Creating a Romantic Bedroom to Impress

Posted by Mark Godsell-Fletcher on

It is the season for romance, candle light and luxurious fabrics.  Creating a romantic bedroom is very much about adding those little touches of opulence.  Nothing says romance like rose petals scattered across satin sheets lightly lit by candles and a chandelier.  Creating a romantic bedroom doesn't have to cost a fortune and I have some great finds that ooze luxury, and will impress for all budgets. Candles Beautifully scented candles are a must for any romantic bedroom.  You want a scent that is intoxicating but not overpowering.  It is not just the scent that is important but also the candle design.  You want a candle that is chic and stylish. These lovely scented block candles are simple and elegant.

Crisp white sheets would be the perfect contrast against rich, warm and valentine reds and is one of the simplest and most effective ways of creating a romantic setting.

Chandelier Traditional chandeliers sparkling with crystal is an easy way to bring some luxury into your romantic bedroom.  Your chandelier should be the right size for your room, and complement the colour scheme of your bedding.  Your chandelier should be of neutral tones for a white scheme, where as where reds have been used you can be more adventurous by adding black. This 3 arm chandelier by is a real bargain and looks more expensive than it's £30 price tag.
