Romantic Decorations & Furniture


 

If you are decorating for romance, you want to be careful about the kind of accessories you choose to display in the setting. You want every item in the room to be beautiful. Ugly or tacky images will be a distraction that can ruin the mood of the entire space.

 

Certain kinds of art are wonderful accents for a stimulating setting. Try to find pieces that are lovely to the point of being inspirational.  Seeing landscapes, portraits, portrayals of beautiful bodies or of nature can prime prime choices for intimacy.

 

Tribal fertility art or renaissance body portraits are one way to add decorative items to a room in an understated and elegant manner.

 

Furniture

 

The most important piece of furniture in a bedroom is, of course, the bed. In an intimate setting this piece will almost certainly be the focus of the room. You want your bed to be both comfortable and beautiful. You want it to be a setting that will inspire you, and make you feel relaxed.

 

You can think of the bed as a canvas, and use sheets, pillows, and blankets to paint your scene.  Pay attention to your feelings as you try different sheets and comforters in different ways. Purchasing satin or silk bedding can be an easy way to instantly make the bed a romantic centerpiece.

 

A simple trick to increase the perception of intimacy in a room is to get rid of your box spring. By lowering your mattress to the floor, you will make the room feel closer. You can surround the bed with short night tables, and move larger furniture such as dressers against the wall, to complete the feeling of intimacy. Now the room focuses in three dimensions on one spot.

 

An intimate center piece can also be created around a bed by building a simple canopy. Nail pieces of 1x2 to the ceiling around your bed, making sure to secure them into studs. Then simply staple some gauzy fabric to the border of this frame, creating pleats as you do. A canopy can be a private little cove you can escape from the rest of the world.

 

The creation of an intimate bedroom is totally dependent on your specific taste. You have to feel comfortable in a room, before you can expect anyone else to. Experiment with colors, lighting, and accessories, to create a setting which is both calming and exciting. Don’t be afraid to change the look or feel of a space. You’re enjoyment of the room is the ultimate measure of your decorating success.
