With larger master suites being built in today’s homes, bedrooms have evolved into comfortable getaways for people to relax and unwind from their hectic schedules. The extra square footage leaves room for many decorating possibilities in this personal retreat.

This season’s eclectic blend of sleek, contemporary styles and opulent, classic details are combined to create the perfect romantic escape in the comfort of your own bedroom.

The current trend in bedroom furnishings is leaning away from the standard set of a bed, two nightstands and a few dressers all of the same style and collection, towards a more romanced and eclectic combination of pieces to create a personal refuge or escape for people who need it.

People are becoming more creative by adding romantic elements to their bedrooms in their furniture, wall colours, fabrics and accessories as well.

Long gone are the days when people go to high class hotels in the middle of a jungle for a romantic getaway, our own bedrooms can been transformed into love nests that every couple in love need.

When it comes to creating a love nest out of your bedroom, the first thing to be considered is the colour of the room.

Colours play an important role in the bedroom; if you want to add romance and sizzle to the space, stick to fiery colours which can arouse desire and excitement. Avoid lacklustre shades like white and beige.

Replacing dull sheets and bedroom accessories with ones that pack a powerful punch is another way to turn up the volume too. Throw pillows and drapes can also spark some visual heat in a cool room. Lighting plays an important role as well. Keep the room dim, but not dark.

Luxurious pillows, throws, duvets and other accessories can help create an atmosphere of romance.

There is nothing as worse as being greeted by a cold, hard floor when you wake up in the morning. Choosing plush, thick carpet for your bedroom will make the entire room cosier, not to mention softer and gentler on your feet. Keep the colour neutral, so focus on the romantic colours and elements throughout the rest of the room.

When it comes to invigorating the senses, scent should not be ignored. In fact, research shows that a person’s memories are most strongly related to his or her sense of smell. So, give your partner an experience he or she will never forget by incorporating some spicy aromas like vanilla or cinnamon into the room, daily if possible.

Also scented candles or fragrant oils are great for creating a memorable atmosphere, perfect for unwinding and letting loose. Music is another way to create atmosphere in the bedroom. But choose wisely.

The songs or genres you pick can affect the type of mood you want to create.

If you’re looking to liven up the night, more powerful tunes may be in order. But if a more intimate vibe is what you seek, stick with classical or a smooth jazz. Avoid music with words, which can distract from the moment.

By using these tips to set the mood in your bedroom, you will have no need to go for an expensive journey to experience it, but you will live this experience every single day of your life; after all life is short live every minute as if it was your last!
