Valentine’s Day is the one day of the year dedicated to celebrating your love for someone. This year, why not make it one to remember and plan something special?
You don’t even have to leave the house – stay at home, cook a romantic meal and create some ambiance and drama in the bedroom. Show your partner how much you love them with your carefully executed and seductive bedroom décor.
Heat things up with warm colours
Red and pink are traditionally the colours of romance, passion and love, so using them will help to conjure up these feelings as soon as you walk in to the room. Used tastefully, these bold colours have the ability to transform your bedroom into a love haven.
Set the scene with the perfect bed
The bed will be the main focal point of the room. In fact, if you need a new bed why not surprise your partner and buy one ready for Valentine’s Day.
King size beds work especially well, creating a dramatic impact when your partner first walks in. If you are going to make it a surprise, make sure you have done your research into the kind of mattress you both prefer before making your purchase.
Think ‘romance’ with your bedroom accessories
Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse for a new set of bed linen. Choose red for a dramatic and romantic effect, or a pure white if you would rather offset the other colours in the room against the bed.To take the romance up a notch, scatter the bed with red petals and cushions for a luxuriously seductive look.
Co-ordinate your curtains with your bed linen and a rug to bring the colour scheme together. Dark curtains are best because they to help to block out any external light and noise, creating a more private and intimate mood.
Create the perfect ambiance with mood lighting
When the sun sets, your lighting will make or break the ambiance of your evening. Dimmer switches are ideal, but if you don’t have them, forget about the overhead lighting completely and use only lamps.
Candles are a Valentine’s Day must-have, adding romance to any room. Arrange them into small groups, and use mirrors to reflect light around the room, creating more depth.
To guarantee a truly magical atmosphere you could invest in some delicate, twinkling fairy lights. Wrap some around the bed frame and the headboard to bring your bedroom to life.
Stimulate the senses with beautiful scents & music
Add some sensual nostalgia by spraying your bed sheets with your partner’s favourite fragrance, and play some music you both love to indulge your partners senses of smell and sound.
Make sure you have removed any clutter from the room, otherwise there may be too many distractions and your effort could be wasted.
Decorate from the heart and show how much you care using details personal to you both – frame a wedding invite, or place your partner’s favourite chocolate on their pillow.
This is the one day of the year that it is not possible to be too cheesy – relax and have some fun with it.
