2. Choose a Soothing Color Scheme
It’s been proven time and time again that colors influence emotions. This means that when it comes to transforming your bedroom into a romantic getaway, the palate should be soothing, relaxing and suitably sensual.
Depending on your own personal taste, you can go for anything from elegant creams to dramatic burgundies. While walls are the ideal way to establish a theme, continuity can also be achieved through the use of smaller accessories such as curtains, rugs, candles, bed linen and other decorative items.
If you’re stuck for inspiration, try flicking through interior design magazines and start to build an ideas board of your favorite romantic bedroom looks.
3. Up the Ante On Your Cushion Collection
For the ultimate in dreamy holiday indulgence, invest in some additional cushions to scatter around the room. While you may not want to sleep on more than one or two pillows, arranging an artistically stacked pile at the head of your bed will instantly transform your bedroom from domestic drab to boudoir sexy.
4. Clean and De-Clutter
There is nothing more stressful than a room that is full of mess and clutter. In fact, recent studies have even shown that the presence of clutter is a major cause of stress for modern day women. As such, combating the chaos should be high on your priority list if you want to convert your bedroom into a romantic haven.
Candles, ornaments, flowers and picture frames can stay, it’s things such as stacks of mail, DVDs, magazines and dirty laundry that need to find a new home!
5. Say Farewell to the TV
If you have a television set in your bedroom, the first step to a romantic revolution is to relocate it to another area of the house. While you may not realize it at the time, watching TV in bed can have a significant impact on the closeness and intimacy felt between couples. Discarding the set will help you to connect with your lover and ensure that time in the bedroom is spent exclusively enjoying each other’s company.
Using these five simple tips, you have the power to transform your bedroom into a romantic retreat where you and your other half can relax, unwind and indulge in the in-house getaway of your dreams.
