Whether you are single or taken this Valentine's Day, romanticize your bedroom with a bit of charming decor. Lighting, soft linens, candles, and fresh flowers are just a few ways you can make your bedroom a more alluring space to retire for the evening.
- Chandeliers add a grandiose element to a bedroom. Hang a dramatic cascading light fixture to the center of the room like this Tier Cascade Faux Chandelier ($58) from Urban Outfitters. Going with a neutral color like champagne will easily work with most color schemes plus it will set off a rich, warm light when turned on at night.
- Nothing feels better than tucking into a soft, fluffy duvet comforter at night. Pottery Barn's Cherry Blossom Organic Duvet Cover ($99 for full/queen) has a tranquil porcelain-blue background and beautiful flowered design for a romantic, Spring touch.
- Allow your room to be filled with soft, natural lighting by using sheer curtains like Restoration Hardware's Open Weave Sheer Linen Drapery ($129).
- Keep your room dimmer by avoiding overhead lighting and opting for petite, bedside table lamps instead. West Elm's Perch Glass Lamp in Clear ($55) has rustic charm with its blown glass base and natural-hued shade.
- Candlelit rooms are always seen as a romantic gesture, but you can also enjoy the warm, glowing silhouette of candles on the day to day as well. West Elm Candle Lanterns ($12-$34) come in orb and cylinder shapes, and they don't require plates or candle holders to catch drippings. They are a simple yet sophisticated design that allows the candle light to pass through the thick wax.
- Fresh flowers always add a pop of brightness and intoxicating scent to the bedroom. Find new and creative ways to showcase your blossoms, like using a Lidded Canister ($69) to float large blooms atop water.
