Keeping the spark alive is an essential part of maintaining a strong relationship with your partner. Couples usually book a staycation, a romantic holiday overseas, or create sweet surprises to add some spice to their relationship every now and then. That’s all fine and dandy, but what if we told you that the simpler, cheaper, and more effective way of reigniting the love spark lies in your bedroom?
Couples often forget that the bedroom, a place where they spend most of their intimate moments in, plays an important part in their relationships. The space where you frequent can affect your mood, which is closely related to how you react to your partner.
With that said, we’ve listed some decorating ideas for your bedroom that you can try:
1. Starry night
Lighting candles are dangerous and definitely not something you should use in the bedroom in the long term. Instead of candles, put some fairy lights in your bedroom! They can really set the mood for a romantic evening. Besides, they’re inexpensive and aren’t difficult to install.
In fact, you can even go for a ‘freestyle’ design: on the headboard, around the edges of the bed, on the wall, etc.
2. A bed of roses
Life may not be a bed of roses, but that doesn’t mean that your bed(room) can’t be. Red is a passionate colour, and so are rosy hues. Get some rose-coloured bedsheets or curtains for your room to get this cosy and sexy design.
3. Warm and cosy
A study found that bedrooms with warm colours (eg. caramel, orange peel, bronze, etc.) can stir up more passion in couples. You can try this by painting the walls a shade of bronze, getting sheets in brown, or have wooden flooring installed.
Designer Eric Cohler recommends thick and dark curtains to make your bedroom sexier. Curtains can be used to shut the sun out, making the bedroom more relaxing and cosy. This is great for those days when you just want to stay in bed a little longer for some snuggling.
5. Princess-themed bedroom
There’s something incredibly romantic about a four-poster bed – especially those that looked like they belong to some fairy tale princess. You don’t necessarily need a canopy or curtains for your four-poster bed (they’re not really practical in the Singaporean climate), just pair it with comfy sheets and you’ll have a really romantic bedroom already.
6. Soft and comfy
Bedrooms with soft linens and fluffy pillows make this personal space like a getaway. Think back to the most comfortable hotels you’ve stayed in: aren’t the sheets and blankets super soft and comfy? Bring in a soft carpet to complete the romantic look!
7. Romantic wallpapers
Wallpapers can create a romantic effect with their sophisticated textures, something a simple paint job can’t create. Choose wallpapers with an antique pattern if you have a four-poster bed; or a modern one if your room is decorated in soft hues.
8. Go Floral
Floral-themed decor and home items always give out an elegant and classy vibe. They can also make a bedroom look really sensual and romantic. You can try this look by getting floral sheets or wallpapers.
9. White sheets and wooden frames
White on wood may remind you of the island honeymoon you had a while ago. This simple and rustic combination will bring back many sweet memories and reignite the passion of those early loving days.
10. A playground of colours
Bold and contrasting colours can make a bedroom look romantic too! It’s all about contrast: red and black; orange and white; blue and yellow. This makes your bedroom look young, fun, and exciting at the same time!
