Romance In The Bedroom

Day of love is just around the corner and I can give some ideas on how to have a romantic bedroom decor in your love nest. These simple steps will add a romantic setting.

Lighting is one of the most important aspects with a soft glow that makes it soothing and romantic. Don’t use harsh lighting from an overhead lighting fixture. Try a table lamp or even a chandelier these are the perfect ambiance lighting.

The soft color palette in blues, creams, pastels, grays, and for a fun dramatic style why not all black room. Avoid strong, bold colors like red, orange, and chartreuse green. Even though red is always connected to love, it’s too strong for a romantic bedroom.

The center of the bedroom is the bed. A cozy bed is a wonderful way to start with. Here’s are a few bed styles that say, love, upholstered headboard, poster bed with a canopy with sheer fabric, and sleigh bed give you a feeling of being embraced with headboard and foot board. These beds will speak the language of love.

What makes the bed even a more special love nest is the bedding. Envelope yourself in a beautiful comforter in a soft fabric. When it comes to the bedding its all about the layers that make a pretty bed. Just don’t through a comforter on the bed but add pillows as part of the layers. Try using pillows of different fabrics, laces, tassels, and some inspirational quotes on the pillows of love.

To add romance to a room with another layer is adding wallpaper/wall covering. Wallpaper can be so romantic with color and patterns. Wall covering is when using fabric to cover the walls and it can shut out the outside world as a sound bare when use padding between the wall and fabric. Wall covering gives a sense of serenity.

Window treatments are just as important to the finished room if you use soft fabric for shades or long panels. They have a function to control the lighting in the room and sound. Besides having a function, they can also be romantic just like the pillows with their fabrics, laces, and trim.

The bedroom is the first place you start your day and it’s the last place you end your day. So why not make a bedroom give add serenity and love to a romantic setting. If you are married or in a relationship want to draw someone in your life make the bedroom your place for love.  Set the mood with these simple and easy tips.

Why I use a life coach

 Why may you want to have a life coach? Because sometimes you feel out of balance or just need some perspective on what to do next in life.  That’s how I feel lately and sat down with a life coach Jillian Johnson https://jillianj.com/  For me it was trying to put all the puzzle pieces together and have a roadmap of what’s was around the corner.

You ask what is a life coach? It is the process addresses specific personal goals, business successes, and help discover obstacles that are in their way. They make you have accountability for your action and commit to your goals. They draw out a map for your action, so you can get what you want out of life.

 What heck does this have to do with interior design? A lot if you think about it. an Interior Designer is a life coach for your home. I draw a map (Floor Plans) and give you suggestions to improve your life within your home through balance and function with interior design. This helps you find what is blocking you from moving forward in the design process. By taking actions to set goals of making your home or office reflect your lifestyle and tell a story. Many of my clients will say that they dislike how the room looks and never use it. This is usually due to how the furniture is the placed, color, or even the lighting, all of which can throw a room off.

This is where I listen to what your need and wants are for space. These are the same steps that a life coach will take for their clients.

The steps for your home will be:  

  1. Questionnaire to find out what are your needs and wants
  2. Come up with a plan of action
  3. Rendering
  4. Samples
  5. Shopping list
  6. Final install of your new room.

This is a process to achieve your goal of reflecting what your lifestyle is and story.

 If your home needs an Interior life coach, let’s refresh, remove, and redesign and discover what are the obstacles in your home or office.
