By Melissa Dittmann Tracey, REALTOR® Magazine Love is in the air with Valentine’s Day this week. But a romantic flair to warm up your home design may very well be in style year-round. In fact, one-third of homeowners say they intended to renovate their master bedrooms to create a more romantic or intimate space, according to a 2015 survey of more than 1,500 homeowners conducted by Houzz, a remodeling website. How do you achieve a more romantic style with your décor? Here are a few ideas. 1. Fluffy pillows The more pillows on the bed, the better. Decorative pillows can add a softness to a room.

  2. A lush Rug A faux sheepskin rug under the bed may add a touch of luster to the flooring.
  3. Whites and pastels Softer colors can add a more romantic vibe. Pristine white mixed with soft pastels may add warmth to a bedroom. Try whites or pastel bedding and accessories up against a slightly darker wall color for just the right contrast.
  4. Fireplace Illuminate a space with the glows from a fireplace or candles.
  5. Flowers Fresh flowers can spruce up any room in the house–and as an added bonus they often bring a pleasant scent too. Even small bouquets can still make a statement.
  6. Chandelier Add in more glam in the bathroom with a crystal chandelier that can reflect the light and bring a little sparkle.
  7. Intimate outdoor spaces You can get romantic with your landscaping outside too. Set a scene with a small table and chair set, greenery surrounding, and strung lights to create a cozy spot to unwind or dine.
