Use the right colors
Color greatly impacts our physiology and psychology and shouldn’t be taken lightly. If you want a comfortable and inviting atmosphere, it is recommended you select warm, rich earth tones such as copper, cream, coral, terra cotta, tan, cocoa and peach. Soft colors such as green, lavenders and blues provides the home a tranquil and quiet vibe, and brings healing energy. Oranges and bright reds are more stimulating and are related to yang – the masculine side of the yin and yang energy equation.
A romantic bedroom decor created by yours truly.
For you to increase the romance in your home, opt for the color pink and red. They both are colors of romance and using them immensely improves the romance in any relationship. When applying these colors, use them as accents around your home – for instance, on your bed, in the form of pillows, sheets, throws etc. Peradventure you don’t love red and pink, you can use variations such as eggplant, pomegranate, burgundy and magenta.
Stimulate the nose with romantic smell
You can use fragrance-scented candles in place of a romantic fireplace. However, when doing this, you should select a scent that falls in line with your style. Think about the scent that brings back those memories of vaca! You can as well use an essential-oil diffuser in place of fragrant candles (lavender stimulates relaxation while rose, jasmine and geranium scents are associated with love).
Other tips you can also consider include using linens – especially smooth silk and Egyptian cotton; playing nature or relaxing sounds; serving yourself a nice glass of wine or bowl of strawberries dipped in chocolate while in bed. All these offer your chi, as well as your state of mind a whole world of good.
