Romantic endeavors

“Sleep, perchance to dream” as Shakespeare declared – every creature needs a place to lay their head.

Like Goldie, who is curled up head resting on paw pads, to create a soft pillow.

Indulge the Romantic you

The Bedroom is a great place to get away from it all.

Basics include a good bed, excellent lighting and perhaps a chair to curl up in.

here are some ideas mixed up with some Home and Garden photographs from the Conde Nast collection:

Be bold in the bedroom– color is an easy way to create a mood

Use the apricot heart of a rose you love, or a deep inky blue sky that brings peace floating to the surface.

A painted ceiling can be magical.

Fabric is sensual

Not just color here, but texture, pattern and type of fabric can be used to changing the space dramatically & create mood:

Use behind the bed, to create statement. Cover a headboard or drape from floor to ceiling.

Texture & color add DRAMA!

Bedding that coordinates, ties the space together.

Avoid too many pillows or lots of small items.

Size Counts.

When choosing your bed frame the scale of the piece should be taken into account.

Don’t crowd the space. Leave room for walking.

Understand your needs:

eliminate clutter and pare the space down.

Less clutter means more tranquility.

Unify

Paint all the pieces of furniture one color to unify. Reduce the clutter to clean lines and simple elements. Make sure the furniture is comfortable.

Organize your essentials with containers like baskets or trays.

Speak to your romantic soul.

Art is an important element in a bedroom. Hang pieces that are joyful and nourishing.
