Ambient Mood Lighting
Good lighting can make or break the ambiance of a room. Lighting affects our moods, it can enhance the color on your walls and make the lines of furniture look crisp and clean while allowing artwork to be seen clearly. Achieving different levels of light allows you to set the tone for any occasion. Poor lighting can impede the intended function of your space and make an attractive room feel dreary and unattractive. Layers of light allow you to choose dim lighting to make a space more intimate and cozy, and bright lighting which is brilliant and energizing. You can use lighting to emphasize or modify the perception of a space. Focused lighting over a dining table within a dimly lit room makes table settings of food and drink more eye-catching. Lighting that illuminates the ceiling gives the appearance of it floating upward. Creating an ambient atmosphere will elicit a positive reaction from dinner guests, or for a relaxing evening with your loved one.
Black and White Photo Display
Black and white instantly adds drama to photographs. In monochrome, the ordinary is transformed into the iconic making for a romantic style. Photographs of trips taking together, those life milestones, or simply candid pictures capturing the beauty of everyday life make for exquisite black and white displays. Let the photos do the talking by using exclusively plain black frames for a chic look. A blank wall near a staircase makes for the perfect canvas. For a more funky style, go with an array of decorative picture frames in a multitude of colors, metals and styling to offset the uniformity of your black and white photographs. Can you image surprising your loved on Valentine’s Day with a wall filled of beautifully-frame memories?
Luxurious Mantel Display
Adorning your fire place mantel or a large shelf provides luxury and romance in your home all year around. Jarred or pillar candles, fresh bouquets, and a beautiful display of books in shades matching your arrangement turns a bare mantel or shelf into a work of art. Set your display against the backdrop of a light-reflecting decorative mirror in on-trend metallic for pure elegant style.
To keep up the everyday romance, add in meaningful items for a sentimental surprise to remind your loved one of the beautiful times shared together. Framed tickets from that memorable concert or trip across the world will bring importance to your space and act as beautiful conversation pieces to show off your love. Romantic décor should personalize your home, while achieving a cohesive style for a harmonious atmosphere.
