There’s just nothing like having a romantic, super sexy bedroom space. After all it’s the most intimate room in your house. But making your bedroom look great doesn’t mean it has to look cheap or cheesy. Here are some easy tips to help you create the sexy, romantic look you want, all in good taste.
Color & Lighting
Color and lighting help set the stage for a romantic bedroom. Heat thing up with warmer tones. Choose paint in shades of peaches, pinks, reds, creams, chocolate browns and burgundies. According to color psychology, these hues trigger a sense of passion and connection. You can go bold if you wish, or stay with a more subtle hue and add pops of romance colors with throw pillows, area rugs or wall art.
When it comes to lighting, bright bulbs cast strong shadows and should be avoided. A fabulous thrift store crystal chandelier can be the crowning glory of your bedroom abode, but make sure to install a dimmer switch.
Use 40 watt bulbs on your bedside tables to help create a relaxed mood. Recessed or concealed lighting also work very well in a large bedroom to help cast light on a dressing table or seating area.
Luxury and comfort are the golden rule for master bedroom linens. Always choose the finest quality linens you can afford to make your bed the most comfortable it can possibly be. There are no exact rules when it comes to thread count, but look for a nice cotton blend in the range of 300. You also want to feel the sheets before you buy.
A natural cotton blend is preferable to sateen as it absorbs moisture and allows your skin to breathe. Always invest in good sheets – they will serve you well and last for years. You can decorate the bed seasonally by switching out your comforter and pillows if you wish. You can go as frilly or contemporary as you like with shams, dust ruffles, duvet covers, etc.

Amp up the romance factor with wonderful bedroom decor, but always remember that less is more. Thoughtfully displaying a few cherished items will add more drama and impact than lots of little trinkets and knick-knacks cluttering up the space. Clutter does not make for relaxation, so choose your decor with care.
How about an ornately framed black and white photo of your beloved on your nightstand? Fresh water in a crystal decanter with 2 drinking glasses and a bouquet of fresh flowers adds a fresh and thoughtful touch. Decorative reed diffusers and scented candles infuse sensuous fragrance into the air.
Top your dresser with a jewelry box worthy of a princess. Don’t forget a classic old fashioned brush and mirror set.

And there you have it. A romance-inspired bedroom design perfectly suited to your style.
Use these simple tips to inspire you to create a romantic bedroom design with ease. The results will make you swoon. Your room is sure to delight and beckon you to relax and unwind with that special someone. Now that’s romantic!
