Often neglected, but undoubtedly the most important room in a house to design. I get so many calls in a week for a Living and Dining Room Consultation, Family Room, Sun Room, etcetera, etcetera…. Why are so many homeowners (speaking especially the married readers) neglecting their bedrooms?
I say it in almost every home I enter…”Decorate first for yourself and last for others”… The bedroom is the most personal space in your home. While your living room is the entertainment central. I make a master piece in the living and dining areas only to be disappointed when the last room that I address in so many homes is the master bedroom. I often tell homeowners “do it for yourself, do it for your sex life!”
For you to have great sex, you need to not only be in the right mood but your immediate surrounding, should be right as well. In a well designed bedroom, every element, down to the colors and smells you chose will reflect the clear intent for love, healing and relaxation. A well planned color scheme, and floor plan will invite and excite you, all while calming you at the end of your day.
The making of a romantic bedroom has some key elements.
Uses of chocolate browns, reds, and pinks will naturally elevate your romanitc mood.
Silky Chocolate brown, the right lighing scheme, and hints of blue’s.
Sensual Fabrics, and a lot of them!
A rose colored wall of mirror, placed in the perfect location.
Lighting-A double head board (both padded) and the perfect lighting scheme.
Feng Shui Master Mohan Deep, – “Relationships can be treated by correcting the energies of the bedroom. Since the bedroom is all about peace, harmony, love and passion, the right Feng Shui enhances the relationship and over the years I have seen that Feng Shui corrections have help to save several marriages. Right environment including colours and the position of the bed do the trick. In fact the way a bedroom looks gives me an insight into the state of a couple’s marriage.”
Not ready to call in a designer? Start off by making housekeeping in your most personal space a priority. A clean bedroom is pleasurable to be in, either you are there nap, a good night sleep or to make love!
