Bring on the Romance!

Is it time to bring a little romance back into your life? No matter what your love life looks like, you can bring a glamorous and sexy look into your home – and have it last long after your Valentine’s Day flowers fade away.  Here are some of our designers’ favorite tips for creating a romantic look  – no matter what your style.

A feast for your eyes. Food is just downright sexy, and your dining room should be as well. Set the stage for dinners you’ll want to linger over by choosing soft, dimmable lighting, a table that feels intimate and chairs whose side arms don’t isolate you from your dinner partner. We love the graceful modern curves of this sophisticated suite from Lexington’s Tower Place collection.

Simple is sexy. When it’s carried off well, the hottest look can be jeans and a white t-shirt. Likewise, the texture and elegant minimalism of these Bernhardt Keegan chairs screams sexy without trying too hard. Look for pieces with clean, simple lines to get the look.

Tried and true. Rooms should never look too polished to be real. We love pieces that look as if they have been well-loved for years. You can mix pieces like this Hooker sofa and chair with more modern accessories for an eclectic look.

All about the angles. When people think romance, they often go overboard on feminine details. Adding a few masculine elements in space balances a room and creates an unmistakable aura. We love the art deco romance of this Sligh studio collection desk.

Soft and touchable. Of course, you do need an amazing upholstered bed to fall into. For modern appeal, opt for a sleek choice. However, we adore the old fashioned royal charm of Thomasville’s Paris collection.

Take it outside. Romance should never be confined. You can create a dramatic look in outdoor living spaces by following the same principles. We love the sexy angles, clean lines and sheer snuggle factor of the Cypress Pointe Ocean Terrace from Tommy Bahama home.

No matter what your style, you can add a dash of spice to heat things up in your home!
