set the mood and light the spark.
Nothing adds more flair to a bed than a canopy; a shear white fabric that hangs like gossamer threads and catches the glow from the moon. Now that’s a way to light up your room with a virginal promise about to be broken.
If that all seems a little too minimalist and sterile, then perhaps a more modern take is what you should try; headboards are no longer just plain wooden book-ends, they now come in striking shapes and glorious patterns and colors, which can allow them to be the regal centerpiece of your bedroom space. This headboard by Tina Mellino add the right touch for a romantic bedroom setting!
Another dramatic design statement is the four poster bed, with its ornately carved posts, each design more stunning than the next. Susan Hollis picked this elegantly designed headboard for this bedroom. But if you would rather have a more straightforward design to your posts, then adding a canopy as Barry Dixon did in this bedroom. The fabric framed over the top can provide a touch of class and elegance, whilst also providing a splash of color, depending which way you decide to go with the canopy; plain and simple, or patterned and daring.
If you are mostly happy with the current design of your space, but want to make a subtle change, then making upgrades in the lighting can do just that. The muted glow from a bedside lamp can completely change the original coloring and look of your room with the simple flick of a switch. Alternatively, adding a dimmer setting to your existing lighting can transform the room into whichever mood you want to set for the evening.
Whether you decide to go for subtleness or grand, make sure your bedroom is a reflection of who you are and your personal taste! Make sure it is a room you can’t wait to come home to!
