Most of our romance takes place in the bedroom. Falling in love releases several hormones that increases our love for our other half. Serotonin gives us a view of our better half that gives us a feeling we have a special connection more than any other couple. While oxytocin, a ‘cuddle hormone’ deepens the feelings of attachment and of falling in love. Having the appropriate setting in your bedroom would help you deepen this sense of love towards your significant other. Here are 5 ways to make your bedroom romantic.
Make the place where you cuddle with your other half inviting and alluring. The first thing to do would be to unclutter your bed. Place plumped up pillows on your bed. There is something about having plush pillows that invites the sexiness and “pillow talk” into the bedroom.
Decorate your bed with deep, moody sensual colors such as Bedding Affairs’Palais Suite TENCEL™ Duca Emerald Fitted Sheet Set. Deep colours not only make a statement in the bedroom but it also brings in a sense of intimacy. The smooth velvety touch of TENCEL™ will increase the sense of comfort, closeness and sleep in bed.
Make sure not to turn on any harsh or fluorescent lights in your room (if your ceiling is fixed with a white light). Also, do not use any overhead lighting. Instead, suffuse your bedroom with warm lighting in standing lamps or bedside lighting. Warm lighting reminds the mind of dusk and the time to rest and relax. You can also light up candles such as tealights in safe holders to set the mood. Light scented candles are even better to enhance the romantic atmosphere in the room.
Having abstract evocative artwork can also help bring romance to your bedroom. You can choose a black and white artwork to add to the deep colours and mood to the room, or choose something like Gustav Klimt’s “The Kiss” (above) to create a sense of sensual romance.
Pile on layers on your bed to increase a sense of deep comfort and relaxation. Not only is it inviting but it makes you not want to leave the bed. Try white colours if you have a white interior. White can channel the dreaminess of clouds and a sense of allure in the room. Romance is not limited to deep, dark and warm colours.
