I am not really all that great at the whole interior design thing. My house is more decorated and functional for having three (soon to be four) children roaming and living in the house. I don’t want to have to worry about them spilling water on the couches or breaking something I saved forever to be able to afford, nor do I want them to worry about always having to be careful. It’s their house too, after all.
Once place that rule doesn’t hold true is the master bedroom (most of the time). When my youngest daughter transitioned from our bedroom into a room with her sister, we declared that room, our master bedroom, a kid stuff-free zone. It generally stayed that way for the past year, and as we transition the room to be more friendly for a newborn, which will join us in just over a month, I can easily say that it was exactly what I needed — a romantic escape.
While we are forgoing that romantic space for a couple of years in light of a newborn coming into our life, I have hopes that once he’s older, we can bring back the romantic oasis of our bedroom. It’s amazing how a few quick fixes can take your bedroom from just another room into the house to being a true force in keeping the calm and romance alive in your relationship.
If you’re looking to make your bedroom more romantic for you and your partner, here are 10 quick fixes and places to focus on if you’re wanting to put the spark back into the bedroom.
