Bedroom Lighting To Fall In Love With

Author: Sarah Wigmore
Published: October 7, 2014

Is your master bedroom a bit lacklustre? Do you desire a beautiful boudoir to retire to at the end of a stressful day? If the answer is yes, then why not create your own intimate setting and bring romance back to your everyday life.

The power of the senses; hearing, touch, sight, and smell all bring to life the romantic ambience of the room. Imagine poetry by Keats, crackling fires, soft velvety fabrics and warm golden walls and start to put together a mood board for creating your own romantic bedroom.

Define your style by starting with the lighting. It’s all about the balance between art and science and the secret is in the clever layering of light to add texture and interest to the room.

How About A Few Suggestions?

A chandelier adorned in crystals is the epitome of romantic lighting when hung as a centre piece in your bedroom. The chandelier radiates elegance and will throw beautiful patterns of light across your walls and ceiling to create the perfect sanctuary. Choose one that can be dimmed so you can balance the lighting for maximum effect. Have a look at our range of chandeliers suited to the bedroom.

Table Lamps:

Avoid lighting above the bed which is harsh on the eyes when looking up. Choose eye level table lamps positioned either side of the bed to add ambience to your bedroom. Select delicate lamp bases for a graceful touch or choose bold shades in rich plum tones for a sophisticated look. Don’t be afraid to use black either for your lamp shades for a sense of drama. Drape fairy lights around your headboard and add different textures with sumptuous bed linen and soft throws to complete the look.

Wall Lights:

A beautiful vintage mirror above a dressing table will add glamour to your romantic setting. Illuminate with a couple of ornate wall lamps either side of the mirror for a serene and inviting space.

Floor Lamps

Fill darker spaces in your bedroom with a portable light source that can be moved around the room. Create a cosy corner to snuggle up in with a floor lamp positioned next to a chaise longue. Cover it with scatter cushions in rich velvets, faux fur, satins and silks to elevate the romantic vibe.

Always choose dimmable lighting when creating a romantic bedroom as they can be fully illuminated when you need task lighting for selecting clothes from your wardrobe and applying make-up. They can then be toned down instantly for a more soothing atmosphere. Mix up your lighting with scented candles and add a vase of freshly cut flowers to saturate the air with sweet smells. Fill your room with gorgeous objects that capture your heart and turn your bland bedroom into a beautiful boudoir.
