Embrace the art of romantic home decorating
by adding just a few meaningful touches. Evocative colors, flowers, mixing vintage and antique-inspired pieces with modern decor, and of course, anything French can transform a so-so space into an exquisite getaway.
Corset chairs with plump pillows, a pair of sparkling chandeliers, and a fragrant bouquet create a decidedly French atmosphere that manages to portray a sense of intimacy despite the ten-place setting. Replicate this look on a smaller scale to heighten its romantic appeal.
If choosing just one space to begin your romantic home decorating adventure, make it the bedroom. Here, flirtatious textures and glowing finishes create a sumptuous setting for intimacy; from the tufted headboard to the curvaceous chest, deliciousness is the overriding theme. Mercury glass ornaments reflect the chandelier's soft sparkle, and a simple bouquet of blooms provides a splash of colorful contrast.
A simple dining room is wonderful in that it's often like a blank canvas. Here, a classic crystal chandelier pairs with skirted cane-back chairs
and an urn filled with large white blooms. While decidedly romantic, the look is subtle and versatile.
Romantic home decorating isn't always about sparkle and shine; here, it takes a rustic detour. Simple farmhouse touches contrast with billowing gauze and plump white bedding. A single lantern stands ready to replace the soft glow of a textured pendant light.
Bold, feminine pink looks ultra-chic in this cosmopolitan setting. Keeping the scheme uncomplicated by pairing a single color with neutral silver prevents the setting from appearing cluttered. While perfectly posh and unashamedly bold, this romantic home decorating idea is also plenty of fun.
Classic and oh-so cozy, this living area sets the scene for romance. Simple textiles provide the perfect backdrop for a grouping of candles and fresh roses. French-inspired wall art adds interest and a round mirror in a gilded frame creates an inviting sense of openness.
Relaxed and romantic, this cozy nook provides the perfect setting for an intimate chat. Curtains contribute a sense of privacy, and an assortment of cushions offers irresistible appeal. Whether in a secluded corner of the den or inside a master suite, this comfortable spot is brimming with potential.
Romantic home decorating doesn't have to be overtly feminine; in fact, you can add exquisite sensuality by using gender-neutral tones, adding interesting textures, and displaying exotic plants along with carefully selected blooms - even a single rose or magnolia blossom will do! Mirrored surfaces, crisp white accents, and a plush sofa contrast beautifully with rustic woods and natural fiber floor coverings.
